Internshala announces free access to its online training programmes for children of healthcare workers

Internshala has announced free access to Internshala Trainings, its e-learning platform, for the children of healthcare workers. As a thank-you gesture for all the people working in the healthcare sector at the forefront of India’s fight against Covid-19, the children of all such staff will be provided free access to the online training programmes till 15th April when the lockdown period ends.

Children of the employees working at a government-recognised hospital (public or private; doctors, nurses, paramedical staff, cleaning staff, ambulance drivers, receptionists, billing, diagnostic, and people employed in any other department of a hospital) who are studying in a government-recognised school or college (public or private) would be eligible to avail this benefit. The students can choose to learn a number of skills including programming, data science, business communication, design, and creative writing on Internshala Trainings through its short-duration online training programmes. Under this initiative, the facility will be made available to 1,000 eligible students first and will gradually be rolled out for all eligible students across India.

“While we are at home, the healthcare workers are out there screening and treating Covid-19 patients, putting in extra hours, and taking risks for our safety and well-being. Through this initiative, we want to express our gratitude by supporting their children in whatever ways we can,” said Sarvesh Agrawal, the founder and CEO of Internshala.

“As the students are not able to attend regular classes, through this they can make productive use of their time to learn a new skill or build a project. In fact, based on a UNESCO report, 1.37 billion students all over the world are out of school and colleges right now due to Covid-19 and online learning has to step in to support the students at such a critical time,” he added.

Internshala was founded in 2010 and is India’s largest internships and training platform with over 8 million students as users.
