TCS Gives Hundreds of Scottish Students a Head-start in Tech

Posted On: 2018-10-10 12:14:08

Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS) a leading global IT services, consulting, and business solutions organisation, completed the second TCS Digital Explorers - Experience Work event in Scotland, giving almost 1000 local students aged 12-18, the opportunity to learn about careers in cutting edge technologies.

The event was an immersive mix of interactive workshops, masterclasses, keynotes, and panel discussions on topics such as coding, crypto-currency, and the Internet of Things (IoT). Digital Explorers saw experts from across the industry and TCS engaging with students and discussing industry opportunities and helping students navigate a world of possibilities in technology careers, including tailored CV workshops and interview training. Students also practiced their networking skills with representatives from Amazon, Skyscanner, IBM, RBS, Eqtr, and JP Morgan.

"The UK is facing a digital skills gap; and the education sector, government, and private sector need to work together to equip students with these skills and encourage them to pursue STEM careers," said Gopalan Rajagopalan, Head, TCS Scotland. "Scotland has a long tradition of innovation and creative thinking. The technology sector is an important part of Scotland's economic future and TCS is committed to bridging the skills gap and showing the next generation that jobs in the tech sector are rewarding and intellectually stimulating."

Yogesh Chauhan, Director, Corporate Sustainability, TCS UK, said, "I am thrilled at the passion, insights, and community spirit that the TCS Digital Explorers events have encouraged. We are highlighting possible careers in technology, helping young people imagine their place in the industry, and identify potential paths to getting there. We're very grateful to our IT industry partners for generously volunteering their time and to EDT for helping organise the event."

"We really enjoyed the code-breaking challenge. It was good to get the opportunity to work together as a team and practice our problem-solving skills," said a student who attended the event.

Alan McCurdy, a computer science teacher who attended the event, added, "We wanted to get the kids involved so they could get familiar with how business works and learn about the different areas in STEM. We have more girls here than boys, and we wanted to get the girls enthused about what's provided, especially today."

TCS Digital Explorers is part of TCS' wider IT Futures programme, which aims to nurture the IT talent of tomorrow, and focuses on young people in schools, colleges and universities, as well as their influencers -teachers, parents, and peers. Working closely with charities, social enterprises, and TCS employees, IT Futures has already reached 300,000-students directly since its launch in 2013, with participation from over 1600 TCS employee volunteers.
