In a significant development for the Indian skill ecosystem, industry and electronic sector, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between Electronics Sector Skill Council of India (ESSCI) and Veteran India (Trust) for ‘cooperation in quality training, assessment and validate the training facility infrastructure as per defined norms.’ ESSCI will support Veteran India in development of a training eco system for imparting skill under CSR initiatives.
The MoU was signed by Dr Abhilasha Gaur, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of ESSCI and Binay Kumar Mishra, President, Veteran India (Trust) in New Delhi at ESSCI Office. Senior officials of both organisations were also present on the occasion. Objective of the MoU is to build a relationship for imparting skills development to the marginalised and needy people of the society under the CSR programme implemented by Veterans India.
The MoU includes taking up project development, capacity building, adequate laboratory infrastructure and tools with a clean environment and teaching aids as required for job roles.
After a blended meeting for MoU, Dr Abhilasha Gaur, COO of ESSCI called a milestone agreement between two premium-leading organisations for the skill ecosystem. Further on quality of skill training, she said that companies of both private and public sector have adequate scope to contribute and make impact through their CSR programme. As it is obvious that industries have a crucial role in impelling lasting economic development of the country, investment by them in skilling the workforce makes a strong business case. This investment creates a win-win situation for industries by developing a vibrant and skilled labour market and serving their social responsibility purpose as well. Also, from the ethical point of view, as businesses use the human resource of the country it is expected from them that they develop the capacity of that resource in a sustainable manner.
ESSCI is consistently collaborating with the industry and academia to skill and upskill and leverage India’s demographic dividend to drive growth and enhance employability of the large number of youths.
