The company said it will run a pilot on skilling candidates in the areas of ICTEC (Information, Communication Technology, Electronics & Cyber as related to Telecom) and connect them with potential jobs matching their skill profiles.

Project Sangam was first announced by Microsoft CEO Sayta Nadella in February this year and makes use of Microsoft‘s Azure services and LinkedIn along with Aadhaar verification to provide people an integrated mobile-first platform for skilling and employment.

With this pilot, Microsoft India said it will provide TSCC a platform to onboard identified skilling partners, content creators, training candidates and potential employers.

The sector council can then create courses compliant with the National Skills Qualification Framework, which can be further extended by their partners and trainers with their own training material.
