SKILLS DELIVERY PLATFORM KERALA- Linking Engg Colleges with IT Parks through a Telepresence Network : Mathrubhumi English | 28 February 2017 |

Kozhikode: The state government has accorded comprehensive administrative sanction for Skills Delivery Platform Kerala, a project to link Engineering Colleges with IT Parks via Tele presence network. The Kerala Technological University has been asked to furnish the complete list of educational institutions that are to be included in the implementation of this project. The project aims to create a platform to deliver skills training to around 50,000 students every year. As part of the project, a learning platform will be launched connecting 150 Hi-Tech classrooms in the Engineering Colleges in the state. Besides, a skill database will be prepared that will have the students’ profile and that would be accessible for industry for their fresh graduate recruitment programme, thereby increasing the job placement for students from Kerala.  Earlier, the project proposal was not approved for KIIFB funding since the aggregate amount was lower than the prescribed limit of Rs.100 crores for KIIFB funding. Following this, the Managing Director, KSITIL requested Government to issue revised administrative sanction to proceed with the project. Now, the Govt has accorded comprehensive administrative sanction for the project for four financial years from 2016-17 to 2019-20 at a total amount of Rs 91.16 crore.

ICT Academy of Kerala shall be the consultant for the content development and if required shall source it from third party experts. The affiliating institute should create the physical infrastructure catering to 66-70 seat Hi-Tech classroom, uninterrupted power supply to the classroom and necessary connecting infrastructure for the network. Government assistance for the purchase of computing devices for participants under this project shall be limited only to the students who have obtained the admission on merit basis and students who have been admitted under self-financed/management/NRI Quota will not be eligible for such assistance.  Kerala State Information Technology Infrastructure Limited (KSITIL) was designated as the special purpose vehicle (SPV) for the implementation of the project.  –  Courtesy    /    SKILLS DELIVERY PLATFORM KERALA- Linking Engg Colleges with IT Parks through a Telepresence Network- Click here for KTU Notification
