21st Century Skills Program

Be Career-Ready With New Age Skills

What are 21st-century skills?

Don’t let this new buzzword confuse you. Simply put, 21st-century skills are a crucial set of knowledge, skills, work habits, and character traits that educators and school reformers believe are critical for modern professionals to have a successful career.

Why are 21st-century skills important today?

In this disruptive age, students strive hard to keep up with the constantly shifting demands of the marketplace. According to the World Economic Forum’s 2023 report the gap between the skills people learn and the skills people need is becoming more apparent, as up to 50% of all employees will need to be reskilled in the next 5 years.

Furthermore, with traditional jobs quickly becoming obsolete due to the advancement of technology and AI, an estimated 69 million new roles will emerge by 2027 in response to the new division of labour between humans, machines, and algorithms.

Plugging 21st-century skills into education is the need of the hour. Students, on the other hand, are rarely groomed for professional excellence in their early academic years. Once they step out of their cocooned school or college life, it becomes challenging for them to understand the expectations of future employers and interviewers, having never been exposed to this world. Equipping students with 21st-century skills early on brings order to this chaos.

ProTeen grooms generations of young adults for successful careers and prepares them for a dynamic career market. Employers, too, have shifted from traditional methods of evaluating candidates for jobs. Today’s interviewers do not hire candidates based only on their academic performance – they assess if candidates are career-ready with 21st-century skills.

“Proteen, as I discovered later is a website for future planning and career guidance. I think it is a major flaw in our education system that we do not make the students aware of the 'other' choices they have. Proteen takes upon itself to do and has successfully done it. The company caters to the needs of the students and works for their interests.”
