Schaeffler India and Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) have collaborated to provide job-related skills training to students.


TISS will implement a National University Students' Skill Development (NUSSD) programme  to provide skill training to 350 graduating students from Vadodara  in Gujarat to enable them to better understand and enhance their skills.


According to a Memorandum of Understanding  (MoU), the programme will cover training in eight diploma courses — Banking & Financial Markets, Export & Import Management, Hospital Management Services, Entrepreneurship, Digital Marketing, Travel and Tourism, Pharmautical  Sales Management and Retail Management.


The S elected students will get classroom training for around 4-6 months at the Schaeffler HOPE NUSSD Training Centres established in three colleges including Savitaben Chunibhai Patel Fartikuwala Commerce College in Dabhoi, Smt. H C Patel Arts and Commerce College, Miyagam Karjan  and M.M Gandhi Arts & Commerce College, Kalol. They will later be sent to relevant industries for internships or on-the-job-training for 40 days. 


The curriculum aims to empower 300 students through wage employment and remaining 50 students through Startup Community or Entrepreneurship Development.
