About Skillioma:

It is India's first interdisciplinary education platform with a unique framework to teach skills which boosts career success. Along with this National Talent Hunt exam, they were also offering courses and certification programs for Communication Skills, Leadership Skills, Job Skills, Career Success options, Entrepreneurship skills, Financial Literacy skills, Business skills, Marketing skills, and Soft skills. 

Skillioma’s mission is to bridge the gap between education and employment. Empower the youth with the right wealth of skill-based learning that pays them for their lifetime.

The idea for starting Skillioma arose when the founders Mr&Mrs. Harish and Deepa Thatikonda in USA working under IT firm. The fact about unconventional learning methods and streams other than Math & Sciences are discouraged in our traditional education systems, the linear fashion of navigating information, Lack of practical skills in this generation of students and youngsters awakened them to do something in the educational sector.

As founders, they were confident that if they provide the right, relevant, real-world skills to the youngsters, these skills pave the path for building the critical arsenal in the youth that pays them for their lifetime. When they conceptualised and were about to launch their beta version; Govt of India, launched NEP 2020 guidelines at the same time contra and the GOI-NEP guidelines were in the same vision as the Skillioma ideas. This in a way gives them a boost for the further discovery and validation of their ideas.

They made strides towards achieving the mission’s vision by creating a unique framework and in-house personalised programs for “K-12” and “Beyond 12th” that align with NEP 2020’s vision of holistic learning.
