Project Description

For the next couple of decades, India is going to have a large supply of young people who will be ready to join the workforce and participate in the economic development.

Providing livelihood to underprivileged youth is essential to ensure their effective participation in the growth of the country. As a step in this direction, ICICI Foundation launched a nationwide skill development initiative, ICICI Academy for Skills (ICICI Academy), in October 2013 to impart vocational training to the youth. 

Approach

Since its inception, ICICI Academy has launched 21 centres across India. This includes centres at Jaipur, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Pune, Coimbatore, Narsobawadi, Patna and Guwahati. ICICI Academy has also set up centres at Durg and Indore under the public-private partnership (PPP) model with the Governments of Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh, respectively, to provide vocational training to underprivileged youth in these states.

Further, additional centres offering courses exclusively for women candidates in Retail Sales and Office Administration have been set up at Delhi, Kochi, Mysuru, Trichy, Vijayawada, Lucknow, Zirakpur, Nagpur, Bhubaneswar and Kolkata. The Academy currently offers training to 25,000 youth per year in skills like Electrical & Home Appliance Repair, Refrigeration & AC Repair, Pumps & Motor Repair, Central Air Conditioning, Selling Skills, Office Administration, Web Designing, Retail Café Operations, Paint Application Techniques, Tractor Mechanic, and Lab Assistant at Diagnostic Centres, Two & Three Wheeler Service Technician and Retail Sales.
