~Empowers 1,170 youth with vocational and service industries skills training initiative~
Maharashtra, May 16, 2018: Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power company, has always been a pioneer in the comprehensive development of youth living in and around its operational areas. In continuation with the philosophy, Tata Power Community Development Trust (TPCDT) launched the Employability-Kaushal Vikas Program in Maval and Bhivpuri to enhance the skills of rural youth and help them get a job placement in the nearby Industries and market. Within three years of its launch, the program has trained and certified 1,170 youths for vocational and service industries skills.
The objective of this program was to benefit youth with a flexible approach of learning while earning as most of them are involved in labor work on a daily basis. Through the Modular Employable Skills Training Program, TPCDT provided them with practical training and theoretical knowledge by expert faculty for at least 300 -750 hours depending on the course.
Five rural employability centres were established in the rural lake catchment area and nearby plant to enhance the accessibility. These centres were established under the ‘Kaushal Vikas Yojana’ scheme aimed at training the youth of the region, to be employed and self-reliant. 70% youth trained succeeded in securing placements with a monthly salary ranging from 6000 PM to 18000 PM in firms like KSPG Engineering, Mahindra & Mahindra, TVS Company, Intel Electronics, Kamshet and Lonavla region, Amazon back end office; IMAGICA, Pinewood Resort in Karjat and Khopoli region etc.
Talking about the initiative, Ashok Sethi, COO & Executive Director, Tata Power, said, “We, at Tata Power have always laid special emphasis on youth development programs. The establishment of the employability centres under the Kaushal Vikas Yojana is our way of reinforcing our commitment towards the youth of our society. The developmental program has benefitted 1,170 youths in the region in providing them with training and certificates and have encouraged thousands in participating in such programs in future. We will strive hard in improving their lives with such interventions and be a part of the journey of success for our communities at large.”
Under this program, youth in Maval & Bhivpuri region are trained in various trades like electrical wireman, Domestic Home appliances, Health assistant, Hotel management, Micro Office specialist, CNC Machine operator, Beauty parlour expert, financial accounting and many more. The enrolled students are provided with certification from recognized institutes/ vocational board such as Maharashtra State Board of Vocational Education, Maharshtra Tilak Vidyapeeth, ICE, Navi Mumbai, CIT and many more.
