Salesforce, a CRM provider, collaborates with NASSCOM’s FutureSkills Prime program to upskill 1 lakh aspirants by 2024 for free. The idea is to bring courses devised by Salesforce’s experts on NASSCOM’s online learning platform, FutureSkills.
Over the years, Salesforce has been offering free courses through its Trailhead platform to not only aspirants from Salesforce but also from any corner of the world. Since 2014, the year of the launch of Trailhead, over 3 million people have learned in-demand skills for free.
However, the requirement for digital skill since the pandemic has rapidly increased, as a result, there is a need to double down on such upskilling initiatives from both organizations and governments alike. As per a report from World Economic Forum, 50% of all employees will need new skills in the next five years.
Salesforce will also provide learners access to its career fails and help get a job post getting upskilled. “Trailhead is designed to remove barriers to learning by empowering anyone to skill up for the jobs of tomorrow. We are excited to be associated with NASSCOM to provide a platform for continuous learning and bridge the digital skills gap in India,” says Arundhati Bhattacharya, CEO and chairperson of Salesforce India.
NASSCOM’s FutureSkills has been continuously adding new courses on the e-learning platform since its inception. With the recent collaboration with Salesforce, the platform will allow aspirants to get mentors’ help, bring new dimensions to the platform.
