Safe­d­u­cate,a part of Saf­ex­press Group, has signed a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing (MoU) with Tata In­sti­tute of So­cial Sciences (TISS).

This re­mark­able tie-up will help cre­ate skilled work­force in the man­power in­ten­sive sup­ply chain and lo­gis­tics in­dus­try.

Safe­d­u­cate has now be­come the Skill Knowl­edge Part­ner (SKP) of TISS and will drive the sup­ply chain skilling revo­lu­tion in In­dia. The MoU was signed by

Divya Jain, CEO, Safe­d­u­cate in the pres­ence of TISS Di­rec­tor, S Para­sur­a­man and Deputy Di­rec­tor, Neela Dabir.

On the oc­ca­sion, Jain said, “Safe­d­u­cate has been in the field of train­ing and skilling for over seven years now. This part­ner­ship with one of In­dia’s fore­most ed­u­ca­tion cen­tre will help us get sup­ply chain ed­u­ca­tion to a cov­eted po­si­tion, as well as cre­ate cour­ses that are not just mar­ket driven but also aspi­ra­tional for the stu­dents. We look for­ward to a brighter ca­reer for as­pi­rants in this field by way of a ro­bust vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem.”

Para­sur­a­man re­marked, “Vo­ca­tional cour­ses have been de­signed with a def­i­nite vi­sion to im­prove the lives of dis­ad­van­taged and marginalised youth, es­pe­cially those who are ex­cluded by the for­mal school ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem. TISS SVE (School of Vo­ca­tional Ed­u­ca­tion) has been set up to cre­ate an ecosys­tem that would bring back the dig­nity of labour for blue-col­lar streams of work and cre­ate a sus­tain­able source of in­come for them.”

Para­sur­a­man elab­o­rated, “TISS is lead­ing a skill de­vel­op­ment revo­lu­tion through mul­ti­ple types of in­ter­ven­tions in the area of skilling of un­em­ployed and school dropout youth in In­dia. Apart from the reg­u­lar skilling pro­grammes like short-term cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­grammes and skill en­hance­ment pro­grammes, TISS is also launch­ing In­dia’s first un­der­grad­u­ate de­gree pro­gramme in skilling, called Bach­e­lors in Vo­ca­tional Ed­u­ca­tion (B Voc.).”
