Bangalore: Keenfinity Solutions launches a first of a kind 2-year International Vocational Program in Quebec (Canada) which also qualifies for a 3-year post-graduation work permit in the field of Healthcare, Hospitality, Skilled Trade and Business Accounting. It is also one of the first consultants to partner with a public educational institution in Canada for such a youth skill development program. The main objective of this initiative is to bridge the gap between students passing out and they being employable. As we all know, the demand for job-specific skills has been growing around the world. All Industries and corporations around the world believe that the quality and supply of skilled labour is a major roadblock to their growth. Firms that are digitally transforming themselves around the world are also demanding that new hires have “job specific” skills along with advanced, flexible and fungible technical and soft skills.
The Indian education system is fascinating when it has all decision-makers’ eyeballs and a thorough revamping. With India emerging as one of the world leaders and poised to make its presence in Global Economic, cultural, climate, and human resource forums, there needs to be concrete pathway in Education and human resource management to harness its demographic dividend as a young nation.
With a large workforce that can provide skilled human resources both in the domestic market and globally. This is only possible if India has a well thought out strategy to provide innovative skill development to its youngsters just out of school which opens its doors for Overseas studies and international skill development.
Given the increase in exploitation of students aspiring to study overseas, the long list of false promises, fake ads etc, Keenfinity Solutions plans to carve a very unique and different approach to counselling students. The partner provides a clear, measurable, time bound success career path right at the time of registrations. The partner has many more concrete adequate measures to ensure there is transparency, accountability, and a clear success path defined for all those programs.
On the current scenario, Mr. Prithipal Singh, MD of Keenfinity solutions said, “Today young and eligible educated aspirant of India are often hired with a pay package much lower than others as they lack in job specific employable skills. New areas of skills are emerging as we move away from conventional paths to other work areas with prospects of scalability and interoperability to leverage the exponential growth in market and focus on growing demand for the skilled global labour force. We need to focus on training programs based on industry demands not only in India but globally.”
“With India emerging as the youngest country in 2020 with an average age of 29 years and poised to provide nearly 28% of world’s workforce, there is an opportunity for Indian youth to fill the nation’s gap by ageing population or lack of skilled labor and emerging as a significant player in world business. The continuous supply of qualified people into the workforce globally is the way forward for India. ”
Dr. Manjula Raman, a Veteran Academician and an Education Evangelist, said that “Education needs to be more flexible, lifelong and focus on learning to learn problem-solving, collaborative skills and competitive edge in a globalized service economy. There need to be agencies that can equip the students with different courses available and counsellors to help the students chart out a career goal. These should be established and made available to enlarge the scope and scale of resources and opportunities. Given the extent of the employability challenge, India must find more innovative partners for skilling, upskilling and reskilling its rising youth population.”
She further adds, “The global competition and global financial crisis will certainly put additional pressure on our education program. Hence the radically new approach to learning is the key. Unfortunately, many existing educational systems are not equipped to face these challenges. The current education system is not provided to meet this challenge with learning models, neither fitting people’s diversity of talent and attitude nor catering to employers’ demands.”
