DronAcademy was established by a group of the education enthusiasts coming from a diverse background of academics and industry. Their experiences both in academics as well as in industry gave them very valuable insights on current employment scenario and employability of the youth. Our years of research and experience in the field of education and industry shows that despite that fact most organizations, Government, Government undertaken and Private, have large number of vacancies but they are not able to fulfil them. This is primarily because there is a wide gap between the role requirements and skill level of the applicants. In most, if not all, of the organizations, the judgment of skillset of the aspirants is based on their performances in competitive examinations and interviews. These competitive tests are designed to check applicants’ quantitative aptitude, logical reasoning, verbal ability, knowledge of economics and humanities etc. In today’s job market, these are essentials for employability of a candidate. While our traditional education system, focuses on enhancing the knowledge there is still a large gap in skill development. This is not just a problem in India but worldwide. While globally, the young generation makes up 25 percent of the working-age population; yet their share in total unemployment is more than 40 per cent. Research shows that, young people are almost three times more likely to be unemployed as adults. Skill development can enable the youth to make a natural shift to work. There is a need of a comprehensive approach to integrate the youth, men and women, in the employment market, with pertinent and necessary skills training, job market information, well informed career guidance and employment services with training. With basic education, if core work skills can also be honed, it will help the youth with lifelong wisdom – not just ensuring a job today. In DronAcademy, our uniquely crafted pedagogy, designed by experienced academicians and research specialists with years of experience in academia, is coupled with an innovative delivery approach to ensure the success of our students.
