Observing the ‘World Youth Skills Day’ today, Tech Mahindra Foundation has announced the addition of their latest Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for Digital Media in Hyderabad.
The Academy aims to help bridge the existing skill gap in the sector through its Foundation Skills Course (English, Basic IT & Soft Skills) and Technical Skills Courses pertaining to this sector.
The courses planned include six-month certificate courses on Graphic & Web Design, Animation, Digital Marketing, Web Development, and Logistics & Supply Chain Management. The curriculum, says Tech Mahindra, is also designed to include internship opportunities for practical on-the-job training at established industries. This will help students hone the skills they have learned in the Academy and also understand the job requirements of the digital media& logistics sectors.
CP Gurnani, MD & CEO, Tech Mahindra, said, “Reskilling is the need of the hour. In an innovation-driven world, those unable to keep pace with change would either be lost in the flux or adapt under stress. Choice is in our hands to make India skill-full and prosperous together. Tech Mahindra Foundation’s new Digital Media Academy in Hyderabad is a continuation of our efforts to bridge the skill gap present in the industry today, and build a digital workforce for the future.”
Nestled within the Tech Mahindra Secunderabad campus, the Academy is planned to spread across 5000 square feet of area, furnished with 3 classrooms, 3 labs equipped with the latest software and computer systems.
Scheduled to be open for admissions later this year, Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for Digital Media in Hyderabad expects to enable youth to become job-ready for the new age careers in digital media.
