Pune : Millionlights University, a UK based EDtech company and a Microsoft Solutions partner, launched its India chapter by announcing its innovative Career Assistance Program (MCAP). MCAP is a focused upskilling program which aims to “manufacture” cohorts trained in latest in-demand Microsoft and software development skills. Miilionlights have been successfully organising bootcamps in UK since 2019
MCAP is an 8-week online course which will train freshers and graduates with latest software development and in-demand IT skills. While its first batch is Microsoft Cloud Engineering course, in the future the company plans to include courses in Devops, JAVA, .NET, Data Science, Data Analytics, etc. The intensive course delivered on a cloud platform will be bridging the much-spoken gap between country’s educated and employable population. MCAP’s role doesn’t just end at training but will also assist learners in bagging an assured placement with its partner companies.
“It has been estimated that by 2030, 50 million people will be required for the technical jobs, few jobs which don’t even exist today but will be in demand then. Appropriate and latest skills shortage is impacting approx. 40% of the businesses today. Millionlights’ MCAP is a learner centric model that aims at ensuring that this demand and shortage gets addressed. MCAP will assist candidates in getting industry skills and landing themselves a lucrative job via Millionlights,” said Mr. Shwetank Updhayaya India CEO, Millionlights.
Promoting women learners
In its first batch of MCAP, company has decided to award Educational Scholarships to women learners. “In line with government’s efforts, we at Millionlights have decided to offer scholarships to women learners in our first batch by waiving off 85% of their fees.” added Shwetank.
The overall learning process is a mix of hardcore technical skills and communication skills. Experienced industry professionals are handpicked to introduce and familiarise candidates with technical knowledge in an interactive way. The course will provide candidates access to faculty lectures, quizzes & assignments, regular doubt clearing Q&A sessions, application projects and live online teaching. Moderated discussion sessions will be organised regularly to provide candidates an opportunity to improve on their communication skills and get a firm foot-hold on the concepts learnt.
“We have been assisting talent in UK and improving their employability; we look forward to doing so for Indian youngsters too. What makes us special is our experience and competitive fees which has to be paid only once a learner lands himself/ herself a desired job. It is our attempt at making the learning process a motivation and not a burden,” added Shwetank.
The first batch that starts from August 12, 2021 will be Microsoft Cloud Engineering MCAP. It will be teaching cohorts in AZ-900: Microsoft Azure Fundamentals and AZ 104 – Microsoft Azure Administrator.
Eligible candidates can apply to the first batch of MCAP by writing an online exam, available at https://www.millionlights.university/mcap-test . A merit-list of the qualified candidates will be announced who can then attend the dynamic and intensive 8-week online training.
After the successful completion of the course, the cohorts are eligible for the recruitment process with the partner recruiter companies. Only upon successful placement of the candidate, the course fee has to be paid.
