Skill Building Programs

IT-enabled drafting for ITI Students

Objective:

Employability for students in the ITI courses

Program execution:

Independent program conducted by TCE employees

Computer aided design (CAD) and mechanical drafting are entry level skills that are core to our design engineering services. Several technical institutes in India have the draftsman trade in their curriculum. These courses are taken up by youngsters who cannot afford regular skill building programs. However these trades do not involve computer and IT applications. This skill gap which makes the youngsters enrolled in the government-supported ITI programs more employable is met with our unique Draftsman Design Application course as a CSR & Affirmative Action initiative.

TCEndeavour's Affirmative Action program to provide education and employability is designed to impart practical knowledge in TCE's core expertise. This program will help increase employability of SC/ST students with requisite qualifications. The plan is to provide training in IT drafting applications for 2nd year SC/ST students in the ITI draftsman trade. The program comprises three levels of training – Basic, Advanced & Specialist with a certification at the end of each level.

The pilot program is presently running in Bangalore and Chennai as a series of weekend courses. The TCEndeavour Champs

Volunteered to serve as Trainers. The students found the program extremely relevant as the training filled a skill gap in their regular ITI program. The students in Bangalore requested a fast-track course and completed the basic program in time for their ITI campus job interview schedules. The basic course covers the basics in AUTOCAD drafting application. This will provide students an edge over others in the campus recruitments.

The advanced course entails detailed application orientation that will help students qualify for apprenticeships in the industry. The specialist programs will involve training in piping, electrical and aspects of detailed design engineering. Students will be provided a certificate once they complete and qualify at each phase of the program. The basic course for the students in the pilot program is complete and some students found placements in the industry. The program will be extended to other locations in a phased manner.
