    BENGALURU: The National Association of Software and Services Companies (Nasscom), tech services industry body, has signed a pact with Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) to facilitate training and certification for their students.

    As part of its ongoing efforts to promote hiring across the industry and ensuring there is a well-equipped and industry ready workforce, Nasscom would showcase the conduct of Assessments and Certification on Qualification Packs (QP) and National Occupational Standards (NOS), said the industry body in a press release. The institute has signed up for 7500 licenses under NASSCOM’s FutureSkills platform along with 3 QP adoptions.

    The partnership will portray the employability skills of candidates from VIT and the Licensed Training Provider (LTP) by their adoption of the NOS.

    Nasscom said it would ensure timely completion of assessment and its certifications developed by NSDC through the Sector Skills Council for all candidates of VIT.

    The university will in turn avail the Qualification Pack courseware as guides for the student handbook and to develop training modules. The faculty will also have access to the Train-The-Trainer programme provided by SSC Nasscom and will be certified by them as well.

    “This is a prominent landmark in the journey of Nasscom’s Sector Skills Council and builds on our initiative to accelerate the skills base at the university level. The common objective we share is to showcase India as the global hub for talent development in emerging technologies as well as globally recognized process structures,” Amit Aggarwal, CEO, IT-ITES Sector Skills Council, Nasscom, was quoted saying.

    That’s a great news! My question is how many companies post job openings with nasscom certifications??? Or is there even 1 pvt company who post a job opening with nasscom qp/certificates as one of the key requirement? Well no . Industry needs people with real skills and certifications which are globally accepted . Like Microsoft, AWs,cisco , comptia etc. it’s high time educational institutions realise the truth and don’t just sign MOU’s for some publicity ahead of admission season.
