Employability.life to transform the education landscape with the launch of ground-breaking Experiential microcredential offering

The innovative education provider Employability. life formally launched its new experiential microcredentials (XPMCs). By giving students direct experience of professional work environments in bite-size chunks, with an industry-aligned credential, XPMCs will transform the education and training landscape, changing the way that young people prepare themselves for the global workplace. 

XPMCs are agile projects provided by industry experts. Learners are supported by project managers who will ensure that professional work is performed in a safe environment. Students also receive professional mentoring to identify personal strengths and develop five key digital economy capabilities: Growth mindset, Career intelligence, Digital intelligence, Cultural intelligence and Influence. 

The strategic partner for the XPMC product is Federation University Australia, and Employability.life is delighted to launch the project in the presence of their Vice Chancellor and President, Professor Duncan Bentley, and Carolyn Chong, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Global & Engagement), Federation University Australia.  

Dr. Manish Malhotra, Chairman of  Employability.life  said, “India’s dream of building a $5 Trillion economy rests on ensuring that its youth engages productively and meaningfully.  Employability.life , working in partnership with the country’s most forward-thinking education institutions and its global network of entrepreneurs, educators and employers, wants to empower the students to lead their country towards that goal.”
 
Mr. Supriyo Chaudhuri, CEO of  Employability.life , said, “Employability.life  brings experience into education, transforming higher education institutions with project-based learning, all-round engagement with the students and a whole-person approach to their development. We are bringing Agile into education, enabling convergence between the future of work and the future of higher education.”

Given that automation threatens 69% of jobs in India (The World Bank) and India’s digital skilled workforce needs to grow 9 times by 2025 (Amazon web services) the need for a solution is unquestionable. The XPMCs can be easily added to the formal education curriculum of Indian institutions and make the students workplace ready. More than 60 institutions accounting for over 150,000 students are open to adopting XPMCs to enhance the employability of students across the country. 

Employability.life is a rapidly-growing provider of education and training, registered in Singapore and headquartered in London, with offices also in India and Australia. Focused on the ‘Future of Work’ in a world of rapidly changing technologies and employment requirements, Employability.life provides cutting-edge and flexible solutions for students, graduates and professionals to keep themselves at peak readiness for workplaces. 

Through this partnership Federation University Australia will accredit XPMCs and associated
teacher training programmes. Additionally, this collaboration will provide an opportunity for eligible students to visit and work on projects within the IBM emerging technologies hub located at Federation’s campus in Ballarat, Victoria.

The microcredential programme was launched in the presence of their Vice Chancellor and
President, Professor Duncan Bentley, and Carolyn Chong, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Global &
Engagement), Federation University Australia.

Employability.life is the pioneer in experiential microcredentials worldwide. The XPMCs are in alignment with the proposed national credit framework under India’s new National Education Policy.

These microcredentials are built with ongoing industry cooperation to ensure maximum value, the partners have launched the initial XPMCs in Cyber security, Digital Finance, Product Management, AI, Digital Transformation, Supply Chain and Smart Manufacturing. By combining these future-facing topics with the benefits of experiential learning and bespoke credentialing, Employability.life will revolutionise training and qualifications, as well as reshape human resource management for corporate partners. 

Professor Duncan Bentley, Vice-Chancellor and President of Federation University
Australia said,
“In a first for Australia, the globally recognised co-operative education model will be embedded across all Federation programs from 2025. Therefore, we are delighted to enter into this strategic partnership with  Employability.life supporting their mission to build a global co-op ecosystem, which will bring educators, employers, and learners together to help build the digitally-savvy talent that the global economy needs. We have a longstanding relationship with India and we look forward to playing our part in realising its vision to be the ‘skills capital’ of the world.
