Indian Institute of Job Training (IIJT), India's largest staffing solutions company today launched VSAT facility at the IIJT Chembur centre to enable last mile access to employability enhancement training.
The VSAT infrastructure will enable IIJT to give quality career skills training to all candidates, even those in more remote locations who may have been limited by lack of access to quality faculty, infrastructure and exposure to industry professionals.
IIJT's VSAT facility is being launched with a series of Career Seminars by real-life professionals from across various industries for the benefit job seekers and students. This is based on the research that many students make their career decisions without much research, role models or active discussion. With 93% of employment in the informal sector, these seminars create a unique opportunity for interaction with formal sector professionals for students across the country. The seminars are open to the general public, apart from IIJT students. Part biographical, part professional and part industry, these seminars will have professionals talking about their personal career journey and will give insights to students on selecting and enabling their careers in those industries.
Babul SoumenSaha, Divisional Head IIJT west stated that the dearth of having quality and well trained faculty across the country particularly for advanced modules was one of the reasons for investing into satellite technology. He also added “A minimum of 25% of all our career courses will be taught from the studio. The Career Seminars every Saturday will be open to public and apart from the normal classes, one of the most effective satellite interventions will be 'Train-the-trainer' programs for our range of programs across finance, accounting, sales, marketing, hardware/networking, and English.”
