IIT-Madras startup GUVI to offer free Python and AI courses in tie-up with AICTE

IIT-Madras and IIM Ahmedabad-incubated edtech startup GUVI is partnering with All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) to offer Python and AI upskilling courses free of charge to more than one million socially and economically disadvantaged youngsters.

Education minister Dharmendra Pradhan, who launched this programme in New Delhi on Monday, praised startups like GUVI for their contribution in the distribution of free edtech coupons as part of NEAT 3.0 (National Educational Alliance for Technology – AICTE).

The free one million Python programming and Advanced AI courses can be learned in various vernacular languages such as Tamil, Hindi and Telugu, among others along with English.

Free access to this will be available through a registration process enabled on the GUVI official website. The learner also has an option to avail an IIT-Madras certificate on the GUVI Python programming course by taking an assessment and paying a nominal fee to IIT – Madras.

AICTE plans to distribute free edtech coupons to students whose annual family income is less than Rs 8 lakh. These free coupons will be distributed through the NEAT portal as well as through the GUVI website.

“Our aim to bestow the best employable skills on our nation’s youth coincides with the aims of NEAT. Python programming and AI skills offered through this collaboration will be of strong support for the deserving students, helping them to grow in their career,” M Arun Prakash, founder and chief executive officer, GUVI, said.
