Sky is the Limit When Hopes are High
Vijay Singh Chauhan, Rajasthan
God bless the company which provided a job to my son and made him independent" cries an overwrought mother whose younger son got a job after receiving sector specific skills from Centum Learning.
Dreams and aspirations are not limited to urban India alone. There are millions of youth in small towns and cities across India that hope for a decent living and a good lifestyle. Kota’s Vijay Singh Chauhan is one such.
Vijay lost his father at an early age, and despite having an older brother, the responsibility of supporting the family fell on his shoulders. However, after completing class XII exams Vijay lost all hopes of finding a job due to lack of communication and computer skills.
After enrolling in Centum Learning’s Course for Call Centre Executives under STAR scheme, Vijay got a job which entails resolving computer-related issues. Today, Vijay speaks fluent English and interacts with US-based clients. Each day is a revelation for him as he helps clients fix tech problems, when earlier he could not even switch on a computer.
Centum Learning rolled out Standard Training Assessment & Reward (STAR) project under National Skill Certification & Monetary Reward Scheme and has trained more than 8500 youth this far.
Vijay’s younger brother Dilip Singh Chauhan is inspired and has enrolled in the same training programme. Vijay says, "I hope someday my brother will fluently speak in English too".
"I feel good that I can speak English. I talk to clients from USA and solve their computer related problems, when I myself had never used computer prior to my training from Centum Learning."
