The National Award Authority conducted a series of ORB Next Generation workshops across the country. Ms Sanzeeda Ali, the Regional Manager - Asia Pacific, The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Foundation, delivered the workshops at New Delhi, Mumbai, Nagpur, Hyderabad and Kolkata.
The ORB Training workshops were designed to give the participants in-depth knowledge about the new digital tool, ORB Next Generation. During the training Sanzeeda showed each process step by step, starting with registering a unit, registering Award Leaders and ending with the participants' Sign-Off. During the sessions, Sanzeeda encouraged the participants to work and feel the new version of the tool through the web interface and mobile apps for Participants and Award Leaders in the test environment, before logging into the live environment. These workshops received a great response. The Mohali workshop was attended by 7 participants; the Dehra Dun workshop was attended by 6 participants; the Phagwara workshop saw 15 participants; the Jammu workshop had 22 participants; the Bangalore workshop was attended by 14 participants and the Chennai workshop was attended by 14 participants.
We hope that these digital tools workshops will help the Award Leaders and Volunteers take the Award to the next level in the new digital environment.
