Skills for Schools and Colleges

Skills for Schools and Colleges

A business sees success when its foundation is strong. The same goes for a nation. A nation becomes strong only when its foundation, i.e., its youth is empowered. Empowerment is achieved when the right set of skills are disseminated among the students at the right time.

We, at Centum Learning, believe that the journey of a candidate from a potential to an apt talent begins with skills training at the grassroots level, i.e., schools and colleges. With the implementation of National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF) from class IX onwards, the awareness as well as demand for vocational training is going to soar across all levels.

We not only train the students in schools but also deliver capacity building training to schools. In addition, we provide Effective School Management and Leadership training to Principals, Vice Principals and Heads of institutions. We also provide comprehensive end-to- end solutions in the skills assessment domain.
