About SSA

KGiSL – Soft Skills Academy (SSA) was founded in 2013 to cater to the career and life skills development needs of KGiSL – Software division and KGiSL group of educational institutions. Under the vision and leadership of our Managing Director, Dr Ashok Bhakthavatsalam and the Secretary (educational institutions), Dr R Ravichandran, we have found the inspiration to tap our potential further and beyond.

To hone communication skills at SSA, we categorize our students based on four proficiency levels: Excellent, Proficient, Ideal and Capable, also known as EPIC. Students are trained with the objective of acquiring the Cambridge Business English Certificates (BEC): Preliminary & Vantage, depending on their proficiency levels.

We train our students to ace interviews and beyond with industry-specific campaign training that involves Quantitative aptitude, Verbal reasoning and Logical reasoning. Keeping pace with the ever evolving trends and requirements of the job industry, we focus on adapting to these trends and incorporating them into our training programs.

One of the primary goals of our Institution is to make the students industry -ready candidates. We assess the Students’ proficiency in Communication Skills and develop the skills required for a job. The Cambridge English language assessments revolve around CEFR level descriptors allow us to encourage students to reflect on their current learning in the setting of objectives and track their progress using level aims, which are matched to the requirement of the industry.

The purpose of Cambridge Exam Preparation Centre is to imparting English language training to the students and corporate employees in line with Cambridge Assessment English Examinations such as: Key English Test (KET), Cambridge Preliminary English Test (PET) and Cambridge B1 Business English Preliminary & B2 Vantage (BEC) models.

EPIC Categorization

We categorize our students / corporate employees into Excellent, Proficient, Ideal and Capable (EPIC) categories by gauging their English proficiency levels through a placement test. These various groups are trained in line with Cambridge syllabus models and are handled separately by trainers, who adopt a direct method of teaching in a target language. At every stage, we conduct an assessment to evaluate the students’ learning and progress to enable them to move to the next level.


Our premises have well-equipped laboratories along with auditoriums and conference halls, classrooms with LCD projectors and round-the-clock robust Wi-Fi connectivity. Classrooms are supported by both audio and video facilities to provide effective language learning and administer periodic assessments. We have conducted various placement tests, banking exams and Business English – Preliminary and Vantage exams at our premises.
