Additional Skill Acquisition Programme (ASAP)

Kerala is an undertaking of the Higher Education Department of the Kerala Government that focusses on training students and the general population with skills that improve their employability.. ASAP is an initiative that works with a passionate drive towards equipping the youth of Kerala for the highly demanding industrial roles of today and the future. This student-centered programme works with different industrial sectors to design and update curriculums that inculcate desirable skill sets and qualities to the students to develop a pool of industry ready candidates. ASAP modules that encompass training methods to impart and enhance communication and IT skills to students also bring into its ambit an array of industry skills to be trained in, thereby leveling the unaligned terrains of our educational system and other employment platforms. ASAP could rightly be phrased as a thoughtful antidote to the malady of increasing unemployment that currently alarms our state. Since inception in 2012, ASAP has trained over One and a half lakh students in various skill sectors.
