  • Skilling India is akin to evangelising: Sanjeev Duggal, Centum Learning | The Financial Express
    their age and location and finally mapped to their nearest enrolment centres This exercise was quite successful In less than a week of launch as many as 3 87 408 candidates were profiled and over 40 000 candidates across 38 districts in Bihar were enrolled under various skilling programmes We take help from Gram Panchayats and other local governing bodies to spread awareness about these mobilisation drives Where do you train the untrained Infrastructure is neither a challenge nor a constraint We ve tied up with CBSE and AICTE to offer vocational training in schools and colleges We use existing infrastructure like AICTE approved colleges and private ITIs rented commercial space etc which comply with government regulations instead of setting up new centres Most of these centres are already equipped with computers and laboratories to enable smoother implementation of project deliverables In case of certain hostel based training centres Centum provides transportation facilities from the hostel to the training centre Given the government s emphasis on skilling we are even looking at utilising public spaces like railway stations in the future What steps are needed to change the perception that skills training is only for those who are not good in academics Unlike the West where a PhD can pursue the vocation of a cab driver and is considered a respected member of society in India a father s heart will skip a beat if his daughter announces her interest to marry anybody less than an engineer or a doctor But things are slowly changing and there are discussions in the corridors of power about skilling bridging the demographic divide providing employability skills encouraging rural participation to make the skill movement mainstream Well crafted and strategic advertising campaigns are being floated to change the poor country cousin image of a skills based career A social ecosystem that respects those skilled in vocational education a support system that addresses some of the basic necessities of life a network to share and live with a decent working atmosphere all these will go a long way in changing the mindset of people towards skilling Have you been able to gainfully transform the lives of women in smaller towns We provide training to vulnerable youth in the 18 35 age group mainly from rural areas scheduled castes and tribes backward communities and women Our ambition is to reach a larger pool of trainees to offer exhaustive skilling opportunities as we believe only scale can bring inclusivity Our target is to reach more women candidates and if necessary provide exclusive female only hostel facilities employ female instructors and wardens to ensure safety and comfort of female candidates Further impetus to attract female trainees is done by counselling parents and providing references from past women trainees who belong to the same location as potential candidates and who are employed thus contributing to their family income Does your skilling model take care of placements The approach towards skill building consists of five steps Employment Generation Mobilisation Skill
