Gurugram, Nov 29 (KNN) With the aim to provide placement-linked skill development courses, the Telecom Sector Skill Council (TSSC) on Monday signed an agreement with SBI Cards and Payment Services to develop a telecom centre of excellence (CoE) at the Government College for Girls Gurugram.
The CoE is being launched under the CSR initiative for women empowerment. The centre is set to provide National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF) and National Curriculum Framework (NCF) aligned short-term courses in telecom service job roles, an official statement said.
Under this partnership, TSSC will provide training to 763 women over the next two years.

This crucial partnership with SBI Cards for CSR is yet another step forward to drive equality of opportunity for women and empower them," TSSC CEO Arvind Bali said.
