Delhi, 8th April 2021: Within just a month of launching a new business solution and rebranding its 100% subsidiary, The Gate Academy (TGA), now rechristened as the ‘upGrad Jeet’, has enabled over 142 government-job seekers to come in the Top 100 AIR (All India Rank) List and move strongly towards achieving their desired career goal. These learners are required to go through 900 hours of training over a period of 12 months, which includes online coaching/training, one-on-one career counselling sessions, projects completion, workshops with industry mentors & experts, along with other engagement programs to help them enhance their skill sets. Such an advanced teaching structure and detailed guidance helps learners crack GATE and attain meaningful professional growth.
One such inspiring success story is of a young upGrad Jeet learner, Polarpu Akhil from Kalyandurgam, Andhra Pradesh, who comes from a very humble background and is a son of a bus conductor. He battled all his personal struggles to achieve great heights in the recently announced GATE 2021 results and secured AIR 4 in Electronics and Communication (EC), thus making his family proud. Akhil now stands as a role model to all those who face financial difficulties and thinks cracking the entrance exams is not possible. “My message to all those who are preparing for Government exams, is to remain positive, and be consistent in your daily preparation,” he adds.
Ritesh Raushan, CEO - upGrad Jeet commented, “Most of the Government job aspirants come from humble backgrounds with certain financial or personal limitations. They find it extremely difficult to travel to metro cities for quality education and coaching. Hence, our vision at upGrad Jeet is to get the best of teachers and offer their tutoring to learners from the remotest part of the country who are deprived of quality education.”
Mayank Kumar, Co-founder, and MD, upGrad added, “In line with our vision of driving meaningful career outcomes for our learners, we have differentiated and extended our line of solutions to reach the length and breadth of the country. We are happy to support and to play an important role in empowering the nation, particularly the youth.”
