Description

What is Internshala Virtual Training Centre (VTC)?

Internshala Virtual Training Centre (VTC - http://vtc.internshala.com/) is a state of the art online training portal which aims to deliver quality training on industry relevant skills to students all over India at an affordable cost. Think of it as Coursera but heavily customized and designed for Indian context.

Built on the idea that students coming out of our colleges today lack the necessary practical skills that industry demands and hence, suffer in their career. Current alternatives in form of brick and mortar training centres are expensive, inaccessible to students in remote areas, and the quality of the training is questionable. VTC aims to disrupt this by making smart use of technology to deliver quality education online where students can learn any real world skill even in the remotest corner of the country as per a schedule that is convenient to them.

Launched in summer 2013, VTC currently offers 3 trainings and the user response has been overwhelmingly positive (70%+ students rate VTC trainings as ‘Awesome’). We now intend to scale this to hundreds of courses and millions of users over next 2-3 years.

Internships that matter.At the core of the idea is the belief that internships, if managed well, can make a positive difference to the student, to the employer, and to the society at large. Hence, the ad-hoc culture surrounding internships in India should and would change. Internshala aims to be the...
