HCL plans to launch its Tech Bee initiative to help students

HCL plans to launch its Tech Bee initiative to help students

HCL, the Indian IT services giant has announced plans to launch its “Tech Bee” program, under which it would reportedly train and hire high school graduates. While the complete structure of the initiative has not been revealed, HCL has reportedly hired about 700 students under this program. The company began the Tech Bee initiative as a test in the states of Tamil Nadu and Uttar Pradesh and found good results.

HCL has its operations in Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, and Uttarakhand and operates its own development centers. According to a senior executive of the company, HCL would begin its unique program in states where it has a presence, to enhance their outreach. The reason for such a program is to encourage greater numbers of students to enter into the IT sector and to help with their careers down the line. The criteria for eligibility into this initiative are a minimum score of 60% marks in Std. 12 with mathematics included among the subjects.

Students who wish to enroll need to take an entrance exam and those who get selected would receive a stipend of Rs.10000 per month. Furthermore, enrolled students would also be able to pursue higher studies as part of the program.

It has long been emphasized by experts that the only way to bolster technical education in India is through collaboration with IT corporations on formulating better means of pedagogy.
