iSTEP Mentors is the brainchild of Nikhil Malhotra, an experienced educator and entrepreneur with decades of experience counseling & mentoring students. Nikhil laid the foundation of iSTEP in 2019 with the sole aim of enabling & empowering Indian teachers to mentor their students. At iSTEP, Indian teachers & professors at both school & higher education levels get an opportunity to interact with their counterparts from reputed international universities, thereby enabling experience-sharing & knowledge-transfer. Over the past three years, iSTEP has organised more than 25 educative & informative seminars & webinars in collaboration with various reputed international universities. This has helped iSTEP member organisations as well as teachers to enhance their skill sets, bridge any gaps in knowledge & implement international best practices for their students in India.
Speaking about his team’s vision & mission at iSTEP Mentors, Nikhil Malhotra shares, “Our team at iSTEP Mentors is committed to empowering Indian educators & enabling them to act as the best guides to their students. Connecting Indian teachers with overseas subject matter experts from top universities helps us in improving awareness and knowledge of international education best practices amongst Indian teachers. Currently, there is very little or no collaboration between Indian and international academicians in shaping the future of Indian students. The iStep Mentors project aims to change this by empowering Indian teachers in such a way that they start providing genuine & useful guidance to their students regarding global education opportunities.”
iStep Mentors certifies participating teachers and enables them to mentor their students on global education options. The project has working relations & partnerships with 25+ reputed public universities from Australia and the UK. With its dedication to serving the Indian teacher-student community, iSTEP is fast becoming a trusted name & preferred go-to resource for all things international for Indian teachers and students.
