Tata Motors in association with Nettur Technical Training Foundation (NTTF), on Tuesday, launched the 'National Employability Enhancement Mission (NEEM) - a nationwide skills enhancement initiative of Government of India.
This initiative offers 2 year - certificate programme in automobile manufacturing, under the aegis of AICTE. Under the initiative, Tata Motors will bear all the expenses of training cost, fees of the selected candidates during the period of training.
NTTF will provide technical inputs over two years and hand hold the youth to be industry ready.
"We are keen to see the Indian industry becoming globally competitive with Tata Motors playing a significant role. Our focus is to create a right set of talent pool for the Automobile industry and to promote employability through on-the-job training. The NEEM program, keeping in line with Indian Government's 'Make in India' initiative and our commitment to development of the local communities, will focus on building up the technical skill levels of fresh students and create industry-ready, skilled candidates", said Gajendra Chandel, Chief Human Resources Officer, Tata Motors.
Commenting on the association, N Reguraj, Managing Director, NTTF, said, "The apparent learning curve between the education imparted and imbibing on-ground skills, results in a void when it comes to hiring fresh talent by the industry. Hence, it is imperative to have programs like NEEM which provides technical training and enhances skill development by giving right kind of exposure and knowledge to candidates."
The course is designed into two parts - technical orientation delivered through class room sessions and on-the-job training in the company's Dharwad plant.
