Beyond Scholarships

Employability Skills

About the program

The Comprehensive Skills Training Program at FFE is implemented over a 3-year period to identify and bridge the gap between curriculum and Industry expectations. This has brought a major impact on the development of interpersonal and Industry required technical skills of scholars thus enabling a smooth transition from Campus to Corporate.

From the year 2017, FFE engineering scholars go through the intensive Beyond scholarship program that focuses on communication, logical and analytical skills, technical upskilling, and areas to work on for the recruitment process – handling Interviews and written tests.

The placements’ quality and pace have improved from pre- to post skilling intervention. The Avg. Salaries of the batches doubled post skilling interventions and also students acquiring jobs with better compensation were observed.

Employability Assessments

Employability assessment is a 3rd party vendor assessment that evaluates scholars based on your skills and your readiness to join the Corporate Workforce. This is an AI-based computer adaptive test which evaluates job applicants on critical areas like communication skills, logical reasoning, quantitative skills, and job-specific domain skills thus helping recruiters identify the suitability of a candidate for different job roles.

Scholars are offered the AMCAT assessments at the end of 1st year, 2nd year, and 3rd year as Baseline, Midline, and Endline assessments. Every module of the assessment has a cut off based on the industry standards, and scholars who fall below the cut off are given the necessary trainings. At the end of 1st year, scholars take the Baseline assessment that identifies those who needs improvement in English/ Aptitude or both programs. Towards the end of 2nd year, post the English and Aptitude interventions, scholars take up the Midline assessment to check if they have improved in Communication & Aptitude skills. At the end of 3rd year, right before placements, scholars take the Endline assessments to gear up for campus recruitments.

Students take 3 Mock interviews- 2 Technical interviews & 1 HR interview where industry experts interview scholars to give an insight into the expectations of the industry from a fresher.

Technical Skilling

Coursera

A major gap has been observed between the Engineering curriculum in Colleges and Industry expectations. Considering the limited job opportunities in the core sector (Mechanical, Electrical, and Civil Engineering), FFE scholars will benefit greatly through training by Coursera to technical modules
