English is a widely used and globally accepted language. Be it government job or a job in corporate sector, knowledge of English language holds paramount importance. Understanding the importance of English, Shri Narendra Modi launched a novel initiative to help people learn the language; the initiative which is called SCOPE (Society for Creation of Opportunity through Proficiency in English). Through SCOPE, the state government aims at building English language proficiency among youth of Gujarat, thereby, enabling them to seek employment opportunities from a wider canvas.

Since its launch in 2007, SCOPE has trained around 3, 00, 000 learners of different age groups. Further, the initiative aims at training 5, 00, 000 youths in business English.  SCOPE is spread wide in the entire state with its learning centers aiding the youth in the remotest areas of the Gujarat, including the prisoners in jails. The program helps the learners to develop their skills in listening, speaking, reading and grammar.

Education and Skill development have always remained among the top priorities for Shri Modi. This can be visualized in the reduced number of school dropout rates through Kanya Kelavani and Shala Praveshotsav, and the rising numbers of Skill development initiatives in the state like eMPOWER, iCREATE, ITIs etc.

Do read an experience of a person who says SCOPE has touched his life in a great way.

"During my two and a half years association with SCOPE(TMPL), I came into contact with many students and parents. One thing was common amongst all, even in physically challenged students. I would always feel the vibe they are saying “Do not stop me, there is too much SCOPE”. I feel immensely happy that through SCOPE, I became instrumental in fulfilling the desires of aspirants."
