Digital Training Model has been the strategic focus of Youth and Persons with Disability (PwD) Skilling Programs. The design process got accelerated due to the pandemic. GROW- Digital Programs (for Youth & PwD) focus on virtually delivered high-quality “core employability skills” to ensure that aspirants are equipped with the right skills & competencies to start their career.
Low aspirant engagement and lack of quality in virtually delivered skilling programs
Lack of industry-aligned courses and quality placements
Few digital training programs for persons with disability, especially in rural settings.
Lack of placement-linked programs & awareness among employers.
In addition to GROW’s key features and focus on “Core Employability Skills” the Grow Digital Program leverages certified trainers with the competency to deliver quality virtual training, along with a Learning Management System (LMS) that complements the virtual learning process.
Grow Digital for Persons with Disability also includes a sensitization workshop for employers to help them incorporate Persons with Disability in their workforce.
GROW digital training models have been successfully piloted with more than 4000 youth and 2000 persons with Disability during the lockdown. Digital Training Models will help in reaching out to the new segment of youth (from the same target group, who have a smartphone with data connectivity). This will also help in scaling up the impact with speed, due to its cost advantage.
