Hinduja Global Solutions (HGS) and NASSCOM Foundation have launched a training center with an aim to make Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) skilled for job roles and make them industry ready. The center will train a minimum of 100 PwDs in the NCR region over the next 12 months, with a target of placing at least 50% of them in companies already sensitized to accommodate them.
The trainees will be skilled in a variety of job roles suitable for IT/BPM, Hospitality and Retail industries, along with soft skills, interview skills, communication skills, English language training etc. Efforts have been made to ensure that the center is accessible not just in terms of physical accessibility but also through technology and follows the principles of Universal design of learning. Training will be conducted using the best accessible technology and training methodologies.
HGS is supporting this cause as part of their CSR agenda. Centum will be the training partner for this initiative and has vast experience in conducting training programs for PwDs and others from marginalized backgrounds. NASSCOM Foundation will be the overall owner of the initiative ensuring the maximum impact.
