Location

Kerala, South

In the state of Kerala, there is a need to make career opportunities visible to young people and through our courses we are enabling youth to make informed career and life decisions. 

About

To impact young people in the 18 – 25 age group, Quest Alliance has partnered with training centres and institutes to provide career-centred guidance and mentorship.

To equip trainers, we are working closely with Industrial Training Institutes and Government institutes in their training spaces. Our aim is to expand on the work accomplished with industrial training institutes and the Government sector by providing training opportunities to strengthen trainers, and career counselling to equip young people.

Vision 2020

The Kerala Vision 2020 is to impact 20,000 youth by helping training organisations and facilitators create and offer them real-world work experiences, enabling young people to make informed life and career decisions.

The medium of doing so will be through blended learning curriculum such as digital sessions, classroom sessions, workbooks, outdoor activities, exposure to the world of work and self-assessments. 

Need and Strategy

In Kerala, nearly 30% of the population can be categorised as ‘youth.’ The youth here play a critical role in taking the state forward in all respects. Despite having strong human development indicators, the skilling sector is yet to evolve itself into a robust system. This is where Quest plays a crucial role in creating a focused, systematic intervention.

This focused intervention will be done using a variety of blended learning materials and strategies to help recreated work experiences at the training centres, such as sustained and planned industry exposure activities, outbound projects, self assessments and a variety of blended learning curriculum to begin early adoption of technology at the workplace.
