The Delhi Skill and Entrepreneurship University’s students will now have access to work prospects thanks to a new pilot project the Kejriwal administration announced on Monday with UNICEF (DSEU). The DSEU and UNICEF have started offering “Career Awareness Sessions” for students, according to a statement from the government.
Facilities that will be provided
In order to facilitate access to work possibilities, help students become job-ready, and listen to and amplify the views of young people, the Delhi Skill University teams together with YuWaah (Generation Unlimited India) at UNICEF, according to a release.
According to an official statement, YuWaah facilitates these comprehensive webinar sessions for students enrolled in classes at various DSEU campuses through its network of job portal partners, which includes the National Career Service portal run by the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Apna, Teamlease, and QJobs by Quess Corp.
Prof. Neharika Vohra stated that DSEU has been trying to develop its students’ employability by establishing programmes like Face the World, which incorporates elements like digital skills, communication skills, financial literacy, etc.
She added that because their programmes are industry-integrated, DESU students are gaining pertinent skills, and via initiatives like Career Awareness Sessions, DSEU is working to develop a mindset that is prepared for the workforce as early as semester 1.

The “YuWaah Step Up – Bano job-ready” project, a six-month pilot being run by Flywheel Digital Solutions Pvt with DSEU students and other job seekers in Delhi, is another pillar of the partnership, the government said in a statement. Its goal is to increase the reach of young job seekers on the new generation of job portals.
In order to match job seekers’ skill sets and interests, 1,000 active job searchers between the ages of 18 and 29 will participate in the pilot research with UNICEF and DSEU. Women and job seekers from underrepresented groups will receive additional attention.
Beginning on July 20, the pilot will operate at the Ambedkar DSEU Shakarpur I campus.
