TCS, British Council ink training pact

Sat 14 Nov 2015, 10:00:21

Mumbai: Indian IT services giant Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has partnered with the British Council, and decided to train 1,000 British university graduates at its Innovation Labs and software development centres across India.

Between 2016 and 2020, 1,000 new internships will take place, and will be managed jointly by the British Council and TCS.

Each internship will last 12 months, and give graduates from British universities an opportunity to work for TCS in India, where they will receive training in the technical and commercial skills needed for a career in software development, global consulting, business process management or human resources. This new commitment is a part of TCS’ wider investment in training for its workforce, with over 1,00,000 employees being trained in emerging digital technologies this year alone, the company said.

With employment opportunities in the UK’s IT sector set to grow at almost twice the British average employment rate between now and 2020, according to the Tech Partnership, the Social Market Foundation has predicted that the UK faces a shortfall in domestic supply of around 40,000 graduates in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics each year.

The new TCS-British Council partnership aims to address this challenge by helping foster the next generation of digital talent in the UK and provide British employers with the graduates they will need to succeed in the future, TCS said.
