This CSR initiative aimed at women’s empowerment will skill 763 candidates at the centre set up at a college in Gurugram

Telecom Sector Skill Council (TSSC) recently announced that it has collaborated with SBI Cards & Payment Services Ltd. for placement-linked skill development courses. Aimed at the livelihood-enhancement of female students, TSSC has unveiled a Telecom Centre of Excellence (CoE) at the Government College for Girls in Sector-14, Gurugram. The project, which is a CSR initiative for women empowerment, will skill 763 candidates over the span of two years.

Notably, the CoE was inaugurated by Haryana CM Shri Manohar Lal Khattar last week. The centre houses theory classrooms, practical labs, hybrid labs and an exclusive language centre for enhancing industry-oriented vocational and soft skills. The centre is set to provide National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF) and National Curriculum Framework (NCF) aligned short-term courses in telecom service job roles. This project under TSSC’s Livelihood Enhancement and Promotion (LEAP) Program intends to impart basic and intermediate skills for upcoming and legacy telecom courses.

The main objective of this program is to impart confidence and competence to candidates in telecom trades. It will help support the rising demand for service, manufacturing, and retail job roles, while also supporting the local talent in Haryana. The project was undertaken with support from the Government Girls College and the Haryana CSR Trust which functions for the successful completion of the project.

Arvind Bali, CEO of Telecom Sector Skill Council said, “The CSR project under this collaboration will be a pertinent boost in skilling the female youth and help them inculcate the spirit of self-reliance to explore ‘new job roles. TSSC has always been on the forefront of skilling/upskilling/reskilling the youth talent to make them job ready and this crucial partnership with SBICards for CSR is yet another step forward to drive equality of opportunity for women and empower them.”

Rama Mohan Rao Amara, MD & CEO, SBI Card commented, “India is already a hotspot of potential youth talent, and as a growing institution, we are doing our share to improve the status of women in the workforce. We are confident that this collaboration with TSSC will benefit women candidates in Haryana and assist them in moving beyond theoretical courses to become job ready. This is a one-year partnership, and we believe it will add to the momentum of initiatives already underway by the government and various companies to attract more female talent to the industry.”

Telecom Sector Skill Council is an industry-led apex body, a not-for-profit organization, committed to developing a world-class skilled workforce for the telecom industry. It believes in ‘sourcing locally and placing globally’ through high-quality skill development. The organization is a collaboration between the Cellular Operators Association of India, India Cellular & Electronics Association and the National Skill Development Corporation.
