Bangalore, August, 2011: Bangalore-based PurpleLeap, the employability skills pioneer, has partnered with SAP Education India to train students in SAP software to develop skills for cutting edge results. This partnership is aimed at enabling students to gain access to and work on industry-leading software including Enterprise Resource Planning and SAP Business Objects software. The initiative is tailor-made to enhance employability of fresh graduates across various industries.
Being the world’s most widely used enterprise application software; SAP is used by over 12 million people over 120 countries. With the introduction of SAP software training in tier 2 and tier 3 city colleges, PurpleLeap intends to help students stand out in an extremely competitive marketplace. PurpleLeap will provide hands-on SAP training to students, thereby significantly increasing the resource pool of SAP software-trained professionals.
While there is an increasing demand for SAP-trained professionals across sectors in India, the supply trained graduates from tier 2 and tier 3 colleges doesn’t meet the quality criterion. With PurpleLeap’s SAP training programme being available across all its associate colleges, the employability factor is expected to boost.
Announcing this partnership, Mr. Amit Bansal, CEO, PurpleLeap said, “We are glad to be an academic training partner for SAP Software in India. Advanced tools such as ERP software are essential in preparing our students, especially in tier 2 and tier 3 cities, for the challenges they will face in an increasingly complex, challenging and global economy. We are confident that industry will find the SAP-certified graduates from these colleges immensely employable.”
Founded in 2007, PurpleLeap helps colleges produce quality talent for the industry. Today PurpleLeap is a Pearson-Educomp Company – with Pearson, the world's largest education company and Educomp, India's leading private enterprise in education, making strategic investments in the venture. PurpleLeap is thus able to leverage on Pearson’s expertise in training content and learning technology and Educomp’s expertise in delivering technology based learning solutions. PurpleLeap sets up Career Centres inside colleges and all programs are delivered at the college site itself, in a tech-enabled environment.
PurpleLeap works towards building professional skills among students gearing up for their first jobs. Across the varied programs offered, students undergo a unique and highly effective metric driven experiential learning cycle to build their technology application skills as well as high performance organizational skills like problem solving and communication.
