Taking into account the COVID-19 public health emergency, the school education department along with UNICEF India has begun an online portal for the students of classes IX-XII.
The online portal has been developed by UNICEF in partnership with iDream Career. which will give the students a space for effective learning and will allow them to look for information on a variety of subjects.
Students will also be able to seek information regarding various entrance examinations and look for various career options. The service will be available for students from May 27. Students will be able to access the portal through an ID and Password which will be shared with them.
The portal features over 500 careers on traditional and nontraditional areas which are offered in a sophisticated way, which allows the learner to seek for opportunities in the respective fields.
According to Varsha Gaikwad, school education minister, who launched the portal, www.mahacareerportal.com, this portal will give students a chance to seek hidden career opportunities which otherwise may not be exposed. The portal will also act as an important tool to empower young girls.
This portal will not only be of significance to just students but also the state counsellors and mentors for guiding students and helping them to make the right decision.
