    Indian technology giant, Infosys has announced to launch a digital skilling programme, Springboard that looks to reach its goal of reskilling more than 10 million people by 2025.

    The programme will be open for everyone from Std VI students to senior-level professionals. According to Infosys, Springboard is part of the company’s environment, social and governance (ESG) goals.

    “Students and educators need digital curricula and platforms that are more than just hand-me-downs from corporates to truly serve their needs,” Thirumala Arohi, senior vice president at Infosys said.

    Powered by the company’s education technology platform Wingspan, Springboard offers a set of courses developed in collaboration with Coursera and Learnship. It includes programming challenges and practice areas, apart from vocational and soft skills training.

    The program will also allow learners to assess themselves and be certified through examinations. Springboard already has 400,000 learners, and more than 300 educational institutions, NGOs, and self-help groups use the platform.

    Infosys said Springboard allows learners to prepare for emerging jobs and careers and helps working professionals pick up advanced digital skills. It also helps teachers collaborate better and allows NGOs to impart learning to underserved sections of society. The service is available as an app on Google’s and Apple’s App Store.

    “Parents and guardians, on the other hand, need the assurance that the learning prepares their wards adequately for the future. NGOs and support groups need to extend this to all strata of our society,” Arohi added.
