Global Talent Track launches Talent Valley Project with University of Kashmir in Pune
GTT has partnered with University of Kashmir (UoK) to launch the Talent Valley Project
– the Employability initiative in a suite of career oriented programs in IT & ITES sectors, today. The State of J & K is rich in heritage, endowed with natural beauty and has produced many captains of the modern economy, but still is disconnected from the other knowledge power houses of the country.
The State’s Chief Minister has envisioned producing 5000 trained, employable personnel in this sector in the immediate future. And in line with this, GTT has custom made its initiative of training the youth of Kashmir in the sectors of IT & ITES, and provided them with the option of getting trained in Pune or Kashmir.
The commencement of the Pune initiative for the first batch of 100 students will go a long way in achieving GTT’s goal of creating the right environment for the knowledge sector to flourish in Kashmir. GTT will provide technical training and facilitate industry projects for them in Pune, along with internship and placement assistance. And simultaneously pursue this in Kashmir for the ones who want it made available in their hometown.
