Tata Communications Transformation Services (TCTS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Communications announced the launch of its pioneering Skill Africa Program, in association with the Smart Africa Alliance.

The program will address the skills shortage in the technological industry and chart the way for the future of telecoms and IT infrastructure in Africa. The intensive training program will cover a range of next-generation technologies and help future-proof the telecoms and IT infrastructure in Africa.

The Skill Africa Program will see approximately 150 engineers from across Africa being trained on a variety of next-generation technologies including Cyber-security, Internet of Things, Cloud, Big data, Robotics and Smart Cities.

Madhusudhan Mysore, Executive Chairman and CEO, Tata Communications Transformation Services
To ensure long term sustainability and growth in ICT services we need to address the skills gap. TCTS has launched this program to provide hands on experience in technology and operations of ICT networks.

Lacina Kone, Director General, Smart Africa
The Skill Africa Program is about more than just training 150 African people but also about starting a skills transfer chain where the initial 150 can exponentially impart these skills to thousands across Africa.
