Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), has announced a partnership between its strategic unit; TCS iON, and the Automotive Skill Development Council (ASDC) to reimagine and scale ASDC’s initiatives to identify potential candidates, equip them with the necessary skills, and match them with appropriate job opportunities in the auto sector. This collaboration is expected to bring various value propositions for ASDC such as standardization of processes, digital affiliation and audit trails for better control and integration.
ASDC is embarking on this transformation with the active support from Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), the Automotive Component Manufacturers Association (ACMA), and the Federation of Automobile Dealers Association (FADA).
TCS iON will closely work with the Skill Council to understand the dynamic workforce requirements of the industry and accordingly develop classroom and digital learning modules based on its unique ‘Phygital’ Learning Methodology. The Digital Assessment Platform will help conduct knowledge and skill assessments and an intelligent algorithm will carefully match the skilled youth to the right jobs, at speed and scale.
“We are pleased to be associated with ASDC to digitally reimagine their training, skilling, and placement initiatives. Our digital learning, assessment and process management platforms will help impart skills at scale and address an important national priority, which is to create a skilled workforce and generate employment,” said Venguswamy Ramaswamy, Global Head, TCS iON. “This partnership between TCS iON and ASDC sets a precedent and serves as a role model for all the other sector Skill Councils in the country, which is looking to make a meaningful impact.”
Nikunj Sanghi, Chairman, ASDC, said, “We at ASDC are very excited about our partnership with TCS iON. Their expertise in skilling, coupled with industry-leading digital technology prowess will enable us to achieve our purpose of continually developing and upgrading Automotive Skills through skilling and up-skilling. This endeavour will focus on creating an automated digital assessment process, a digital learning hub, and a listing platform for jobs and candidates.”
