AISECT partners with Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation for free of cost skills training of 270 backward class category candidates

Training to be provided for 3 job roles across 7 locations in Andhra Pradesh

AISECT, which is India’s leading social enterprise working in the area of skill development, has partnered with the Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation (APSSDC) and Government of Andhra Pradesh’s Department of Skill Development, Entrepreneurship and Innovation for implementation of the Sector Specific Employment & Placement Linked Training Program for backward class category candidates in 7 major districts of the State. Under this partnership, 270 candidates will be trained in 3 specific job roles, namely CRM Domestic Voice, Accounts Executive (Recording & Reporting) and Accounts Executive (Payroll).

The training will be held in Guntur, Penukonda, Gutti, Cudapa, Penumur, Chittor and Nandyala districts of Andhra Pradesh and will be free of cost for the candidates. In order to offer quality training, there will be a maximum of 30 candidates in each batch. The candidates taking part in the program will also receive a training kit, which would include a bag, training module, pen and notepad. Depending on the job role, candidates will have to undergo 100 to 400 hours of training over a period of 1 to 3 months. After the completion of the program, the candidates will be assessed through the Sector Skill Councils of India.

AISECT’s Director Mr. Siddharth Chaturvedi says, “Skills and knowledge are the basic essence of a flourishing economy. Unfortunately, the literacy rate in India is just 74.04%, which has led to an unemployment rate of3.52%. In order to improve these statistics, it is important for the Government and the training providers to reach out to people in the remotest corners of the country and from every section of the society and introduce them to skills training and the benefits it provides. Through this partnership with APSSDC, we are aiming to not just provide skills training to a specific target group in Andhra Pradesh but also open up a number of employment options for them.”

The minimum educational qualifications required for a student to be eligible for the program include 10th Class for CRM Domestic Voice job role and Graduation in Commerce or Allied Subjects or a Diploma in Commercial Practice for Accounts Executive (Payroll) and Accounts Executive(Recording, Reporting) job roles.

As APSSDC’s Training Partner for this program, AISECT will be responsible for the placement of a minimum of 70% of the trained candidates after successful completion of the program. To achieve this target, the organization plans to organize Rojgar Melas and connect the trained youth with potential employers.

This is not the first time that AISECT is conducting a skill development program in Andhra Pradesh. The Bhopal-headquartered organization, which has been empowering semi-urban and rural parts of India since the last 33 years through quality ICT and skills based education and services, has till date provided skills training to over 500 people in Andhra Pradesh through more than 20 AISECT Centres spread across the State. In partnership with APSSDC, AISECT is implementing various training programs for General, OBC and SC candidates. The organization is also providing vocational education in 38 schools Andhra Pradesh. AISECT recently allotted a new target of 240 candidates under PMKVY 2.0 in Andhra Pradesh.
