SSRDP’s Access to Employability Programme has already reached around 69,000 students in more than 200 colleges in 17 states, providing classes on interview skills, spoken English, personal grooming and soft skills, advanced computer training and job-specific technical trainings.

ENTREPRENEURSHIP DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME (EDP)

With support from corporate partners, SSRDP provides Entrepreneurship Development Programme (EDP) to ensure that those who have completed skill trainings can also create proper business plans to run their own enterprises successfully.
