Designed according to the curriculum proposed in National Digital Literacy Mission, the programme at the newly inaugurated centre is curated with modules such as English language training, personality development, vocational training, data entry, accountancy and Business Process Outsourcing under three verticals – Career Courses for students between 17 to 30 years of age, Skill Courses, and Digital and Financial Literacy modules for students who are 14 years and above. 


Commenting on the launch of the Centre, Dr. Sumit Mitra, CEO – Tesco Business Services & Tesco Bengaluru said, “As a leader in the retail space for over a 100 years, Tesco has always prioritized community outreach and development of future generation. At Tesco Bengaluru, education is the one of the focus areas of our CSR programme and we are creating and enhancing opportunities for youth to improve their livelihood through skill building & training programmes. 


With this career Community Development Centre, we aim to address the issues concerning the burgeoning youth unemployment in India and skills-gap in the retail, IT/ITES sectors. We are honoured to be partnering with Nasscom Foundation for this endeavour. We look forward to working with them to expand the impact and reach of the programme over the next few years.” 


In line with the CDC’s focus on delivering skill based training, the first batch comprises of 12 – 15 students to maintain a fair student-teacher ratio. 


Mr. Ashok Pamidi, CEO, NASSCOM Foundation said, “Having trained over 1 lakh people on digital literacy, NASSCOM Foundation through this centre is trying to go beyond making people digitally equipped to make them employable in a digital economy.”  


With the opening of the CDC, Tesco Bengaluru and NASSCOM Foundation hope to also enrol girl students from the communities who can equally benefit from the programme. 


Commenting on the same, Mr. Pamidi further added, “Our digital literacy centres across India have seen an encouraging 60:40 female to male ratio in trainees. We hope that this continues with the CDC too and further, helps our objective to make more women employable. We want to thank TESCO for helping bridge the skills gap at the bottom of the pyramid and would urge more organizations to come forward to support the cause.”
