Sep 20: Tech major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) on Thursday said that it has entered into a strategic business partnership with The Training Room, a leading UK provider of technical training courses and careers support.
According to an official statement, The Training Room will leverage the TCS iON Digital Learning Hub to provide a platform for UK and international students seeking skills and technical courses and for employers looking for dynamic solutions for recruitment, in-house training, and staff retention.
TCS iON provides the backbone for delivering skills in a ‘Phygital model’, where trainers and physical classrooms are combined with digital technology to give students access to quality, educational content anywhere, any time, and on any device. The Training Room will roll out an enhanced version of its own courses on the new platform, starting with health and fitness and personal training courses, followed by IT courses. The platform will also host content from many other educational and professional institutions covering a vast range of work-related learning opportunities.
Andrew Powell, CEO of The Training Room, said, “our mission is to help young and unemployed people develop skills, connect with employers and grow their careers. Until now, we’ve been training some 4,000 young people a year and providing them with one-on-one careers mentoring to get them into jobs with our network of blue-chip corporate partners across the UK. TCS iON’s extraordinary technology will deliver a step-change in our skills development programme: more courses, more connections, and more people enjoying fulfilling careers not just in the UK but internationally.”
