Aimed at implementing a strategic skill-based programme in the country, Adobe Systems on Wednesday announced a partnership with IT-ITeS Sector Skills Council Nasscom (SSC NASSCOM).

As part of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the two would jointly develop and implement a sustainable as well as scalable skill-based programme for schools and higher education institutions in the country.

The pilot phase will benefit minimum of 5,000 students across 100 public and private institutions from 10 states.

"‘Skilling' is a national imperative for India's youth to achieve its highest potential and to optimise the country's demographic dividend. We are happy to associate with long-term industry leader Adobe and share their expertise in software based training and programmes," said Dr Sandhya Chintala, Executive Director, IT-ITeS SSC Nasscom and Vice President, Nasscom, in a statement.

As part of the association, 150 faculty members will also be coached under the 'train-the-trainer' programme.

"As a nation with the world's largest youth population, it is our responsibility to ensure that the next generation talent pool is empowered with the necessary tools to succeed in a digital economy," added Kulmeet Bawa, Managing Director-South Asia, Adobe.

Both will work together to design skill-based courseware and qualification packs for web designers, software developers, UI developers, media developers and others.
