NASSCOM’s IT-ITeS Sector Skills Council certifies IEEE curriculum


Bangalore: IT-ITeS Sector Skills Council NASSCOM (SSC NASSCOM), has approved and certified the alignment of curricula, expressed in the outcomes based format, developed by IEEE Computer Society, towards five industry identified job roles / Qualification Packs (QP).

IEEE Computer Society has used the approved curricula to further design its own courseware, to effectively reduce the skills gap for Indian technology workers just beginning their careers.

IEEE Computer Society has developed its own courseware and training material in pursuance of the curricula aligned to the QPs concerned, to provide the necessary training for engineers with zero-to-two years’ experience. SSC NASSCOM’s Curriculum Alignment Certification to IEEE is for NSQF Level 7 (National Skills Qualification Framework) QPs ie ‘SSC/Q4202-Engineer Trainee’, ‘SSC/Q0501-Software Developer’, ‘SSC/Q4601-Software Engineer’, ‘SSC/Q6702-Software Developer’ and ‘SSC/Q0507- Engineer Trainee’

The training will be provided by IEEE Computer Society trained and approved ‘Registered Education Providers’ (REPs) based throughout India. Those completing the courses can aim to be assessed and certified as competent in the particular QP / job role, by SSC NASSCOM, the authorized QP standard setting and certifying body under NSDC,GOI.

Dr. Sandhya Chintala, VP, NASSCOM & Executive Director, SSC NASCOM said, “IT-ITeS Sector Skills Council NASSCOM aims to drive, scale and sustain a powerful skill development initiative to create a skills ready workforce for the future of this industry. I congratulate global organizations such as IEEE, who aim to prepare students in India, aligned to industry validated Qualification Packs (QPs), which is an important step in providing the quality education and training that India needs to continue in its anticipated growth trajectory. In this context SSC NASSCOM certifications with respect to Qualification Packs will provide our students the currency for global mobility.”

“We are very pleased to partner with the SSC NASSCOM to provide our global and time-tested education and training resources in furtherance of India’s impressive campaign to raise education and training levels to create a new generation of highly skilled workers,” said Angela Burgess, IEEE Computer Society Executive Director. “We look forward to contributing to this goal however we can”, she added.

IT-ITeS SSC NASSCOM is the skill standard setting body of the IT-ITeS Industry and it is the education and skill development initiative of NASSCOM.
