This partnership enables empowered workforce
Skill-based education is essential to acquire practical skills along with academic degrees. This can be achieved by Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) which will make them job-ready and positively impacting the economy in the long-run. This unique partnership will assist Avanse Financial Services to create an empowered workforce in India with the help of the institutions affiliated with NSDC through a result-oriented framework.
Amit Gainda, MD and CEO, Avanse Financial Services
“Skill development is extremely crucial as it can contribute to structural transformation and economic growth by enhancing employability and labour productivity. India is one of the youngest countries in the world, with more than 62% of the population in the working-age group and more than 54% of the total population below 25 years of age. This creates a large pool of human resources with high-untapped potential for development.”
He also said that they are delighted to partner with NSDC as it will give an opportunity to strengthen our purpose of democratizing education and education financing in India. This will also contribute towards developing a ‘skilled India.’ This partnership will increase the reach and fulfil the mission of making education financing seamless, affordable, and accessible for every deserving Indian student.
Ved Mani Tiwari, Chief Operating Officer and Officiating CEO, NSDC
“Access to finance is critical for democratisation of educations and skills. Partnerships with NBFCs like Avanse help NSDC move one step closer towards its core purpose ‘Skills4All, Anytime, Anywhere’ as it helps achieve financial inclusion of those sections of our society who otherwise cannot imagine acquiring skills for new-age employment/ entrepreneurship opportunities in India or overseas.”
