Microsoft India on Monday signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Telecom Sector Skill Council (TSSC) to drive skill development through “Project Sangam”.
“Project Sangam” is a Cloud hosted platform that leverages Microsoft Azure services, as well as the power of LinkedIn, to provide an integrated mobile-first platform for skilling, and employment.
“We are pleased to bring the power of Microsoft Cloud technologies and data analytics to the Telecom Sector Skill Council and look forward to supporting them in their mission to develop world class skilled manpower for the telecom industry in India,” said Sanjeev Gupta, country manager, Public Sector, Microsoft India.
Telecom Sector Skill Council is a not-for-profit public-private partnership between National Skill Development Corporation and the telecom industry.
Using the platform, TSCC can create courses compliant with the National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF). These courses can then be further extended by their partners and trainers with their own training material.
“We believe Microsoft’s programmes, tools and resources will empower telecom sector professionals with new-age competencies and narrow the existing gap between demand and supply of skills,” said SP Kochhar, chief executive officer, Telecom Sector Skill Council.
