In a move to upskill the Indian students’ carmaker MG Motor India announced the MG Nurture Program in the country. The initiative will equip around 200 students with a market-focused skill set and make them future-ready.
“The eight weeks training program will start in June,” said the company.
The company’s initiative is aimed at imparting the student community with skills that will enhance their career prospects in the future. In return, the carmaker will also benefit from the creative and innovative ideas of the youth.
CollegeDekho will provide the ecosystem support for the screening test for MG Nurture program. It will have an industry-first, robotic selection process, assisted by another start-up EvueMe. The program also has a special attraction of providing few scholarships for higher studies.
As part of its inclusive philosophy, the ratio of males and females shortlisted will be 50:50 under the program.
“During these times, the MG Nurture Program enables us to reach out to students and empower them in being future-ready for the market. The program will start in June for a period of eight weeks and we will also look at providing job opportunities to some of the bright students thereafter,” said Rajeev Chaba, President & Managing Director – MG Motor India.
MG Nurture is the latest initiative in a series of programs that the automaker has undertaken to reinforce its commitment towards society and the community.
The company recently announced ‘Drive Her Back’, a unique program that enabled experienced and qualified women to return to the workplace with dignity and pride, creating a diverse pool of employees at MG in India.
