The programme is being offered in two formats: The Extended 20- weeks course; and the Short 4 to 8 weeks course · These are being offered twice a year- The Extended one in July and December; and the Short one in May-July and December-January
With a prime focus on the usage of technology tools, the three areas of internship to be covered this year and the next year are: Game design and development (Extended); Data Analytics for students (Short); and Using AI tools that enrich learning (Short)
In a significant initiative aimed at benefiting school students, Zamit, a leading AI-enabled one-stop solution provider for the school ecosystem, has announced a one-of-its-kind internship programme for youngsters. For this year and the next year, the focus of the programme would be on the usage of technology tools and assets, an exercise that would help students in making a smooth transition to the still-evolving tech-driven learning and workplace landscape as well as gain an enriching learning experience.
Essentially, the programme has been designed to equip and prepare school students from grades 7 to 11 with practical future-ready skills. Under this, Zamit offers two kinds of internship programmes: The first is an Extended 20-week programme for secondary school students and would be conducted twice every academic year in July and December. And the second is a Short 4 to 8 weeks programme for students in grades 7 to 11, which again would be held twice every academic year, namely, in May-July and December-January.
The three areas of internship that are going to be covered this year and the next year are Game design and development; Data Analytics for students; and Using AI tools that enrich learning. While the first would be offered under the Extended programme, the latter two would be conducted under the Short programme.
Since the internship is online, it allows students the flexibility of timing to complete their programme within the stipulated time frame. Importantly, students that successfully complete the Zamit Internship shall receive certification from QAI, UK. QAI is the UK's leading private international awarding body that offers qualifications, assessments, and certifications with a focus on success in the Fourth Industrial Age.
Also, upon completion of the programme, a student’s name, as well as the name of his/her school, will be promoted on Zamit’s digital marketing platforms & feeds, wherever possible. Zamit already has an ongoing internship programme on Game design and development under the Extended format wherein the games designed by students would be uploaded on Zamit’s online platforms and promoted among Zamit product and service users. As the first phase is already underway, five Interns selected out of over 200 applications are working on their guided projects.
“Traditionally, the idea of the internship has mostly been conceived in terms of helping out and preparing older college-going students, and even projects were designed keeping in mind the needs and interests of only the senior students. For the longest time, that school students as young as those in grade seven could also make good use of a well-designed and time-relevant internship programme was hardly a thought that entered the school administration's, teachers, or even parents’ minds.
However, with the new-age technology explosion increasingly witnessing the entry of youngsters into real-life economic activity and related workplaces, it is no more an anomaly to see a surge in demand for internships for even secondary school children, and of course those senior to them. And with a rising number of vocational as well as application-based courses, the need for an internship for the younger lot has only grown stronger,” said Mr. Aarul Malaviya, Founder and Director of Zamit.
“Indeed, technology has shrunk the temporal distance between children’s school environment and work environment. Although it would differ from industry to industry, the time period that students take to enter the workplace after completing their school education today has generally tended to come down over the years. Also, the sheer tech-driven nature of the upcoming career and work environments is such that the usage of technology and gadgets must become an everyday habit for students.
So, mindful of the ever-increasing relevance of subjects such as game design, data analytics, and AI not only from the standpoint of gaining knowledge but also in terms of the prospects for young students’ longer-term career trajectory, we have selected these subjects for now. With time, we intend to introduce more such subjects and modules for our internship programme,” added Mr. Malaviya.
Students may directly apply for the Zamit Internship on the website or the Zamit app. Students from grades 7 to 11 may apply for the upcoming Internships:
1. Data Analytics for students (Short): Starts Dec 2023
2. Using AI tools that enrich learning (Short): Starts Dec 2023
3. Game Design & Development (Extended): 2nd batch starts Dec 2023

When you borrow a dump truck loan, you’ll receive a lump sum upfront, which you can use to purchase the vehicle. After receiving your loan, you’ll start paying it back in monthly installments.
Along with paying back the principal amount you borrowed, you’ll also have to pay interest and any associated fees. The higher your interest rate, the more interest charges you’ll pay over the life of your loan.
The Forbes Advisor business loan calculator can help you estimate your monthly payments and long-term costs on a dump truck loan before you borrow. Some lenders might also require you to make a down payment upfront.
The rates and terms you receive on a dump truck loan will vary by lender and depend on a variety of factors, including your credit, business finances and the truck itself. Since the dump truck secures your loan, it may come with longer terms, higher amounts and lower interest rates than you’d see on an unsecured loan.
Dump truck loans typically offer up to $500,000, which should cover the purchase price of your truck. You may have a choice of repayment terms, which could range between two and six years.
A shorter term will get you out of debt faster and save you money on interest, but it will also come with higher monthly payments. A longer term, on the other hand, can make your monthly payments more affordable but will lead to higher interest charges over time.
