Job Roles and Qualification Packs
SSC NASSCOM aims to scale quality capacity, with a larger talent pool for the industry and have greater alignment between industry occupational requirements and aptitude of the appearing candidates. To fulfill its key purpose, after detailed functional analysis, SSC NASSCOM has identified job roles in various service verticals, such as, IT Services, Engineering and R&D, Software Products and Business Process Management (BPM) etc.
National Occupational Standards (NOS) or Occupational Standards (OS) defines one key function in a job role. NOS specify the standard of performance an individual must achieve when carrying out a function in the workplace. These Occupational Standards are combined to a set, which is called Qualification Pack (QP).
Qualification Pack certifies a person for a specific job role. Each Qualification Pack also contains NVEQF Level, which will theoretically make it possible to drive competency based training for every Entry Level job role in the IT-BPM industry. These packs are marked with a NVEQF level, such as level 7. The Qualification Packs help in both the creation of curriculum and assessments.
