They provide special skill development programs with job placements for all students from their adopted government schools
National : Embassy Group, in a cumulated effort to chalk the career paths of govt. school students has introduced a unique FM skill development program for all students from its adopted government schools. Upon completion of the four-month course in various verticals of Facility Management, the students will also find job placements at TCFM.
TCFM (Technique Control Facility Management) – a 100% subsidiary of Embassy services, the Integrated Facility Management arm of the Embassy Group, currently employs over 7000 FM professionals across the country. Through this skilling program, it aims to provide more opportunity to the underprivileged as well as fill the demand for skilled professionals in the booming industry. Since the pandemic has forced companies to relook FM with more criticality, the need for skilled youngsters is also on the rise. In times where uncertainty is looming over the future of outbound students, this program can help them find employment in the booming FM sector.
Shaina Ganapathy, Head – Community Outreach Initiatives for Embassy Group said, “Embassy Group has been active in initiatives that are focused on students. We have adopted government schools for the very same reason – to provide quality opportunities to the next generation. This skill development program is designed considering the careers of the outbound students. This will not only carve a path for them in terms of jobs but also direct them towards an industry that has the potential to contribute towards their professional growth”
Anand GD, Chief Operating Officer, Technique Control Facility Management (TCFM) said, “Modern-day facility management has risen beyond limits to become an integral part of human sustenance. Considering that it is among the largest employers of blue-collar workers, professionalizing the sector and aiding employees with ESI, PF, etc. adds immense value to our people. Through this skilling program, we educate the students on the vast opportunities available to them and prove it by giving them job placements within our own organization. As more youngsters choose FM as a career path, there will be more surety on filling the demands of the organized FM sector.”
To create a strong network with the means of connecting students to opportunities after they pass out from school, the Embassy and its NGO Partner, Colours of Life, founded an alumni program in 2017 called the Colours of Life Academy (COLA). COLA was meant for students who have graduated, or left Embassy adopted Government Schools but would like assistance in terms of fees for higher studies, extra tuitions, mentorship, and career guidance. As part of the program, regular meetings and webinars are conducted to educate and counsel students on different options for their future careers, of which TCFM was a regular participant.
According to recent reports, there are an estimated 40 crores blue-collar and 15 crore white-collar workers in India. Through this program, Embassy Group and its partners hope to develop and help the next generation of blue-collar employees, contributing to the growth of the Indian economy through its upskilled workforce and closing any gaps in the educational journey of underprivileged students.
