Haryana Vishwakarma Skill University has decided to launch a PG programme for graduates, aimed at bridging the skills-gap in the banking industry and transforming candidates into job-ready professionals.
While stating this, a spokesman of the University said that the university has partnered with HDFC Bank to run a M. Voc in Finance and Banking and co-develop the curriculum and delivery methodology of the training course, titled ‘M. Voc’ programme. The Bank would also train the faculty, conduct guest lectures, provide on the job training to students and mentor them.
He said that applicants would undergo a robust selection process and HDFC Bank would make a conditional offer of employment to selected candidates at the start of the course.
Extending to two years, ‘M.Voc’ will craft talented graduates under the age of 25, into job-ready professionals by training them for various retail (branch) banking roles such as personal bankers and tellers.
Graduates could directly apply for the course at Link. Over 14,000 students who have already enrolled under the Saksham Yuva Scheme of the Government of Haryana would be given preference for this programme, he added.
The initiative is in line with the government of India’s Skill Development programme. Commenting on this alliance, Mr. Raj Nehru, Vice Chancellor, Haryana Vishwakarma Skill University, said, “We are excited to partner with HDFC Bank to launch a course of banking. The association with the Bank will go a long way in fulfilling the Vishwakarma Skill University’s promise of providing skilled and employment-ready candidates to the financial services industry.”
The model of learning of this programme would focus on all areas of Banking system such as operational aspects of treasury and latest regulatory provisions from time to time. We hope to create more such opportunities across various industries that will not only add value to businesses but also create employment opportunities across the country, added Mr Nehru.
Regional Head – Haryana, HDFC Bank, Jasmeet Singh Anand said, “Finding fresh graduates with the right career and motivational fit is key to any talent acquisition strategy at entry level. Such partnerships will equip graduates with skill sets aligned with their career aspirations. We are confident that through this course we will build a fine talent pool in sync with the requirements of the bank.”
