SEESHA-Tech Mahindra SMART Training Centre

This project is aimed to equip, employ and empower school dropouts and youth from downtrodden communities.

A number of youngsters today remain unemployable due to lack of quality education and skill-based expertise. Addressing this concern, SEESHA has joined hands with Tech Mahindra in a unique venture to provide certain skill-based training for youth. The training centre in Vanagaram, Chennai empowers over 300 students every year through training and job placements.

Four different training courses, namely – four-wheeler driving/forklift operator, Automotive Service Technician, AC & Electrical wiring, Automobile sales & marketing along with soft-skills training, on-the-job training and placement assistance after course completion are being offered completely free of cost for youth from downtrodden and economically backward families. Each of these training programmes includes three months of academy training and one month of on-the-job training at various companies, followed by a permanent employment at one such company. These training programmes have been handpicked in consultation with industry experts by determining the market demand for skilled staff in these areas to ensure that youngsters receive adequate opportunity for employment.


Through its various skill training programs for youngsters from downtrodden sections, SEESHA has been endeavouring continuously to equip them to compete on par with other youth.

In an effort to provide the right job opportunities for such youngsters during the difficult times of the pandemic fallout, a mega job fair was organized by SEESHA in association with its corporate partner - Tech Mahindra Foundation, on February 27, 2021, at SEESHA Vanagaram Campus - Chennai. Over 6,000 jobseekers and 52 renowned companies, including Hyundai, Toyota, Nissan, IFB, Tata Motors, TVS, Reliance Group, Paytm, Tech Mahindra, Blue Star, Voltas, Maruti Suzuki, IDBI Bank and many more employers across different sectors participated in the mega event. The event was well-received and appreciated by all.
