As part of a unique initiative to promote ‘’Skill India Mission ‘’, Tata Motors and Automotive Skills Development Council (ASDC) certified the first batch of trainees under their collaborative skills development and certification program.
Introduced in 2016, the program is currently training around 4000 apprentices, out of which 166 trainees (94 boys and 72 girls) at Pune Plant of Tata Motors have been awarded the ASDC Certification in automotive assembly skills.
The trainees, after completion of their first-year training at Tata Motors’ skill development center were assessed through an online test, a practical examination and a viva conducted by the external ASDC nominated assessor.
Trainees that successfully passed these examinations were felicitated at a special function in the presence of top officials from Tata Motors and ASDC.
The first batch of trainees were awarded the ASDC certification in presence of Mr. Gajendra Chandel, Chief Human Resource Officer, Tata Motors, Mr. Satish Borwankar, Chief Operating Officer, Tata Motors and Mr. Sunil Chaturvedi, Chief Executive Officer, ASDC.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Gajendra Chandel, CHRO, Tata Motors, said, ‘’Today indeed is a very proud moment for us at Tata Motors, as first batch of ASDC certified trainees, graduate from the program that was diligently put together by Tata Motors Skills Development Center, in association with ASDC.
It’s a matter of great satisfaction to see a large batch of trainees, both girls and boys, mostly from rural areas and small towns who were inducted through ‘’Earn & Learn’’ mode under the ‘’National Employability Enhancement Mission (NEEM)’’ that’s part of Government’s Skill India mission.’’
