Sri Sai University, a value-based professional and technical education provider, nestled in the Himalayan mountains of India, signed a memorandum of agreement with eduCLaaS Pte Ltd, the international subsidiary of Lithan Academy from Singapore to jointly offer applied undergraduate degree CLaaS® across India.
CLaaS® delivers Competency Learning as a Service to support digital upskilling for higher education students, working adults, and enterprises in the digital economy. It adopts work-based learning pedagogy with a competency-based curriculum for blended learning journeys that deliver tangible career and business outcomes.
Under the partnership, eduCLaaS at Sri Sai’s campus, will deliver applied degree courses with an international work-study journey where the learners gain up to three years of working experience before graduation.
eduCLaaS’s Founder and CEO, Leslie Loh said “Modern employers require plug-and-play graduates who can be productive from the first day of the job. Our 1+3 work-study degrees deliver seamless job induction before graduation: with 1 year of intensive skills acquisition bootcamp and 3 years of on-the-job training at the workplace. Our learners are Glocal (Global yet Local) digital talents as they engage in borderless learning and working, alongside international learners and employers, supported by over 50 regional campuses from across Asia.”
He further added, “We welcome Sri Sai University joining our Pan-Asia eduCLaaS platform for incubating Glocal (Global yet Local) digital talents ready for growth in the post-Covid digital economy.”
Mr. S.K. Punj, Director, Sri Sai University made positive remarks on the partnership, its impact on students, and its global reach. He said, “With getting the exposure right at your doorstep, I believe our well-qualified team is getting aligned with the vision to change the Student Learning Experience. I personally believe the change in the education industry will go a long way. A lot of more digital content, research, and flexibility is the mixture of approaches to harness the maximum potential from the students. I believe we will become the next big name in education across this part of the world. We believe in the future and using technology and changing the mindsets of the students is our main goal.”
He further added, “We are trying to reach a global level with the help of this partnership. This partnership will overcome geographical barriers to access opportunities from overseas. It will affect students' lives directly by upskilling them with the right skill set and giving them exposure to the corporate world. A knowledge-sharing ecosystem will be developed which will eventually help a lot of future students. Since we constantly need to upgrade our curriculum with innovation and collaboration, this will eventually help us improve our standards day in and day out.”
