Freshworks Software Academy (FWSA) is a social impact (CSR - Corporate Social Responsibility) initiative powered by Freshworks India Private limited for underprivileged students from low-income families who are unable to afford conventional college education but have the right motivation, aptitude to learn software skills & have a strong desire to start their career in technology.
This is a hybrid (offline and online) skilling programme covering 2 tracks:
By training the students in the above tracks, the program aims to mould students into well-rounded professionals ready to take up tech jobs in the IT industry both within Freshworks & other companies willing to provide opportunities for these students.
Before using iMocha, Freshworks conducted manual assessments at their office. However, with the onset of the pandemic and the geographically diverse location of the students, this was no longer possible. Additionally, it was time-consuming as well. Freshworks was looking for a remote-first assessment solution with the right mix of Aptitude and English assessments.
After evaluating multiple options, Freshworks selected iMocha as their assessment partner. Freshworks were impressed with the flexibility of the platform to create bilingual assessments in English and Tamil. Our AI-enabled proctoring measures ensured 100% integrity of assessments. Freshworks created FSAT-based on Math, Logical Reasoning & Basic Communication.
Freshworks initiated the drive online and received 955 simultaneous test takers. The assessments were administered seamlessly and currently, Freshworks is in the process of selecting the top 50 students for the Freshworks Software Academy (FWSA). iMocha’s assessments will also be used to assess the knowledge of the selected students after each module is completed in their training programme.
