All India Council of Technical Education, under which more than 10,300 technical institutions & about 80 Lac students are regulated, signed an MOU with Youth4work.com that has over 21 Lac Youth across India tested and profiled for their skills. The aim of the MOU is to get all students under AICTE to get access to Youth4work’s Skill based test online for Building their skill profiles and get Internship & Job opportunities.
All AICTE approved institutes & students studying in 1st years to Final year will benefit from this collaboration. Dr. Anil Sahasrabudhe, Chairman of AICTE says, “The need of imparting right skills for institutes and finding the right person with skills for employers is one of the key challenges that India faces in this era. www.Youth4work.com platform with its unique way of skill based testing & profiling technology for youth is a powerful way to address this need.”
Rachit Jain, CEO of Youth4worksays, “Being an engineer myself, I really believe that there is no dearth of Skills in Indian Institutes, The challenge for every student in India is to identify his/her own talent and showcase it in front of the world. India has 16 Lac technical students graduating every year, which is more than population of most cities across the world. The problem that companies are facing today is to find the right person for the right job with the right skillset and that’s what Youth4work is trying to doby showcasing the uniqueness and skills in front of employers.”
“We believe that every person is unique and employable. Our technology and assessments allows students to give any of the 500+ skill test that we have online and get ranked. More than 20 Lac youth globally have built their profile and over 12,000 employers use our platform. With this tie-up we aim to profile 10 Million Youth across India in the next 18 months.”
With governments initiative like Digital India, Start-up India and Skill India and the focus of AICTE on Providing Skill based outcomes and trying to improve quality of education, this is an interesting development which has powerful use of tech that allow Millions of Youth in India to be publically profiled, searchable & contactable for their skills. It provides a platform to the students across the nation even from remote towns to showcase themselves. Hopefully we will see extensive participation from all institutes under AICTE in this.
