A few colleges have initiated to develop content to be delivered online. Online/distance education has become the need of time and many higher education institutes have started to move towards it. This will ensure uninterrupted learning for students irrespective of the situation in the future.
The lockdown situation due to coronavirus outbreak has brought the entire world to a standstill but RAGC has ensured delivery of lectures with its online learning. The video lectures are supported by online tests and assignments to understand the adaptability of every student. RAGC is using Augmented Reality (AR) in it’s online teaching methodology to demonstrate the activities to substitute the practical learning. Recent feedback survey with students shows that more than 82% of those engaged in this learning process are satisfied with the content and the delivery method.
We are overwhelmed to see such a positive response and appreciation for our online learning initiative in this pandemic from parents. This has motivated us to continue engaging students through online training. We thank all students and their parent for their support during this period.
We conducted a short survey with parents to understand how effective the online training initiative is to engage their child while in the lockdown.

Rustomjee Academy for Global Careers (RAGC) has proposed a unique initiative aimed at providing vocational education to high school students which will provide them with useful skills that can ensure a job in the future. A curriculum that helps build their capabilities at a young age and appeals to their interest would encourage more students to complete their high school level education.
RAGC and the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC) have identified and recognized the need for adding the vocational element to the curriculum of high school students where they are encouraged to ‘learn by doing’ and this has been the basis for the initiative. Thus, students in the 9th and 10th standards of 16 TMC schools across Thane will have the advantage of the vocational education programme designed by RAGC.
These are students from middle and lower middle class families and typically many are unable to complete their high school education due to various reasons, including loss of interest in education or needing to work to supplement the family income. The introduction of the RAGC programme will provide them with vocational education in the fields of construction, hospitality and automobiles. Their multi-skilled education foundation will stand them in good stead in the future when they are required to earn a living. 500 students will benefit from this one year program by RAGC.
Speaking about the initiative, Percy S. Chowdhry, Director,Rustomjee Group said, “RAGC has always been primed to provide the youth with the right skills and education that will enable them to contribute to the nation’s workforce. We believe that education should match industry requirements as only this will ensure that students upon completion of their education will immediately be absorbed into the relevant sectors. Introducing this vocational education programme at the high school level is one more step in the direction of making children realize the value of vocational education and the need to complete their basic education.”

Few years back when CSR became mandatory in India, the objective of the policy was to generate funds for the benefit of stakeholders – people affected or displaced when an enterprise was set up or expanded its operations. Any infrastructure project paves its way through land acquisition which brings in the monetary compensation with it but in today’s scenario companies are going a way ahead and investing into the communities by doing their bit. MSRDC is doing this by providing vocational training to the youth of these communities and empowering them with sustainable means of livelihood.
Maharashtra Samruddhi Mahamarg is an infrastructure project that will build a fast-track, state-of-the-art expressway connecting Mumbai with Nagpur thereby connecting JNPT to Multi-modal International Cargo Hub and Airport. This super communication expressway will traverse around 392 villages from twenty-six talukas in ten districts, covering five of the state’s six revenue divisions. This project requires large-scale land acquisitions. 16 construction companies will be working on this project for 3 years.
Under Mumbai Nagpur Super Communication Expressway’s (MNSCE) skill development and entrepreneurship component, Rustomjee Academy for Global Careers will provide vocational training to members of these families thereby imparting employable skills among them and helping them earn a living. 120 youth and 3000 construction workers are set to undergo vocational training at 2 new towns in Aurangabad & Buldhana. The training will focus on developing skills for Assistant barbender & steel fixer and Multi skilled technician.
“This expressway project will take 3 years to complete. 16 construction companies and 1000-2000 workers will be working on this project. This will require 500-600 skilled workforce throughout the tenure of this project.” Said Mr. Abhang, Executive Engineer – MSRDC while addressing the beneficiaries.
RAGC is committed to place who successfully complete the training under consideration. After successful completion of training of the said pilot numbers, RAGC will replicate the same in other new towns along the Mahamarg, aiming to train 25000 falling under the purview of the project.
