The inauguration of this center is under a program called STEP (Schaeffler Technical Enhancement Program) which is run under the CSR umbrella HOPE.

Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Santanu Ghoshal, VP Human Resource- Schaeffler India, said: “STEP as a program has been designed to develop and empower the youth and their families from the underprivileged section of the society from the surrounding communities where Schaeffler operates. After establishing two centers in Pune, this is our third center under the STEP initiative, empowering students with technical skills with a focus on making them employable and self-reliant. Every individual should be provided with an opportunity to improve their lives by earning a living through hard work and dedication. Schaeffler strongly believes in giving back to society from where we have received, and STEP is a modest endeavor in that direction. “

32 students from the adjoining areas of Hosur have been enrolled for the 4-month course. Students are recommended and screened by recognized field workers from SkillSonics and NGO partner Aaradhana to ascertain the family background of the students. The selected candidates will get vocational training as recommended by the National Skill Development Corporation by the Ministry of Skill Development. 

Students will be provided certificates under NSDC (National Skill Development Corporation) and SWISSMEM (optional and based on assessment) after successful completion of the training. Along with technical training, the curriculum will also provide communication and soft skills training to support the candidates for interview preparation process and final placements.
