The Government of Maharashtra, India, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Microsoft India to enhance ICT adoption in schools and build the employability readiness skills of the future workforce in the state.
Under the new agreement, in addition to the three academies which will, over the next two years, train 6000 teachers as well as 100,000 pre-service teachers, Microsoft will also help build last mile capacity among educators.
One educator from each cluster in the state will be required to undergo a 10 day training module in a classroom setup; and each of the trained resources can then further build ICT readiness among others educators in the cluster.
Microsoft will conduct over 200 sessions at the District level over the next two years for training 6000 resources in as many clusters.
