NSDC ramps up skill training initiatives, inks pact with Captiveway India Solutions


National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) has said that it has signed an agreement with Captiveway India Solutions to create a portal which will house NSDC-affiliated learning and training centres with their offered skills training courses.

"This partnership will certainly give a push to the skill development landscape in India. It will benefit companies involved in the skill training space," NSDC Managing Director and CEO Dilip Chenoy said in a press release.

"It will assist in increasing their business volume, make them a part of an active skill ecosystem and will also give them international exposure. This platform will see training organisations expand their infrastructure and open more training centres," Chenoy said.

According to PTI, under this Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), NSDC will undertake to create a comprehensive and cohesive skill ecosystem for MNCs looking at trained manpower to support their business requirements.

Captiveway's CEO Vijaya Koumar said, "We are all excited to be partnering with NSDC towards increasing India's skilled workers. We are looking at around a million people getting skilled in the next five years from this project."

"We hope this will offer new and innovative opportunities for our training partners to collaborate with global organisations towards best practices, curriculum and scale up the efforts of skill development in the country," Koumar added.
