Classle has launched Ready Steady Jobs, a programme to tackle the employability issue.

The training, according to Vaidya Nathan, Chief Executive and Founder of Classle, would consist of a series of video tutorials, discussions and assignments, targeted at helping students develop the skills required to land a satisfying job.

‘It is open to students across all disciplines and is for free,’ Vaidya Nathan told Business Line.

The programme started on April 8 and will end on July 31.

Around 150 colleges, mostly from Tamil Nadu, besides some in Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra are said to have tied up with Classle.

Vaiya Nathan says that around 79,000 students have registered for the Ready Steady Jobs programme till date (since its commencement on April 8).

Asked how this programme would help students become industry-ready, he said, “We are not looking at employability in isolation. It is not like fitting an alloy wheel in a car. We will put the candidate through a series of tests, track their activity in a passive way by engaging them in discussions and so on, and as also help them enhance their technical knowledge and communication skills.”

Based on the interactions during the programme, we will prepare a report on five dimension including quantitative ability, skill and expertise, academic and personal details and the unique trait smart report, said the Classle Founder.

“Jobs are aplenty. While employability is an issue, the fact is - job aspirants are only looking to join the Big Four and campus placement. We are looking to groom the prospective candidate and signal to the hirers to look at the world as a talent acquisition platform,” he said.

Classle is planning to do the programme on a regular basis. “We are waiting to launch some programmes at the school level from July,” he added.
