Rakesh Asthana launches Delhi Police e-learning platform | Delhi News
The e-learning platform, ‘Unnati’, has been launched at the Indian Council for Technical Education (AICTE) auditorium here as part of Delhi Police’s flagship program ‘YUVA’.
“YUVA” aims to help young people, especially those from the weakest sections of society, and school dropouts to get an education and acquire skills to achieve their dreams of a secure future, the officials said.
Through the online learning platform, these young people will be inspired to enroll and choose the program of their choice, they said.
The ‘Unnati’ portal has a very simple design. Anyone can learn from anywhere using a laptop, desktop, tablet or just a cell phone, they said.
The platform offers training, advice and placement to trainees. Recordings of the live sessions are also available online in case anyone misses a class, officials said.
Speaking on the occasion, Asthana welcomed the initiative.
Every year more than 1.5 lakh people are arrested by Delhi police for various crimes. More than 85% of them are first-timers and only 10-15% are repeat offenders, he said.
Initiatives such as “YUVA” and “Unnati” target these 85% of people so that they can have a new chance at life and join the mainstream as builders of society, he added.
Upon successful completion of an e-learning course, students will be awarded a certificate which will help them secure internships, said Delhi Police PRO Chinmoy Biswal.
Courses on offer include a digital literacy course comprising basic computer lessons and typing training, competition preparation courses and sports lessons, among others, he said.
The ‘Unnati’ placement cell was also set up, he added.
On the occasion, Asthana also congratulated “YUVA” interns who found jobs and supported their families, officials said.
