Proposed Project Description

With a successful industry-aligned skills training program in place, Anudip understands the ground reality and has been successful in coaching its’ youth aspirants over the last 10 years to achieve a consistent 70 % placement in the digital jobs arena. 


This intervention program has been developed keeping in mind the additional requirement of inclusive human development in urban cities like West Bengal, Karnataka, Tamilnadu and its adjacent areas.


Anudip proposes to set up a skill development centre that will impart training in the industry-aligned curriculum in digital services. The centre will cater to youth from impoverished backgrounds; most of them would either be school/college dropouts or have completed schooling with very little or no livelihood /employable skills. The focus will be given to identifying and enrolling women at our centres who are more vulnerable to social evils like crime, drugs, early marriage, and trafficking, domestic abuse and hence limited by choices.


Anudip’s market-aligned skills training program will follow a technology-driven, blended learning methodology that has evolved based on employer and student feedback, team evaluations, and impact studies conducted externally and internally. Anudip continuously aligns with changing job markets, digital trends, employer demand, and the state of the training technology worldwide. Compelling courseware, delivered through an online platform, will be offered based upon skill needs that are determined through high-level relationships with employers. Anudip will utilize its multimedia and game-based learning programs which allows them to retain the learnings more effectively. Many of these programs pave the way for niche careers in technology and one can progress from entry-level roles upward, thereby creating the difference. Digitized multimedia content in video, audio, presentation, and game formats will be used which will enable students to be attracted to and enjoy their classroom experience. Anudip uses a technology platform that keeps a record of entire lifecycle management of its trainees. Online assessments will be conducted post-successful training completion and the youth will be facilitated with appropriate job roles, thus achieving a minimum 70% placement ratio.


Geography:

In the current proposition, Anudip will institutionalize a skill development centre South 24 Pargana’s -West Bengal, Bangalore -Karnataka & Chennai-Tamilnadu. Each centre will cater to 250 youth learner for 1st year building their capacity, enhancing skills and ensuring better placement opportunities.

 

The project would be for an initial period of 12 months (inclusive of 2 months pre-project commencement work and 8 months for training delivery). Based on performance will extend to 2 years.


Project Objective: 
  • Anudip will mobilize youth from socially and economically backward communities into the program by spreading awareness, running campaigns and effective counselling so that they are encouraged to step out of the generational poverty trap and shielded from social evils like trafficking, insurgency, early marriages, generational financial debts etc.
  • Enhance technical skills and knowledge of 750 youth in the digital services sector in a period of one year in 3 locations.
  • Enable digital livelihoods for at least 70% of the students (525 students) impacting their economic and social well-being in a period of one year
  • Bridge demand and supply gap in these skills in the 3 proposed locations

Target Beneficiary Profile:

Underserved communities including socially and economically marginalized groups, college drop-outs and unemployed graduates in the age groups of 18-25 years. We will seek a good representation of women candidates for courses such as web design and development.
This intervention program has been developed keeping in mind the additional requirement of inclusive human development in urban cities like West Bengal, Karnataka, Tamilnadu and its adjacent areas.
