Keywords:NASSCOM  skills gap  curricula  IEEE Computer Society 

IT-ITeS Sector Skills Council NASSCOM (SSC NASSCOM), has certified the alignment of curricula, developed by IEEE Computer Society, targeting five industry identified job roles/qualification packs (QP). IEEE Computer Society used the approved curricula as the basis to create its own courseware, to effectively decrease the skills gap for Indian technology workers who just started in their careers.

IEEE Computer Society has developed its own courseware and training material in pursuance of the curricula aligned to the QPs concerned, to provide the necessary training for engineers with zero-to-two years experience. SSC NASSCOM's Curriculum Alignment Certification to IEEE is for NSQF Level 7 (National Skills Qualification Framework) QPs i.e. SSC/Q4202-Engineer Trainee, SSC/Q0501-Software Developer, SSC/Q4601-Software Engineer, SSC/Q6702-Software Developer and SSC/Q0507-Engineer Trainee.

The curricula alignment aims to develop a skills-ready technology workforce

Sandhya Chintala, VP, NASSCOM and executive director, SSC NASCOM said that IT-ITeS SSC NASSCOM aims to drive, scale and sustain a powerful skill development initiative to create a skills-ready workforce for the future of this industry.

The training will be provided by IEEE Computer Society trained and approved Registered Education Providers (REPs) based throughout India. Those completing the courses can aim to be assessed and certified as competent in the particular QP/job role, by SSC NASSCOM, the authorised QP standard setting and certifying body under NSDC, GOI.

On the occasion Sandhya Chintala, VP, NASSCOM and executive director, SSC NASCOM said "IT-ITeS Sector Skills Council NASSCOM (SSC NASSCOM) aims to drive, scale and sustain a powerful skill development initiative to create a skills ready workforce for the future of this industry. I congratulate global organisations such as IEEE, who aim to prepare students in India, aligned to industry validated qualification packs (QPs), which is an important step in providing the quality education and training that India needs to continue in its anticipated growth trajectory. In this context SSC NASSCOM certifications w.r.t. Qualification Packs will provide our students the currency for global mobility."

"We are very pleased to partner with the SSC NASSCOM to provide our global and time-tested education and training resources in furtherance of India's impressive campaign to raise education and training levels to create a new generation of highly skilled workers," said Angela Burgess, IEEE Computer Society executive director. "We look forward to contributing to this goal however we can."
