Oppo-TSSC tie-up to skill youth; 3rd phase of ‘Cyber Sangini’ launched

The smartphone firm has already benefitted over 5,000 women in Andhra Pradesh and Jharkhand in the first two phases of the Cyber Sangini programme that aims to spread awareness about cyber security and safety.


Oppo India has entered into an agreement with the Telecom Sector Skill Council (TSSC), under which it aims to skill the youth of the country and also give them jobs at its manufacturing units. The Chinese consumer electronics firm is also partnering with the CSC Academy to roll out phase III of its Cyber Sangini Programme, under which it aims to train 2,500 women in Uttar Pradesh, in cyber skills.

Phase I and II of the Cyber Sangini Programme has already been implemented in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Jharkhand, where about 5,000 are benefitting from the training.

The three-year long partnership of the smartphone brand with TSSC is expected to upskill and train the youth of the country and create a stronger environment conducive to innovation.

Oppo India is clearly trying to uphold its pledge to drive inclusive growth and contribute to the country’s digital transformation.

The two collaborations will make the youth of India more employable in the telecom sector. The training will help reskill and upskill the existing workforce, and at the same time also provide a talent pool for Oppo to fulfil its own workforce needs.

Upskilling will happen through the Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) Programme under the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal V Vikas Yojana (PMKVY).

The Cyber Sangini Programme, as the name suggests, is aimed at making women more aware of cybersecurity and ensure better cyber safety for the larger community. The women who have already benefitted from the programme can now look forward to being part of the TSSC tie-up and get formal certifications that are recognised by the Indian government.
