McGraw-Hill EDUCATION offers comprehensive career training program

McGraw-Hill Education launched a professional development certification program in India to provide the 21st Century skills and knowledge necessary for a career in India’s retail industry. By combining real-world instruction, on-the-job training with leading retailers and job placement assistance for every student, the Certificate Course in Retail Sales and Service ensures participants are ‘job ready’ upon completion. The 100-hour program will be offered by Tata McGraw-Hill, a joint venture between Tata, India’s most admired business group, and McGraw-Hill Education, a global leader in education publishing and services. To ensure industry relevance and practical instruction, the course was developed with the guidance of a panel of industry experts including training and human resources managers, instructors teaching similar courses, and successful retail executives who started their careers as entry-level employees.  “McGraw-Hill Education aims to empower students worldwide with the skills they need to compete in the global economy. By generating positive learning outcomes through career and professional services training in emerging economies, we are filling an important need,” said Peter C. Davis, President of McGraw-Hill Education.  “As Tata McGraw-Hill expands its Educational Services offerings, we strive to deliver world-class learning solutions to enable students to gain the skills needed to enter and succeed in the job market, instructors to teach effectively and employers to hire successfully,” said Ajay Shukla, Managing Director, Tata McGraw-Hill. “It is estimated that over 50 percent of youth in the Indian labour force are currently underemployed because of a skill deficit. Addressing this gap with the development of content and end-to-end programs that produce workforce-ready students is essential in emerging markets like India.”
