DU students complete skill development courses under NSDC

As part of a joint ‘Short Term Skill Development’ programme run by Delhi University and National Skill Development Corporation for the Under Graduates, the students in the BFSI course in Dayal Singh College completed their course as part of the pilot program and 70% of them got placed in leading financial institutions like Deloitte Consulting, HDFC Bank, Angel Brokers and Mudra Financial Services at a salary in the range of INR 1.8 L to 2.5 Lakhs.

The curriculum offered covered various topics in basics of banking, banking products, terminology, operations and processes. This was a holistic programme covering not only theory and practical sessions but also field visits and project work, which enabled the students to get sufficient hands on training and practical exposure based on National Occupational Standards. Assessment and certification was conducted by Sector Skill Council and 35 students were certified with flying colors.

Commenting on the partnership, Dilip Chenoy, National Skill Development Corporation said “We are happy to see the results of the pilot project with Dayal Singh College and are planning to replicate the same across all the colleges under Delhi University starting this academic session. The University of Delhi is one of the premier universities in the country known for its standards of education and research. NSDC is pleased and honored to partner with DU in this initiative.

This is a big opportunity for students who wish to supplement their theoretical knowledge with practical hands-on training that will improve their employability in the increasingly competitive job market in the country and transform their lives.”
This MoU was signed in November last year between National Skill Development Corporation & Delhi University. The objective of the MoU is to improve the employment potential of the students of the University of Delhi with systematic training, certificates of competency, and placement assistance.

The various programmesoffered  arealigned to Qualification Packs (QP) and National Occupational Standards (NOS) developed by NSDC through Sector Skill Councils, so as to bridge the gap of industry requirement for suitable jobs. The assessment and certification will be conducted by respective sector skill councils. According to MoU up to 6 sectors per college/institution will be introduced initially. These sectors are – IT/ITES, BFSI, Telecom, Healthcare, Automotive and Media & Entertainment

DU will further create awareness among the students to promote and encourage enrolment in skill based courses. For this, it will share information on its website, mass e-mailing students and actively promote the engagement on other social media platforms, as and when required. As next steps, NSDC will be allocating training partners to the colleges to commence the training from August, 2015 onwards. National Collegiate Women Education Board – under DU has already started the programme for girls of NCWEB.
