Ignis Careers to Impart In-Classroom English integrated Life Skills Training Digitally in 500 Schools
Ignis Careers, a Hyderabad-based social enterprise providing capacity-building programs for teachers in government and affordable private schools (APS), has developed a digital platform for imparting its Life Skills training program targeting first generation learners from low-income communities.
This comes on the back of the funding of $150,000 it received from Atlanta-headquartered education sector focused impact investor Gray Matters Capital through its edLABS initiative, paving the way for it to digitize the teacher manuals for improving classroom delivery efficiency.
The Life Skills curriculum offered by Ignis Careers is unique in the sense that it integrates English language learning to help students not just get acquainted with the language but to also prepare them for employment opportunities in the future.
The digital platform developed by it will serve as interactive multi-media enabled instruction manual that will help teachers understand instructions clearly and help them to enable a more interactive learning atmosphere in classrooms.
Rennis Joseph, Co-Founder and CEO, Ignis Careers, said, "We aim at breathing purpose into the Indian education system, weaning it away from practices of rote learning and mindless focus on marks. Our life skills focus would empower students with critical thinking, advocacy skills, situation adaptability skills and self-management skills so that the students would go on to build a purposeful life. By improving their English skills along with life skills, they learn to seek and access information for themselves, and eventually learn to make informed decisions in life."
