apna is a jobs and professional networking product for the rising working class - it uniquely has a jobs marketplace combined with the ability for users to discover, connect and network with similar professionals.
One of the skills that is required for most jobs in this space is the ability to speak English (proficiency level varies depending on the job type) and many times this is a skill that users struggle with. How would you leverage apna's professional networking products (Groups, Connect, 1-1) to "help users learn english that is required for their current or aspirational job and deliver both learning and job outcomes for them"?
The approach + solution should ensure that:
1. users achieve learning and job outcomes
2. apna is able to drive engagement + user retention on networking products
3. any other benefits for stakeholders, if possible
Important outcomes to consider:
Learning outcome = did they actually learn the english skill needed;
Jobs outcome = did they get the "better" job based on the acquired skill
