Over the summer Prof. Daniel Khan, Chief Exec. for the Nisai Skills Academy, travelled to India and met with a range of skills training providers across several cities including Kolkata, Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore. With a major drive by the Indian government to up-skill national workforce and compete with the global market, Daniel discussed how Nisai can assist in helping them to achieve their goals.
Attending the first-ever Education Innovation Conference in the city of Pune, we joined over 150 attendees worldwide to talk about education innovation in India to explore the combination of practical learning and traditional teaching with new technologies. Daniel represented The Nisai Group, participating in the EIC debate; 'This house believes current education technology developments in India will drive to overcome the most critical educational challenges in the country'. Putting forward a robust defence that was voted best session at the conference, he argued that educational technology alone is not the panacea for upskilling the Indian workforce, leadership from the Government and Industry appropriate funding from both is crucial, alongside work force planning and work experience for individuals, helping to deliver additional skills to national workers. The trip offered great potential for Nisai to integrate services into workforce training, and we’re excited about our new venture!
