Skillogs to launch international bachelor of culinary arts via acarya, their ai-powered vocational online learning platform at BETT 2020

P Atkinson - 28/01/20

 

London, 28/01/2020: After a busy start to the 2019-2020 school year with more than 10,000 French students joining their digital learning platform, Skillogs is expanding internationally to train learners across Europe at Bett 2020 (stand SR40). Skillogs have adapted their ACARYA digital learning platform for the UK market & will be launching it at the show, alongside their new International BA in ‘Culinary Arts & FoodTech’.

A new era of education: for ages 6 to 99

Skillogs’ digital learning platform, ACARYA, aims to bring an end to chapter-based e-learning, and identical MOOCs for everyone thanks to its adaptive learning approach.

Using data analysis, ACARYA distributes individual curriculums to each learner, giving users an arsenal of tools to identify the problem areas. It uses this data to constitute homogeneous groups, optimise time, & give exercises according to the levels of each learner. ACARYA analyses questions & identify all relevant segments of the course related to that question.

Skillogs’ innovating EdTech with international ambition

The EdTech start-up is launching its international bachelor’s in culinary arts & "FoodTech" and is looking for international partners. An EMEA Vocational and Culinary tour will take place in Autumn to launch this 100% online course, piloted by Artificial Intelligence and the best trainers and experts across EMEA countries.

 

A trusted partner for expansion

Skillogs’ platform is a respected vocational training tool in France. C3 Group, a major vocational training provider based across the Channel, has entrusted the start-up with all the digital content for their Associate Degree courses. It is currently used by over 350 students using 800 hours of lessons that are now 100% online. The company has seen greater student engagement as well as increased student satisfaction (+5%). Such is the success of this partnership that C3 will roll out the solution to 2,000 students at the start of the next school year.

Dedicated to upskilling, a key partner for businesses

ACARYA users can acquire over 13,485 skills. Whatever the curriculum, it is integrated into ACARYA’s e-learning platform, and the content is adapted to each student: from coding to sales, foreign languages to catering & more.

Vocational training & employee upskilling can be make-or-break for modern businesses, with a UK national survey showing that 70% of respondents indicated that job-related training and development opportunities influenced their decision to stay at their job. This figure was even higher among millennials, at 87%.[i] ACARYA has proved a success in France, where Skillogs’ customers range from vocational centres & universities to businesses.

The importance of upskilling employees for businesses is not to be overlooked and is shown to have a positive impact on the bottom line. According to a survey by the Association for Talent Development, companies that offer comprehensive training programs enjoy a 24% higher profit margin than those who spend less on training.[ii] A long-term research project commissioned by Middlesex University for Work Based Learning found that from a 4,300 workers sample, 74% felt that they weren’t achieving their full potential at work due to lack of development opportunities.[iii] What’s more, 40% of employees who don’t receive the necessary job training to become effective will leave their positions within the first year, entailing recruitment costs and loss of production.

Vocational training & upskilling, as offered by Skillogs, can be key contributing factors to a company’s success. A Skillsoft survey from the UK shows that roughly two-thirds of the workers stated that they felt workplace training should continue throughout their career, regardless of their seniority.[iv]
