ESDECS is a social enterprise which works across the spectrum of School Readiness to Job Readiness with a special focus on underserved customer segment(s). In West Bengal where ESDECS operates,as per World Bank Report, total enrolment in secondary grades (class 9-12) was 3.4 Mn in 2010-11& in 2012 enrolment in Higher Education was 0.2 Mn which reflects massive drop out with only 10-11% of youth reported having received any form of vocational training. There is significant gap in the institutional mechanism to reach out to this youth segment, address their need and create a pathway to make them employable.

Through E2E Plus training intervention, ESDECS connect high school pass/drop out students to the job market who do not pursue higher education and run the risk of becoming unemployed. This is done in partnership with State Government & our partner organization Vikramshila through a unique skills@school solution termed as Education to Employability (E2E). E2E sets the platform by honing basic employability capacity of Class 9-12 students through career focused life skills. Using E2E as a springboard, ESDECS identifies, screens, trains and places Class 12 pass/dropout students through its E2E Plus training solution leveraging government infrastructure & policy support. ESDECS have already trained and placed 150 such youth identified from school system and have provided them with firm placement linkages. ESDECS' current aim is to train and place another 100 such job seeking youth coming out from high school system in the current fiscal who run the risk of becoming unemployed due to lack of skills and market linkages. 


The per trainee cost for providing placement-linked training is Rs 10,000/-, break-up of which is:

1. Candidate Mobilization & Screening Cost: Rs 1000/-

2. Training Rollout Cost (Materials, venue, trainers): Rs 4000/-

3. Board & Lodge Charges: Rs 3000/-

4. Assessment & Certification Cost: Rs 1000/-

5. Placement & Tracking Cost: Rs 1000/-
