Chennai: SIP Academy India which trains children below 15 years celebrated its 15th anniversary here on Monday.

Speaking on the occasion, SIP Academy India founder and managing director Dinesh Victor said, "When you train children from a young age, they tend to grasp things quickly. When you teach them such skills, their ability to think and concentration improves."

The academy is known for its skill development programmes (SIP Abacus, SIP Amal, Global Art and MiKids) that targets children. These programmes are designed to improve a child's mental potential, reading skills and instill creativity.

The academy currently has over 1.70 lakh students across 300 cities in India and plans to expand to more cities in coming months. Since 2016, it has expanded to eight countries.

Sharing his thoughts on digital learning, Victor said, "When you have one-to-one interaction in a learning environment, students tend to learn better."

"These days, online videos teach you many things, yet students go to institutes as human interaction matters more while learning. Those who use learning through the internet must be extremely self-motivated."

A few alumni present during the celebration shared their thoughts about SIP Academy.

Former student and architect, Aprajithaa Vijayaraghavan, said, "At the academy's GlobalArt programme, I learned unique art skills which helped me to stand out from other candidates' portfolio when I showed mine to new clients. They liked it a lot because I had applied the skills I learnt at GlobalArt."
