Aricent and NASSCOM Foundation jointly announced the culmination of the first edition of ‘Arise by Aricent’ programme in the city on Thursday.

Over 900 students from tier 2 and tier 3 colleges in and around Hyderabad trained through the programme.

Delivered through MindMap LLP and governed by NASSCOM Foundation, this On-Campus programme equipped students from select colleges with skills tranging from basics like SDLC methodologies, to programming languages like JAVA, database management languages like SQL, API creation through Jdbc, project designing and software testing.

This programme also trained them in essentials such as oral and written communication, business etiquettes, problem solving, time management, customer orientation, interview skills and other soft skills required to enhance their employment opportunities. The candidates were later assessed on the NDSC- SSC NASSCOM Qualification Parameter – QP 501 and certified as a software developer, enhancing their chances of employment.

Felicitating the students, Jayesh Ranjan, Secretary, IT, Telangana Government, said, “For our country to reap the benefits of the new opportunities, the serious problem of skills gap needs to be addressed holistically. Right from identifying the skills gaps, to developing a robust curriculum, training the trainers, and maintaining a strong oversight over the quality of delivery of the training modules, each part of the chain requires a dedicated and professional approach.

I am glad Aricent Technologies in partnership with NASSCOM Foundation has considered it worthwhile to support a large batch of youth to be trained and open doors for their gainful placement. I do hope that other Software companies also emulate this successful model.”

NASSCOM Foundation’s CEO, Shrikant Sinha, said. “The key to exploit the true potential of our demographic dividend is to skill them and make them employable. As most of them are first generation graduates and belong to the underserved population, it is important to provide them with credible skilling opportunities.”
