New Delhi (India), November 10: In a world that’s rapidly evolving, the need for skill development and vocational training has never been more significant. ICA Edu Skills, a pioneering training institute, recognized this need when it was incorporated on November 5th, 1999, by the visionary CA Dr. Narendra Shyamsukha. Driven by a mission to bridge the skill gap among Indian youth and empower them with the expertise to secure jobs in various industries, ICA Edu Skills has embarked on a remarkable journey of growth and accomplishment over the past 25 years.
The Foundation of Excellence
ICA Edu Skills began its journey with just four computers in a small building in Kolkata. Fast forward to today, it boasts a PAN India presence with over 300 training centers. This incredible growth is a testament to the institute’s commitment to its mission.
Mission: Strengthening the Industry through Skill Development
ICA Edu Skills’ mission is multi-faceted, designed to fortify its position in the industry and maximize the impact it has on the lives of countless young Indians. By building a strong brand image, enhancing student and employer satisfaction, developing a dedicated and ethical task force, and innovating industry-relevant courses, the institute has consistently raised the bar for vocational training.
Vision: A World-Class, Student-Friendly Institution
The institute envisions itself as a world-class, progressive, cost-effective, and student-friendly institution. ICA Edu Skills aims to provide career-oriented, IT-enabled training that not only benefits students but also serves society by addressing the issue of youth unemployment. The integration of cutting-edge technology and a focus on corporate values further exemplify their vision.
Empowering Through Practical Training
One of the institute’s standout initiatives is the “Any Time Job” (ATJ) card, which ensures lifetime job opportunities for its students. Furthermore, ICA Edu Skills has forged partnerships with renowned universities like Sharda University, GD Goenka University, Techno India University, and Royal Global University. These partnerships have led to the creation of unique undergraduate programs on B.Com, BBA & B.Sc in Data Science that combine a two-year classroom program with a one-year paid internship, effectively bridging the gap between academia and industry.
