India’s Directorate General of Training (DGT) recently launched the SkillsBuild platform in collaboration with IBM. As part of the programme, a two-year advanced diploma in information technology, networking and cloud computing, co-created and designed by IBM, will be offered at the Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) and National Skill Training Institutes (NSTIs).

DGT is an entity under the ministry of skill development and entrepreneurship (MSDE).

The platform will be extended to train ITI and NSTI faculty on building skills in artificial intelligence (AI). SkillsBuild offers digital learning content from IBM and partners such as CodeDoor, Coorpacademy and Skillsoft, according to an official release.

The digital platform will provide a personal assessment of the cognitive capabilities and personality via MyInnerGenius to the students. They will then learn foundational knowledge about digital technologies, and professional skills like resume-writing, problem solving and communication.

Students will also receive recommendations on role-based education for specific jobs that include technical and professional learning.

This initiative is part of IBM’s global commitment to create a job-ready workforce and to build the next generation of skills needed for new collar careers. The platform is deployed with the support of leading non-governmental organisations like Unnati and Edunet Foundation.
