July 19, 2022

Kerala IT Parks is all set to offer internship opportunities to fresh graduates in the state. The IGNITE Internship Programme will begin in August 2022 by associating with companies from the three major IT parks in the state, Technopark Thiruvananthapuram, Infopark Kochi, and Cyberpark Kozhikode.

Finance Minister K.N Balagopal will inaugurate the pilot launch of the internship programme on Thursday, July 21 at 4.30 PM at Technopark Travancore Hall. Former Minister, and Kazhakkoottam MLA Kadakampally Surendran will preside over the function. Kerala IT Parks CEO John M. Thomas will welcome the gathering. APJ Abdul Kalam Technological University Vice Chancellor Dr. Rajasree M.S, GTech Secretary Sreekumar V and Kerala Startup Mission CEO Anoop Ambika will felicitate the gathering. ICT Academy of Kerala CEO Santhosh C Kurup will deliver the vote of thanks.

Kerala IT Parks CEO John M Thomas says, ‘The internship programme is a collaboration between the government and private sector to address shortage of adequately trained people in the IT/ ITeS sector in Kerala. The government had allocated Rs 20 crores in the Kerala Budget 2022 – 2023 and envisaged the internship programme for skill development. In the first phase, Kerala IT Parks is planning to provide internships for 1500 candidates under the programme, which is beneficial for both companies as well as youth. The government will contribute Rs. 5000 per month to an intern and the recruiting company will provide at least the same amount every month in the six-month internship programme. Companies participating in the internship programme can select interns via online portal and through internship fairs organised by IT Parks.”

Candidates will get an opportunity to undertake an internship with companies in Technopark, Infopark, and Cyberpark, startup companies under KSUM and companies vouched by CAFIT/ GTech in the initial phase of the pilot programme. Fresh graduates and candidates awaiting their final year results are eligible to apply for the internship. Interested candidates will have to register and appear for companies’ recruitment process.
