PUNE, INDIA: Global Talent Track (GTT), a venture for vocational education requirements together with Pune University and CISCO, today formally launched a joint initiative that will cover Science, Commerce and Arts students in colleges across Maharashtra.

CISCO is the technology partner of this program.

With multiple content providers, technology partners and certifying agencies as members of this consortium, the project intends to cover all the constituent colleges in the state with specialisations in insurance, banking, supply chain and HR as the first set of courses.

The next phase would entail new courses like retail, hospitality, healthcare, SCM and education.

The program has three layers starting from basic awareness in the high school segment, to vocational to professional development.

We could cover about 500,000 students in the next two to three years, told Dr. Uma Ganesh, founder and CEO of GTT.

The program would be organised in three modules of 132 hours each – foundation, intermediate and advanced.
With CISCO as a key partner and virtual classrooms playing a major role, the mix splits between 70 per cent electronic and 30 per cent physical course delivery.

About 1000 teachers would also be trained under the programme which is a blended learning module with facilitators around the system.

"The unique thrust of this initiative is that it will combine both quality and scale over a long term that will help fill the skill gaps and employability issue in the service sector," said Dr. Ganesh Natarajan, chairman, NASSCOM.
GTT has invested about Rs six crore initially over a 18 month period.
