Zupee Skilling Academy launches e-Skill training program

As the pandemic-hit world deliberates upon ways to reinvent youth skilling, in a
significant step, online gaming major Zupee has launched a special e-skill training program under its flagship initiative Zupee Skilling Academy (ZSA) on the occasion of World Youth Skills Day 2021.

The timing of the launch coincides with the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for expediting skilling, re-skilling and up-skilling of people to meet the huge demand due to fast-changing technology. Declaring skill development of the new generation a national need, he called skilling the foundation of Aatmnirbhar Bharat.

The second leg of the Zupee e-Skills program is being conducted in the Zupee training center at Jogeswari East area of Mumbai. The program being implemented in collaboration with the Ekta Foundation, will train 60 youth from underserved sections of society in courses such as Foundation skills and domain-specific areas that are aligned with the QP (qualification pack) and NOS (National Occupation Standards) as specified by the Sector Skill Council. Under this pilot program, ZSA will train 30
candidates each in retail sales associate and social media executive domains.

Speaking about the launch, Dr. Subi Chaturvedi, Chief Corporate and Public Affairs Officer, Zupee, said, “Zupee is working to empower the youth of the nation with latest tech, know-how and non-tech life skills to make sure that they meet the requirements of the jobs of the future. Zupee Skills Academy is puting in efforts to proactively develop and implement new-age, sustainable skill development programs via interactive training sessions by integrating digital solutions for scalability. This is one of our efforts directed at answering the Prime Minister’s call for skilling the youth for an Aatmanirbhar Bharat and helping the nation achieve the 5 trillion-dollar dream by 2025.

”She added “With the onset of an ever-changing, fast-paced and tech-focused work environment, it has become increasingly critical to empower, stimulate and action the youth of today to become the workforce of tomorrow. Enabling and empowering the youth, so that they become agents of positive change lies at the very heart of Zupee’s e-skill development initiatives. The e-skill program is aimed to enhance the competency & employability of youth members to ensure that the skills most in demand like critical thinking and analysis, problem solving, self-management, working with people, technology, its use for good and development are inculcated.“
