ALISON, a free online certified learning and workplace skills training company, and India’s National Skills Development Corporation (NSDC) have announced a new partnership.
The deal will see the development of a new skills website, which will map learning resources to industry learning needs as defined by the India Sector Skills Council.
People in India will be able to study free courses towards national standard qualifications, as well as courses to prepare Indian migrants for living and working in the Middle East. Indian learners will also have access to the full ALISON course curriculum of over 750 free online courses.
Galway-headquartered ALISON already has a very significant presence in India with over one million registered users. Mike Feerick, the founder and chief executive of ALISON, said that the group and the NSDC share high ambitions and a similar social contract to up-skill millions of workers across India.
“Together, we can reach new standards of learning achievement, driving economic activity of the India people at home and abroad,” Mr Feerick added.
