Vocational training program with association of Vedanta Foundation
Despite the fact that India is a fast developing economy, far more needs to be done to engender more employment opportunities for the majority of Indians, to enable them to participate in the benefits of growth and to contribute to that growth. Computer literacy has become almost a mandatory skill in the 21 century to flourish in the job market.
Despite phenomenal capabilities, India faces a serious problem when it comes to computer literacy among the masses. The huge unmet need of spreading computer literacy especially among the marginalized population inspired us to take the responsibility of empowering the masses with the most critical skill of the century as a part of our social development priority.
We set up our first vocational training center in the year 1992 aptly named “Shiksha” to pilot the targeted development goal. The encouraging results of the center pass outs provided us the required impetus to progressively scale up the presence of similar vocational training centers across the country.
The objective of the vocational training center is to enable individuals nationwide to achieve greater success by providing required basic computer knowledge & skills making them employable in the mainstream. The centers have been setup with the larger objective of developing employable skills especially among the marginalized population through vocational training essentially on basic computer skills. We have also weaved in the soft skills training in our computer course curriculum to enhance the employ ability quotient of our students.
To attain the desired mass development impact, we have partnered with like minded socially inclined associations across the country. Governments, civil society, communities and corporate among others represent our nationwide social development partners facilitating an enduring social development.
To ensure that the centers attract and benefit masses, our vocational programs are offered at nominal fees supplemented by required employable skills facilitating mainstream employment.
Our centers are equipped with the essential infrastructure including a team of dedicated technically skilled trainers forming a part of our standard delivery models. The students are not only trained on technical skills but with required soft skills which are vital for enhancing their overall employ ability quotient.
