MG Motor India has announced the MG Nurture Program, which it says is a first-of-its-kind student support program that focuses on training students as part of the OEMs commitment to give back to the society. The initiative will equip around 200 students with a market-focused skill set and make them future-ready.

The company says in these testing and extended lockdown times, MG Motor India’s initiative is aimed at imparting the student community with skills that will enhance their career prospects in future. In return, the carmaker will also benefit from the creative and innovative ideas of the country’s youth. Under the initiative MG Motor will introduce ‘CollegeDekho’ programme, which will provide the ecosystem support for the screening test for MG Nurture program. It will have an industry-first, robotic selection process, assisted by another start-up EvueMe. The program also has a special attraction of providing few scholarships for higher studies.

Speaking on the initiative, Rajeev Chaba, president and MD, MG Motor India said: “During these times, the MG Nurture Program enables us to reach out to students and empower them in being future-ready for the market. The program will start from June for a period of eight weeks and we will also look at providing job opportunities to some of the bright students thereafter. The initiative has been launched for giving an immersive learning experience to students and creating a forward-looking talent pool in our country.”

MG Nurture is the latest initiative in a series of programs that the automaker has undertaken to reinforce its commitment towards society and community. As part of its inclusive philosophy, the ratio of males and females shortlisted will be 50:50 under the program.
