A unit of Tata Consultancy Services, TCS iON, has now partnered with the national-level apex advisory and regulatory body for technical education, All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) to provide students with the digital learning course. This initiative is done inorder to equip students with career skills and make them industry ready for the future.
TCS iON has curated a free, 20 hour-career skills course which will cover topics such as corporate etiquette, effective e-mail writing, impactful presentations and IT awareness. This course will be available to the students throughout the duration of their degree course.
The course will be available for students of more than 10,000 AICTE approved institutions. It can be accessed on TCS iON Digital Learning Hub through any device. Through the partnership, TCS, together with educational institutions, intends to help students enhance their career skills.
Last year TCS selected 63,000 students from over 2.8 lakh applicants through its National Qualifier Test. However, it could extend offer letters to only about 30,000. Many of those not selected lacked these career skills. With this programme, TCS intends to enhance the quality of the students so that they become industry ready post their graduation.Posted in Corporate, News
