Along with MITx certification, Hero Vired will also offer internships and job placements at reputed corporates and start-ups thereby ensuring a seamless transition into this age of automation
Commenting on the partnership, Srikrishnan V, Vice-President & Head, Vired for Business, Hero Vired, said, “We are excited about this partnership with Text & Clicks Academy and our shared vision of upskilling and enabling retired armed forces personnel to transition into alternative careers post retirement in India. Companies are increasingly looking for veterans in various domains. Our goal, with this collaboration, is to train and assist them in securing employment opportunities in newer technologies. This unique partnership between Text And Clicks Academy and Vired For Business will provide armed officials with access to highly technical programs in Data Science, AI and ML which go beyond traditional vocational skills. We also believe that the armed personnel entering the workforce will bring in their discipline, dedication and productivity to the sector, which are critical skills for the future of work.”
Text & Clicks Academy has trained over 16,000 participants over the last three years with a placement percentage of 62%, including participants from the Indian Navy, Kherwadi Social Welfare Association, Tribes India across formats, as well as enterprises and conglomerates like Hero Motocorp for internal training.
“In an era of ever-evolving industrial requirements, we believe that skills are an individual’s greatest asset; they serve us at will. Skilling is, therefore, at the heart of our vision and our ideologies. We are happy to partner with Hero Vired for Business in realising our common mission of putting retired armed forces personnel on the corporate radar. Transcending from the armed forces to corporate positions will be facilitated by empowering them with new-age skills of AI, ML and Data Science – the three technical skills which are transforming business functions and processes in addition to our existing courses. Our association with Hero Vired for Business will help us jointly unlock many new avenues in this age of digital transformation,” said Mr. Narinder Madan, Head of Corporate Relations, Text and Clicks Academy.
