The Tata Power Skill Development Institute (TPSDI) is an endeavour from the Tata Power Company to empower youth and others with employable skills, especially in the Power and allied sectors, and to address the skill gap challenge faced by the Indian Power Sector.
The Institute provides modular training and certification across a wide range of employable skills. TPSDI was launched on Feb 9, 2015 as part of Tata Power's Centenary Year celebrations by the Tata Group Chairman.
The Institute has set up five training hubs in four locations in the country leveraging the facilities of Tata Power and its JV/Subsidiaries:
The Institute's unique training approach is designed for delivering skills with speed, scale, and standards. The employability centric courses range from 2 to 12 weeks in duration and follow the TPSDI Competency Framework, which is congruous with the National Skill Quality Framework (NSQF). The TPSDI Competency Framework allows participants to swiftly pick up readily deployable skills and continue upgrading their skills after convenient intervals over a period of time.
Training at TPSDI ensures holistic development of trainees. In addition to technical skills, training at TPSDI also focuses on other dimensions of skill building, such as - numerical ability, science, basic IT, industry orientation, communication, soft skills & personality development, and work ethics, and places special emphasis on Safety, Health & Environment (SHE) considering the sector's specific need. The training consists of both knowledge and hands-on skills.
