Also Laurus Edutech and DLF Foundation last year signed an MOU, where Laurus Edutech would setup 18 centres in the first phase which will operate as co-branded centres across India as part of the agreement. The Babu Jagjeewan Ram centre has been earmarked to be one of those centres that Laurus Edutech need to setup centres jointly with DLF Foundation. Located in the heart of Manesar phase one and two, near Gurgaon, Babu Jagjeewan Ram ITC has been established under the aegis of Lord Buddha Social Development & Education Foundation (Regd).
This pact with Babu Jagjeewan Ram ITC would help Laurus Edutech bring forth many opportunities for school dropouts from the economically backward section of the society by providing them technical education for a very nominal and affordable fee in the Manesar region. The courses offered at Babu Jagjeewan ITC include Electrical, Fitter, Welder all affiliated from National Council of Vocational Training (NCVT) besides other courses like Draftsman Mechanical (DMM), Draftsman Civil (DMC) and Electrical and Computer Operator & Programming Assistant (COPA) from State Council of Vocational Training (SCVT). The center also has a recognition for VTP to short term MES courses.
Expressing his elation on this new development, Mr. Srinivas Rao Cheedella, Managing Director, Laurus Edutech said, “We zeroed in on Babu Jagjeewan Ram ITC for this collaboration due to the great visibility and location of the centre. Also, we reflected upon the fact that students from under privileged backgrounds, if fail to secure good marks quit studies and with this their desire for betterment in life becomes more challenging. Therefore, Laurus Edutech and Babu Jagjeewan Ram ITC have confederated to present these monetarily-challenged but aspirationally-
India is a developing nation and has been witnessing turbo-charged growth in industrialization, infrastructure, manufacturing, service sector and other such arenas. This calls for an all-time high demand for more and more skilled labor, since recruiting manpower from abroad is a highly costly affair. There is great potential for Associate Degree, Diploma and Certificate holders undergoing technical training in Industrial training centres. Owing to the huge demand, our observation has been that almost 100% of the trained technical people get placed in Private, Public and Government sectors.
Speaking about this new venture, Mr. Anoop Kumar, Head of Operations, Laurus Edutech Life Skills said, “Every centre of ours has an industry partner and that way our skill development programs are all aligned to the industry needs and expectations, and we sometimes typically setup the centre inside the campus of the industry partner, to help the process as a supply. This time, for our alliance with Babu Jagjeewan Ram ITC its with DLF Foundation as part of our agreement with them to setup 18 centres jointly in the first phase. Moreover, the strategic location of Babu Jagjeewan Ram ITC has played a big role in this alliance as it is based near Manesar and Gurgaon which are the bustling hub of industrial activities.”
