Enhancing EmployabilityEnhancing Employability

The intent at Tata STRIVE has always been to provide holistic training to our students, thereby helping them transition into the workplace seamlessly. To make this possible, our curriculum, doesn’t just offer training for domain skills, it also addresses the need to acquire soft skills such as grit and determination, growth mindset, communication skills, etc. Our curriculum also includes fungible skills like financial literacy, critical reasoning etc. Collectively these modules are referred to as “Youth Development Programme” – which is offered standalone in various programs as well. These modules are taught through activity-based learning or experiential learning, thereby making them more effective.

Create Career Awareness and CounselCreate Career Awareness and Counsel

Tata STRIVE has from the start promoted the need for informed career choices being made. Picture-based games and digital tools enable the individual to understand their aptitudes which, along with counselling, helps them make the right career choices. When there is a personality–job fit, there are greater chances of students staying on the job

Tata STRIVE designed its career counselling offering in a unique way to capture the interest of an individual. We have a picture-based, gamified, language-agnostic, and customisable career assessment solution to help the youth make informed career choices. Coupled with this assessment are career discovery videos offering a view of the world of work. This gives them a realistic perspective of a particular job role and provides clarity, thereby helping them make informed career choices. Counselling services through chatbots or with a human interface were value additions made to the offering as a complete solution. Tata STRIVE intends to market this offering widely. This tool is already adopted by West Bengal government for helping their youth make informed career choices.
