Feb. 23, 2012 - PRLog -- The employability of India’s youth is a growing topic of conversation, both in the media and within the corporate world.  Vishesh C Chandiok, National Managing Partner, Grant Thornton India stated, “Over half of privately owned businesses in India (51%) stress that a lack of availability of skilled labor will constrain their ability to grow”. The report published by his company stated that, if India wants to have a competitive edge, then the focus needs to be on creating skilled, professional resources. This report is just one of many that emphasizes the growing need for job-focused courses, which will help to improve the employability of India’s growing working population.  

To help offset this supply-demand imbalance, UK based Course Exchange Ltd has launched CourseKing in India (, to help people in India find UK accredited job-focused courses, to help them improve their skills, and ultimately their career potential.  

Many students think that an international qualification helps them differentiate from their peers and ultimately set them on the track to achieving the career, and compensation, they desire.   While less realize the benefit a job-focused course can have to help them rise up from the crowd.  CourseKing has been designed to help those looking for: international courses, a way to differentiate, guidance on how to find and achieve their chosen career path, or even turn a hobby into a money maker.  

Naina Acharya, Marketing Manager, CourseKing says, “When we realized that there is such a huge job-focused skills gap in India, we decided to help students find courses to improve their career potential and employability through offering UK courses direct to the students in India. Our objective is to allow students and those who want to improve their professional life to search and compare courses - within their budget, which they can study at their own convenience, whether that’s in India or the UK.”  She further adds “The portal also guides students by providing detailed career advice, alongside tips on which type of course will help them grow professionally.”
