In line with HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s (Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai) vision and plans towards developing skills and expertise for the youth of tomorrow; Skills 21 is Arc Skill’s commitment and endeavour to empower younger generations and prepare them to face unknown industry laterals.
Speaking on the occasion; Mr. Mithun Kamath (CEO, Arc Skills) said, “Skills 21 equips children with critical 21st century skills such as communication, collaboration, problem-solving & decision-making. Through a fun and engaging learning experience, students develop 21 unique competencies. The program works closely with teachers and parents. The aim is to nurture the unique strengths of each child and give them the confidence to succeed in a globalised and fast-changing world.”
In today’s fast evolving world, there is an increasing gap between content-driven educational system and 21st century skills based work opportunities. Skills 21 is designed for students from Grade 7 to 12. It runs as an extracurricular activity to identify, nurture, and develop 21st century soft skills that are vital for success in and beyond school.
