NSDC And Amity University Online Collaborate To Skill Young Learners
There will be an increase in job availability, but only for those with newer skills.
National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and Amity University Online today announced a strategic partnership that aims to train young people professionally, enabling them to progress in their careers. Amity University Online and NSDC will partner to offer professional skills courses on the latter’s eSkill India portal. The initiative is aligned with the objective of the Skill India Mission to empower youth with relevant skills corresponding with the needs of the industry.
Under the partnership, Amity’s online professional courses will be integrated with the eSkill India digital platform to provide a range of certification courses in Business Management, Marketing, Finance, Supply chain management, Power, Oil and Gas, Retail, etc.. From a technology-rich online infrastructure to a welcoming culture for fast-paced learning, the learners will witness the Amity experience that has enhanced the lives of over 225,000 professionals across the world. These certification courses are provided at a 50 per cent concession fee only to eSkillIndia users. The certification courses will be a huge value add for new as well as experienced professionals as they will augment the skills and performance in the corresponding fields of work especially in the light of the realignment requirements due to changes in technology across sectors.
As highlighted by the World Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report 2020, by 2025, 85 million jobs may be displaced by a shift in the division of labour between humans and machines, while 97 million new roles may emerge that are more adapted to the new division of labour between humans, machines, and algorithms. In short, there will be an increase in job availability, but only for those with newer skills. The courses provided by Amity University online demonstrates the set of cross-functional skills which are in demand across multiple emerging professions.
