Digital & Offline Skills: Samsung, NSDC partner to train Indian youths

Followed by five months of OJT at Samsung retail stores under Samsung’s Digital & Offline Skills Training, the participants will receive 200 hours of blended classroom and online training, along with a monthly stipend that will prepare them for India’s fast-growing electronics retail sector

To train 50,000 youths under a CSR initiative, ‘Samsung DOST’ (Digital & Offline Skills Training), to equip them with skills needed for working in the electronics retail sector, Samsung India on Tuesday said it has partnered with the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).

NSDC will train 2,500 participants at 120 sites across the country under the first phase. These participants will be school pass-outs and will be provided with paid on-the-job training (OJT) at Samsung’s retail outlets, said an official statement.

Followed by five months of OJT at Samsung retail stores under Samsung’s Digital & Offline Skills Training, the participants will receive 200 hours of blended classroom and online training, along with a monthly stipend that will prepare them for India’s fast-growing electronics retail sector.

“The Samsung Digital & Offline Skills Training program is aligned to the Government of India’s Skill India initiative and is an embodiment of our vision of #PoweringDigitalIndia that seeks to empower the next generation of young India. With this new program, we aim to close the skills and employability gap among youth in the country, helping them find jobs in the fast-growing electronics retail sector”, said Ken Kang, President and CEO of Samsung Southwest Asia.

Elaborating further, the statement said that the training will be in accordance with the National Skill Qualification Framework and will include skill sets such as customer engagement, sales counter management, handling customer queries, product demonstration and selling skills along with soft skills training including post-COVID etiquettes.

Participants will be made familiar with the functioning of electronics retail stores through live demonstrations, role-play techniques, and hands-on training during the OJT under the Digital & Offline Skills Training program.

The assessments and certification of the participants will be done by the Telecom Sector Skill Council (TSSC) after the participants complete their OJT, the statement added.
