Default Toyota Kirloskar Motor's (TKM) TTTI Program EDIT: Now launched as T-TEP

Hello People,

This is Srinidhi from Bangalore. Recently I got an information from one of my friend regarding the new training program by the TKM company in Bangalore. They are starting a new training program for rural students and SSLC pass out students, where in they will take students and train them in any of the following trades:
  • Automobile Assembly

  • Automobile Paint
  • Mechatronics
Students can select their area of interest in the above mentioned field. The duration of the training is three years. All students admitted to the institute are offered free Education & Training with boarding & Lodging facilities and also a pocket allowance to meet personal expenses.

This is a very good platform offered by the Toyota Technical Training Institute for the rural students to become a World Class Technician in the area of Automobile manufacturing or plant maintenance and Toyota being one of the biggest car manufacturers in India, there cannot be a better chance for these students to expose themself to the latest technology in the field of automobiles.

Please inform about this training program if you know any bright rural students and help them move forward in their lives.

Following is the admission process and eligibility criteria for the program:

Admission Procedure:

Fantastic and very smart initiative by Toyota. Not only are they offering free training to those who need it (and giving them qualifications for career starts), but they are training people for their own requirements.

Who wouldnt want to hire someone trained by Toyota in the areas of automotive assembly etc.? This is an opportunity to learn the worlds best practices from the worlds most efficient car maker.

Most kids wanting a career in the automotive industry would rather take up this option than the diploma in auto engineering.

Default Kudos Toyota!

Toyota is not just selling cars in India but going the extra mile by training local unemployed youth and equipping them with knowledge of Toyota's best manufacturing practices. Once trained these young people can look at possible career oppurtunities within Toyota. But the training isn't all about assembling cars or working in assembly lines, Toyota's training goes further to include mind and body improvement.

Source: Toyota's training our youth.

Latest issue of OD also has information about how Toyota conducts traffic lessons in Bangalore's schools. This also is conducted on a continuous basis and the course includes safety lessons for both drivers and pedestrians. Kudos Toyota! The only way to improve the chaotic traffic situation in our country is to instill discipline and knowledge in our youth.

Toyota is doing what our governemnt should have been doing.

I have a new found respect for Toyota.

Well ! Thats a nice one to know and Toyota i think is setting a standard and raising the bar of excellence. To me after some of the Innova call backs, this is another sign of being responsible and contributing to the community as a whole with a lot of hopes into the youth in particular. Keep up the good work!

They do these community services as a part of their service to the community. In Bidadi where the TKM plant is set up, they have already taken up a school and they are sponsoring the education of the school. They have constructed and donated a new school building (Govt school) to the poor and needy people. This was around 3~4 years back. Even the Infosys foundation is upto the social jobs like this.

Our Govt should be ashamed of these corporates as they are not able to implement the same.

snaronikar, all corporates have a responsibility towards helping the weaker sections of society in the places they are present, and most of them involve in the same. Its just that some get highlighted while others dont.

For a fact, does anyone know that Infy mandatorily deducts Rs.100/- from each employee's monthly salary towards their Welfare fund, and then when they take up some project of this sort, its only Sudha Murthy's name which gets the limelight.

Back to the topic, i have always had enormous respect for Toyota and such practices from them only go towards strengthening that.

This is a news to me. I did not know this. But why do they cut in the salaries of the employees. Atleast in Toyota we never heard/saw salary cuts due to this.

@benbsb29 : Yea almost most of the corporates do these and unfortunately only the higher management level folks are credited for it though and the government...man ! They dont care about the commoners as we all know and once in 5 years alone when they are in need of the votes they surface back..
Again, its nice to see that Toyota is certainly doing a good job on the Automotive manufacturers as compared to others as i dont recall any such venture by other automotive majors.

It is CSR cum PR cum philantrophy cum vested interest. Many birds killed in one stone. The vested interest part is because these companies get huge tracts of land at heavily subsidised rates. The land is acquired forcibly by the state from farmers for this purpose. Whatever these companies spend on CSR activities is a pittance in comparison to the price of the land which they get.

Google and you will find info on Tata providing similar training to youth in Singur. Infact they are going one step ahead and employing those people. I wouldn't be surprised if every auto company in India would be doing this on some scale. Some choose not to advertise it.

To my mind, the price of the land is indeed a small price to pay, for what the community gets in return. Hundreds of millions of dollars of investments which affect the local community either directly or indirectly. Regardless of their motives, the net result is still beneficial for the community as a whole.

I agree about the trickle down positive effects on the economy. The only problem is that the state should not act in a partisan manner in a transaction between private parties. Companies should pay market price for the land they get and transact with land owners directly. Also the wealth created by the economic activity does not necessarily get shared with people who make the sacrifice. Mechanisms have to be developed to ensure that. Alas that does not happen in the Indian context.

