The free skills-building program will help create employment opportunities for those facing an uncertain future due to the epidemic.
Viginet Systems’ project ‘Improvement for India’ was unveiled last year during the epidemic, when the job market was hit hard, especially for young people from low-income backgrounds. With limited access to training, a blank digital segmentation disrupting education and limited employment opportunities, many young people between the ages of 18 and 24 face an uncertain future.
Alok Bansal, MD of Visionet Systems India and Global Head of BFSI Business, has launched a free initiative called ‘Improvement for India’, aimed at plugging the skills gaps in college curriculum to prepare young people for a future where digital transformation is artificial. Intelligence, machine learning, cryptocurrency, NLP (natural language processing) and many more are defining multiple industries.
Last year, Vicinet announced plans to train about 100,000 graduates over the next five years for employment in their information technology and BPM sectors, and launched a 45-day program for 500 young professionals. By April 2021, more than 600 young people had received free training and 90 percent of them had been exploited in the corporate stream.
The program is free. Most of the recruitment has been done across Mumbai and Bangalore.
The skills program is open to graduates and graduates from any stream and the 45 to 60 day training will be a combination of classroom and online modules.
