Education is a foundation of sustainable development. (Deloitte One Young World Scholarship fully Funded to Tokyo). It empowers individuals, nations, and societies at large. However, the COVID-19 pandemic disturbed students’ education worldwide. Globally, thousands and millions of people have failed to catch up, with about 1.6 billion students being affected by the pandemic and with roughly about 24 million children doubted to ever return to school. Educational inequality was a challenge globally even before COVID, but this COVID -19 pandemic has by far widened the learning gap.
DEADLINE: 8Tth December 2021
The past year within the lockdown has given a glimpse into what education and learning per say in the future could be like. It pushed the adoption of new classroom technologies to increase on the learner’s access, and this has clearly shown the speed at which teachers adapt plus their vital role in our learning communities. We must use this moment to analyze, re-think the skills plus opportunities required for future success, and put an emphasis on equitable education solutions so that no one remains behind.
At Deloitte, we are more than committed to expanding opportunities for say about 100 million people and this should be by 2030 by empowering job skills, improving educational results, and then looking out for or providing opportunities for individuals from underrepresented groups around the world to taste success.
