UP govt partners with iDreamCareer; aims to provide career counseling to school students


The Secondary Education Department of the Uttar Pradesh government has partnered with iDreamCareer (iDC). This partnership aims to provide in-person career counseling to give school students a better direction.

14,700 students in Classes X and XII from five districts—Varanasi, Kanpur, Meerut, Lucknow, and Ghaziabad—are the target audience for this project.

In these five districts, about thirty-one counselors will raise awareness of education while assisting students in discovering their ideal universities and securing scholarships, as well as educating them about the various career paths available in the field.

The project, which is funded by the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, is an addition to the Pankh Portal, which provides technology-based career awareness to students in government and government-aided schools.

“The project will ensure the maximum number of college admissions with scholarships by providing the students with in-person counselling sessions, career details, exam patterns, and a helpline number to support last-mile help till they get admission in a college or vocational programme”, said Vishnu Kant Pandey, Additional State Project Director, Samagra Shiksha (secondary education).

Ayush Bansal, Founder & CEO (Chief Executive Officer), iDreamCareer, speaking on the initiative said, “The project aims to facilitate the upward socio-economic mobility of the students who otherwise drop post Class X and XII. The project will help students from knowing about the world of careers to knowing themselves, finding the right career and course, helping with college application, and finally, help with getting them the right scholarship. Subsequently, enabling them to get into right-fit jobs which ensure job satisfaction.”
