Flipkart launches digital academy for skill training
Walmart-owned Flipkart has launched a digital learning academy to help students get trained in the supply chain and logistics sector.
The Supply Chain Operations Academy (SCOA) will provide relevant industry training and knowledge to help create a pool of skilled supply chain operations talent in the country.
The training programme under SCOA will involve 15 days of digital classroom training and 45 days of on-the-job apprenticeship at Flipkart supply chain facilities.
Commenting on the initiative, Hemant Badri Flipkart’s senior vice-president and head of the supply chain in a statement said: “As one of the fastest-growing nations in the world with a significant proportion of the working population, India can unlock its potential through large-scale skilling and upskilling initiatives to reap the benefits of its demographic dividend.”
“Flipkart is at the forefront of developing the necessary skill sets in candidates to enhance their employability and complement the nation’s growth. Having created one of the most tech-enabled modern supply chains in the country, there is an urgent need to bridge the skill gaps in the industry and Flipkart aims to solve this challenge through the SCOA,” he added.
Flipkart’s SCOA training programme will begin on October 22 with students from Haryana, Bihar, Delhi, Jharkhand, Punjab, Rajasthan, and West Bengal.
