EDUCATION PLUS

Turning out job-ready students



“The divide between the academics and industry is ever widening especially after India is projected as a sole source for humanware in the IT sector.”

EdServ (formerly Lambent Softsystems P Ltd), a 7-year-old Staffing solution and Consulting Company has recently launched a 4th Generation education model that promises employment for every registered candidate.

The company plans to address retail, telecom, healthcare, BPO segments apart from IT. The company has already tied up with retail software maker GoFrugal Technologies to train job aspirants in the retail domain as part of the initiative.

HEADS, as the education Model of EdServ is known, has been developed after intensive research for over a year with focus on job fitment. The model maps each student’s skill and level of knowledge and trains the students to fit into the job, he/she has been selected for. There is scope for exit from the programme or shift to another, both for the student as well as for the employer who can choose to refrain from training the student and switch to another student if the student fails to rise to a level required by the job.

The model insists on mandatory job fitment for every course with back-to-back tie-up with the industry. The content covers the basic requirements of today’s and tomorrow’s industry in terms of an overall skill development of a fresher so as to be job-ready.

EdServ chairman Giridharan says, “The divide between the academics and industry is ever widening especially after India is projected as a sole source for humanware in the IT sector. Institutions focus so much on IT that core industry suffers from lack of qualified and trained resources. We are focussed in generating competent freshers for non-IT domains up to 70 per cent of our business.”

EdServ’s first batch in the HEADS model starts by May 2008.
