The MoU was signed by Raj Reddy, EVP & Chief Delivery Officer-Global, CSS Corp and M. Sivakumar, CEO, ICTACT, to launch the CSS Corp Skill+Outreach programme. The objective will be to improve employability of students in the State.
The programme, a part of CSS Corp’s corporate social responsibility, will train students in soft and technical skills. They will be periodically assessed on knowledge, skill and other abilities required for employment. This will benefit final year students in arts and science colleges and engineering colleges in and around Chennai. Around 500 students are to be trained by June 2014, the release said.
Students will be provided with free access to CSS online training portal “Techcareer” to pursue the courses and will also have to attend classroom training, the release said.
