“With these quality assurance courses, we are laying the foundation for a sustainable implementation of high quality world-class skilling in India,” says Chandra Kumar, Founder, Co-Chairman & CEO of SkillSonics in Bangalore. The core objective of the Quality Assurance Project is to improve the practical, methodological and didactic skills of the trainers and managers involved in vocational training. It is a two-year project that is taking place from September 2015 to August 2017. In the first year the focus is on developing occupational profiles for VET teachers and trainers, and validating courseware for training modules in accordance with Swiss standards.
SkillSonics and its Swiss partners have designed a series of programs based on Swiss curricula design methodology to ensure outcomes that are in line with the requirements of the Indian ecosystem and meet international standards. Master trainers from the sector organization of the Swiss Engineering, Electrical and Metal Industries (Swissmem), the Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (SFIVET), the Mechatronic School Winterthur (MSW) and the Technical Training Center Winterthur (AZW) as well as from SkillSonics in India ensure an efficient and thorough application. SkillSonics’ customers such as ABB, ACC, ACE Foundation, Ambuja Cement, Bobst, Buhler, Burckhardt Compression, EFD Induction, GMM Pfaudler, Rieter and other companies and institutes are sending their trainers to be trained in India under the Quality Assurance Project.
So far 5000 youth have been trained
SkillSonics, together with its Swiss and Indian partner organizations, offers over a 100 standard and customized training programs to engineering companies and institutes in the field of mechanical, electrical and electrical engineering. The Indian economic and cultural conditions, as well as India’s existing educational and training systems are taken into account. Graduates of the programs receive a Swissmem diploma, Swissmem certificates and also an Indian national certification. To date, 5’000 youth and existing workforce have been trained in India. By evaluating and strengthening trainer performance, the Quality Assurance Project will ensure that the delivery of the SVETII programs meets international standards and allows further upscaling and expansion of the SVETII throughout India.
Public-private partnership
The Swiss Vocational Education and Training Initiative India (SVETII) was launched in 2008 as a public-private partnership project on the occasion of the 60-year anniversary of the Indo-Swiss Friendship and Establishment Treaty. The SkillSonics team implemented the pilot project which was initiated by the Swiss-Indian Chamber of Commerce (SICC) in collaboration with Swissmem, SFIVET and renowned Swiss companies operating in India. In 2011, the Swiss project partners decided to expand the initiative in view of the excellent cooperation and growing interest in the project in India and Switzerland. In 2013, India’s National
Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), became a partner in SkillSonics India Pvt. Ltd. Since 2015, SkillSonics is also an affiliated partner of India’s Capital Goods Sector Council (CGSC).
