Sankhya Infotech has entered into partnership with the Telecom Sector Skill Council (TSSC) to impart skilled human resources to the telecom industry and provide online and digital training to telecom professionals across India.

 

As the digital content partner of TSSC, Sankhya would offer various TSSC courses on an online e-marketplace, giving trainees experiential training in learning telecom technology.

 

N. Sridhar, Chairman & Managing Director, Sankhya Infotech, said, “We are excited by the launch of the first B2C training technology platform. Sankhya’s high-fidelity immersive training technology and learning management platform. The telecom sector has a high rate of obsolescence due to rapid technology changes and to meet the changing needs the skills of people needs to be enhanced at a faster pace. Our partnership with TSSC will help improve the skills using the online platforms and virtual classrooms using digital tools like Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality.”

 

TSSC Chief Executive Officer Lt Gen (Dr) S. P. Kochhar said, “The telecom sector is one of the largest employment generating sectors in the country and it has the potential to generate 5.6 million job opportunities over the next five years (as per the KPMG report). This gives rise to the need for an organization that would lead skill development and our partnership with Sankhya is aimed at this objective. We are confident that skills provided by Sankhya to the telecom professionals will make the sector more dynamic and strong.”

 

The KPMG National Skills Development Council Report estimates 5.6 million telecom services jobs in India in the next five years. The Indian Cellular Association report estimates 3.1 million telecom sector manufacturing jobs over the next five years that need a high degree of skill. The Government of India’s “Make-in-India” programme is expected to push the demand for telecom sector jobs even further, and in the next five years over 10 million skilled jobs in the telecom sector are expected to be generated in India.
