The partnership is aimed at mobilizing and training the students in the construction sector so that the rising need for skilled manpower in the construction business can be fulfilled.
As per recent research reports, the Construction Industry is in dire need of skilled manpower and there are not many players around who are providing training in the construction trades. Thus, Laurus has stepped forth to impart training in various trades like bar bending, tile layering, form work, electrician and plumber so that they can fill the widening skill gap. The course duration is spread over 1.5 years wherein the students will also be given on the job training and MES certification on successful completion of the course.
The program will be conducted at VBHC site in Anekal (Bangalore). Based on the requirements, progress and response, Laurus will establish more centers at other VBHC locations in future.
Commenting on the association Vardhman Jain, Founder Director, Laurus Edutech said, “Though the construction sector is booming in India, the scarcity of skilled manpower is affecting the growth of this sector. According to NSDC, 500 million skilled workers will be required by 2022 in this industry. We are happy to join hands with VBHC to provide skill-based training and opportunity for people to enter this industry and develop a worthwhile career.”
“The construction sector is witnessing the dearth of skilled manpower which results in high wastage of resources on site. The shortage of the skilled manpower is holding up projects. Our partnership with Laurus is aimed at imparting skill development training in the construction sector so that we can increase the productivity and quality while executing projects successfully”, said Rahul Sabharwal, COO, Value and Budget Housing Corporation.
