So GetWork connected Headstrt to Manipal ProLearn (MPL). Manipal ProLearn is a division of Manipal Global Education Service (MaGE), Bangalore – a recognized institution name in India. MPL provides industry-relevant courses and certification for its users in a variety of domains. Coincidentally, they were also eager to find opportunities for their certified users.
