Centum Learning, which is associated with the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, Under the Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalaya Yojana (DDU-GKY), launched a Multi-skill development centre at Jharsuguda that was inaugurated by Kishore Kumar Mohonty, Chairman of Western Odisha Development Council.
DDU-GKY focuses on addressing the occupational aspiration of rural youth to enhance their skill for employment. The scheme has targets to provide training nearly 210 candidates in three months.
The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship is playing a pivotal role to make Indian youth employable and work-ready. The Centre will offer three skilling role jobs – sewing machine operator, retail trainee associate and BPO.
On the inauguration CEO and MD of Centum learning Sanjeev Duggal said, “It is indeed a memorable day for Centum, as we mark the commencement of skilling youth in Odisha. Through this skilling initiative, we intend to drive sustainable transformation for youth of Odisha” later on he also added “States such as Odisha, which, incidentally records the highest unemployed graduates, need immediate attention via provision of better employment opportunities and hamessing youth power. Odisha enjoys a greater demographic dividend compared with other Indian states largely due to a higher percentage of youth population”.
