MUMBAI -- Pasona Group will help Indian students pursue careers at local Japanese-owned manufacturing companies through a training and recruitment service it will launch next month with a local vocational school.

Under a partnership with the Nettur Technical Training Foundation, the Tokyo-based staffer's Indian unit aims to place about 1,000 new hires at Japanese manufacturers over a year starting next month.

Pasona India will mostly advise students majoring in mechanical and electrical engineering. It aims to assist students with skills such as interviewing, resume writing and how to succeed in a Japanese corporate environment.

Established in 1963, NTTF trains about 18,000 students across India at more than 20 different campuses. The Bangalore-based educator offers technical training programs in subjects such as mechanical and electrical engineering, mechatronics and information technology.

Schools operated by NTTF will adopt a curriculum based on a bilateral skills transfer agreement signed by Japan and India.

Earlier this month, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi agreed to cooperate on skills development in the manufacturing sector. Japanese-backed Maruti Suzuki India, the country's biggest carmaker, and Osaka-based air conditioner manufacturer Daikin Industries are among the companies that have opened institutes in India under the bilateral program.