Toyota has finally launched it Toyota Technical Education Program (T-TEP) in Delhi. Here is more from the official Press Release


Toyota Kirloskar Motor's (TKM) TTTI Program EDIT: Now launched as  T-TEP-toyota.jpg.jpg

Quote:

Toyota launches its Technical Education Program in Delhi

Introduces “Body & Paint Repair Syllabus” for the first time in India
  • * Toyota has partnered with 16 Industrial Training Institutes so far under the TTEP program
    * Body and paint course-a first in India-to be introduced in 2 institutes this year
    * Over 500 industrial training institute students to benefit from this program every year
    * Will expose students to the latest in automotive repair technology
    * On-the-job training at Toyota Dealerships

Delhi, November 6th, 2009: Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd., in collaboration with Toyota Motor Corporation and its nationwide dealer network, has introduced a distinctive training model for Body and Paint Repair (BP) under the Toyota Technical Education Program (T-TEP), at the Sir C. V. Raman Industrial Training Institute, Delhi.

T-TEP, a special training module was launched in 2006 in India. In a span of 4 years, 16 institutes have been covered under the program. In its first year, the program was implemented in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Hubli. The program was subsequently introduced in Bangalore, Pune, Cochin, Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Ghaziabad, Kolkata, Jaipur, Jalandhar, Indore and Mumbai.


With this program, Toyota Kirloskar Motor intends to enhance the technical abilities and employability of Industrial Training Institute (ITI) students in the age group of 16 to 18 years. The program will benefit ITIs in building skilful technicians for the Indian automotive repair industry. The current automobile repair industry is characterised by inadequately skilled manpower and lack of professional training for repair and diagnostics, especially for the vehicle models, introduced recently, in the market.TTEP is a unique initiative undertaken by TKM, in partnership with ITIs and its dealers across India, to remove this lacuna.

Today’s event marks the launch of a “New Body and Paint Repair Syllabus” under the T-TEP program. This syllabus, a first of its kind in India, has been developed in collaboration with the Department of Training and Technical Education, Government of NCT, Delhi. The syllabus imparts training on basic body and paint repair skills in addition to dealer specific requirements to students, thereby improving their knowledge of repair techniques and facilitating the adoption of latest technology in BP. Currently BP technicians have limited information and hands on experience in the usage of correct repair operations and techniques, forcing dealers to recruit manpower from local garages. Toyota along with its supplier partners, Asian PPG and 3M, will provide all necessary support to the institute i.e. training consumables, visiting faculty, training material, tools, equipments, scholarships etc. To begin with, the course will provide training to 40 students every year.


Present at the occasion, Mr. Hiroshi Nakagawa, MD, Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt Ltd, said,
“TTEP has been successfully implemented in 419 institutes across 53 countries. We introduced TTEP in India, in 2006, and since then have been successful in imparting training, to create skilled manpower. As we reach out to other ITIs in the coming years, we wish to contribute towards a marked increase in the availability of skilled manpower in the Indian automobile repair industry. We are committed to provide the best to the students, which will eventually benefit the industry on the whole”

The T-TEP Body and Paint curriculum, a 1 year syllabus, under the State Council of Vocational Training, introduces students to Toyota’s advanced technology and service techniques. It also includes, on-the-job training, at Toyota’s dealerships. As a part of this program, TKM will also train institute instructors in the latest technology, used at Toyota and the automobile industry.

Also present at the occasion, Mr. Sandeep Singh, DMD, Marketing, Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt Ltd, said, “The Indian Automobile industry has been growing at a rapid pace. This has generated the need for a pool of skilled manpower. The gap currently existing between the supply and, ever increasing, demand for skilled manpower, will only widen with this growth. TTEP is a step towards bridging this gap. After successfully implementing Toyota Technical Education Program in Delhi in 2007, we have now introduced a special course on Body and Paint Repair. This would in turn create skilled technicians for the Body and Paint Repair industry - a largely unorganized segment - of the automobile service industry”.

TKM plans to introduce this program to technical institutes across the countries in the coming years and reach out to over 500 students per year. The project is jointly funded by Toyota Motor Corporation and Toyota Kirloskar Motor. Together they provide T-TEP institutes with hi-tech training packages and Toyota service training manuals and materials. Asian PPG and 3M have also extended their support by providing latest equipments and material required for training.

T-TEP supports Toyota’s comprehensive human resource development system that extends from training at T-TEP institutes to recruitment and development at Toyota dealerships.

T-TEP is widely recognized across the globe for its effectiveness. The program has been successfully introduced in 53 countries by Toyota, which includes USA, Australia, Italy, South Africa, China, Vietnam and India.
