India’s EdTech Sector Creates 75,000 Jobs In Last 5 Years

India EdTech Consortium (IEC) Mumbai has reported that 50,000+ professionals are currently part of the EdTech ecosystem.

The Indian EdTech sector has generated employment to the tune of 75,000+ jobs for the Indian workforce in just the past five years, according to data collected by the Indian EdTech Consortium (IEC) formed under the aegis of the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI). Over 50,000 professionals are currently part of the EdTech ecosystem.

The accelerated employment opportunity created by EdTech, which allows Indian professionals to create value globally, is particularly evident in the context of COVID-19 induced job losses in 2020. From an unemployment rate of 7.11 per cent in the first phase, this has now declined to 6.57 per cent, the lowest since March 2021 according to CMIE. 

The Indian start-up ecosystem has generated tremendous employment opportunities during challenging times and EdTech has emerged as a significant job creator as per IEC data gathered from its members. 

The EdTech sector has been working on a two-pronged approach to improve overall employability and opportunities for the Indian workforce. While the sector itself has been hiring the best-in-class talent to drive business growth, EdTech companies have also been training learners across the spectrum to secure better jobs through training and upskilling. In addition to direct employment, Indian EdTech companies have also been responsible for creating ancillary job opportunities to support business operations and growth.
