The challenge of educating and training several million young Indian citizens will be explored at a major conference to be held in London in January 2015, and ALISON CEO Mike Feerick will be among the speakers at this prestigious international event.

The India Skills and Education Innovation Conference 2015 will bring together leaders in the technology communities in India and worldwide. Among the topics for discussion are the possibilities and challenges for cross-continental collaboration. The event will also provide a platform for thought-leadership in the Indian education space and explore the investment opportunities and challenges within this fast-growing and exciting sector.

Innovations in technology, curriculum and financing of education will also be themes of the conference, as well as the potential for partnerships between employers and educators.

ALISON offers free online courses to more than four million learners worldwide – 300,000 of whom live on the Indian sub-continent, where the company is a key education provider.

English language, IT and financial literacy are among the most popular courses with ALISON’s Indian learner community.

The India Skills and Education Innovation Conference 2015 will run over January 14 and 15 at King’s College and at the Microsoft campus in central London.
