Improves access to Aspirants from Rural & Semi-urban Areas
Adds new facilities such as Video-on-Demand, Virtual Classes by Experts, and Mobile Learning
Chennai, 22nd May, 2013: TalentSprint, a pioneer in creating high performance professionals for Banking and IT sectors, has announced expansion plans for its flagship BankersChoice program that prepares young graduates for careers in the banking industry. To provide better access to aspirants from rural and semi-urban regions, TalentSprint will now extend BankersChoice through the Cloud and also offer virtual classes by experts, video-on-demand and mobile learning.
Further, BankersChoice will offer a platform for online examination practice with detailed analytical feedback that will enable aspirants to benchmark themselves relative to peers in an automated manner.
Addressing the media on the occasion, Dr. Santanu Paul, MD and CEO at TalentSprint said, “The banking sector is an aspirational category for Indian graduates. Nearly 50 lakh people appear for tests and less than 2% are successful. Fewer than 10% of the aspirants use any test preparation tools due to limited access to quality training in non-urban areas. We are pleased to introduce these new learning facilities so that more young people can benefit and participate irrespective of their location”.
Talking on the occasion, Mr. Ravi Menon, Senior Advisor, Banking and Financial Services, TalentSprint said, “Public Sector Banks are becoming aggressive employers. In next five years Indian Public Sector Banks alone will generate employment opportunity for 4-5 lakh graduates. However, given the level of competition it is important for aspirants to prepare themselves extensively for the exam and interview.”
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. K. Sridhar, Senior Vice President, Banking and Financial Services, TalentSprint said, “At TalentSprint, our endeavour is to equip our trainees with a huge advantage. We do this by combining best-of-breed knowledge of the banking industry with cutting-edge technology. Our objective is to complement our network of physical centers with effective use of the Cloud.”
TalentSprint had launched Bankers Choice - a comprehensive exam preparation program for IBPS/CWE recruitment, and has expanded its presence to cover all the states of South India. While investing in Cloud and virtual learning, the Company is also planning to expand its network of centers from the current 6 to around 50 through a combination of own centers and franchisees.
