TCS has recently launched a free 15-day program to boost the employability skills of youth. Named ‘TCS Ion Career Edge’ this program will train youth on basic communication skills, and foundational knowledge on Accounting, IT, and Artificial Intelligence over 14 modules.
Each module will last from 1-2 hours and consist of videos, reading material, webinars by TCS in-house experts, and self-assessment tests at end of the module. Students who pass the test will be provided with certification.
Lack of skills is a major hurdle for many fresh graduates. According to a 2021 report from India Skills, only 45.9% of graduates were found employable.
