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.

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.

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.
