New Delhi: UK's Northampton Business School has tied up with Vijyoti Ltd, a capacity development firm for employability-readiness and leadership skills, for providing country-specific employability certification program.

The new venture will be called Northampton University-Vijyoti Employability Development Pvt Ltd (NBSVED), the university said in a statement.

"This new venture with Vijyoti enables us to create a platform that bridges the gap between academia and industry, and accelerates corporate productivity, globally," University of Northampton's Business School Executive Dean Ian Brooks said in the statement.

The innovative course structure and content is flexible, and can be delivered from short-term interventions (two weeks intensive) to up to one year.

"Though this partnership, our objective is to work towards harnessing the largest working population and work towards building the largest employable workforce in the world," Vijyoti Managing Director Vijay Pande said.

NBSVED certified teachers along with experienced facilitators from overseas will work in sync to expose participants to ideas and mindset for local adoption, thus, creating bridges between young talent and the experienced business world outside.
