EdTech Platform Skill-Lync to Upskill 10,000 Students In Partnership With Tamil Nadu Skill Development Corporation

The course created by Skill-Lync was much appreciated and well received by the colleges under the "Naan Mudhalvan'' programme.


One of India's largest Engineering Ed-Tech platforms, Skill-Lync announced that it will train 10,000 students in partnership with the Tamil Nadu government. Currently, it has trained up to 3640 students from 364 colleges under the "Naan Mudhalvan'' programme, launched by the Tamil Nadu government. This initiative aimed to offer students access to industry-focused next-generation skills. Through this partnership, Skill-Lync provided its customised course called Industry 4.0, which upskilled students on emerging technology and helped optimise manufacturing across the industry. 

The programme introduced contains 19 professional courses under which Skill-Lync’s Industry 4.0 has been highly appreciated by many colleges affiliated with Anna University. It used industry style embedded hardware kits to train the students such as ESP Node 32, Servo Motors and GHT sensor.  Professors believed that the course has proven to be very useful for the future endeavours of their students and also mentioned that the session was well structured, organised and implemented effectively while admiring the efforts made by the startup. Skill-Lync with the help of industry veterans have professionally designed the course to open up new career opportunities for students of these colleges by upskilling them to learn new skills and enhance current ones.  In addition, students will also have access to Skill-Lync learning management system that gives students access to additional courses and assessment platform for interview prep

Furthermore, Jeba Jayaraj a professor in Apollo Engineering College extended a heartfelt thanks to the team and said, “Without the team’s co-operation and guidance it would have been very difficult for the students to complete all the sessions and assessments successfully. Both the online and offline sessions were very useful for the students as they gained a good experience and knowledge while interacting with the trainers.”

The edtech startup accomplished this in 3 phases, Faculty Development Program (FDP) being the first phase. Skill-Lync first trained around 469 faculties in 5 strategic locations across Tamil Nadu. The second phase had Online Learning, where Skill-Lync  prepared students online with extensive assessment and feedback sessions. The third phase was offline training, under which it trained  the students across Tamil Nadu in 105 colleges across five strategic locations organised by the Tamil Nadu Skill Development Corporation. With the help of this process, the company was able to train students across Tamil Nadu on Industry 4.0 skills with a hands-on hardware-based approach.
