Zyxware Technologies enters into Technology Partnership with QUEST Alliance
Zyxware Technologies is now a Technology Partner for QUEST Alliance in the Skills to Succeed Program which is a global corporate citizenship initiative of Accenture.
QUEST Alliance was founded in the year 2005 as a program of the International Youth Foundation (IYF), financially supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) to help educators and educational institutions drive the use of technology in teaching and learning.
Since the IYF mandate ended in 2009, QUEST Alliance has been established as a not-for-profit trust that focuses on research-led innovation in teaching and learning. QUEST engages with educators, civil society, government institutions and corporations to demonstrate and enable scalable and replicable solutions in education and vocational training. QUEST seeks to harness the potential of educational technologies and contextualize it to address real world challenges for disadvantaged children and youth.
With seed funding & support from Accenture, QUEST Alliance has developed a set of blended learning tools under Accenture's global skills training initiative "Skills to Succeed", to prepare youth for employment in India's retail & customer services sector. ‘Skills to Succeed' provides a single window platform for vocational training leveraging e-Learning as the primary approach towards this end. The program does this through an ICT led blended learning approach towards teaching and learning. The objective is to impart real world knowledge and skills to disadvantaged and underserved youth across India with a special focus on enhancing their employability to seek customer interaction and retail sector jobs. The Programme is currently being run in the states of Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Kerala and Gujarat.
