Randstad India and NIIT Announce the Launch of Randstad Skilling Academy

Randstad India, an HR services player, has partnered with NIIT Limited, a global leader in Skills and Talent Development, to launch the Randstad Skilling Academy (RSA) with the objective to provide agile and effective reskilling to the chosen candidates, equipping them to remain relevant, fit into evolving businesses and prepare them to work with the world's best employer brands.


RSA, in association with NIIT, offers IT skilling programs and seeks to fulfil unique industry workforce needs in these difficult hiring times - where ever-changing 'new-normals' are disrupting conventional hiring methods. 


StackRoute, an NIIT venture has been chosen as an exclusive partner to help RSA in this endeavour – to design programs and manage delivery at scale.


RSA focuses on skilling/up-skilling/cross-skilling resources vis-à-vis current and upcoming technologies to increase their 'employability quotient'. The academy is looking to build a truly trusted ecosystem with prime skilled candidates who are ready to be hired. 


 Paul Dupuis, MD & CEO, Randstad India said in a statement, “We are very excited about launching the RSA. We understand the need for talent to be skilled and employable. Today, reskilling is not only a tool for career advancement, but also for future-proofing in a world of ambiguity.” 


“Through RSA, we aim to enable hundreds of candidates with the relevant in-demand skills that will help them secure better jobs. Our partnership with NIIT ensures a steady stream of future-ready IT professionals adept in programming languages like Java, Angular, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and automated business functions. This program has been designed specifically based on feedback from our clients across India,” he added. 


The first batch of the academy commenced from September 2020 and candidates go through fully funded training programs by Randstad - on Java, .NET, Python, Mobile App Development, AI/ML, Big Data, Cloud Technologies, and Testing amongst others. 


Speaking on the announcement Bimaljeet Singh Bhasin, President, Skills and Careers Business, NIIT Ltd., said, “In today's rapidly changing times, there is a huge requirement of skilled employees especially in deep tech and digital skills. We are delighted to partner with Randstad India to create a pool of next-generation workforce, who are prepared to work on the requirements of their top clients. Together we hope to bridge the skill gap that the industry is currently faced with.”
