Higher education is one of the institutions hardest hit by the lockdown and social isolation that is essential to fight the spread of COVID-19.

To help students continue to learn and develop during this period, TCS iON has announced a free self-paced digital certification program called Career Edge - Knockdown the Lockdown.

The 15-day online course has been specially created to help students effectively utilize the time they have during the lockdown to develop both their soft and hard career skills – enhancing and sharpening your personality and knowledge.

Just 2 hours per day over 2 weeks will provide students with the opportunity to learn diverse skills which will prepare them for career – and keep them ahead of their peers. Through this course, students gain the necessary skillsets demanded by modern industry – along with guidance from TCS business experts, giving them a head start well before you start your career.

The learning in this course is aided with nano tutorial videos, case studies and assessments to gauge if the course objectives are met and to help students understand their strengths and weaknesses. This course includes recorded webinars by TCS experts, making it relevant and aligned to the information technology industry.

There’s an end-of-course assessment after completion of all the modules. This course also comes along with a community - Career Edge - Knockdown the Lockdown.

The moderator of the community will respond within a short time – making students feel connected even in isolation.
