COSIA, since January, 2015 has started its Skill Development Programme (SDP) with an objective to impart Skill development training to members of the weaker section of our society and make them employable or capable for self employment.
A Full fledge SDP wing was established in July, 2015 on occasion of World Youth Skills Day (5th July)
COSIA is also been successfully implementing Skill Development Activities in collaboration with various Organisations and Companies as a part of their CSR. There are also other centers where COSIA is conducting Skill Development by spending its own resources.
Till date COSIA has successfully trained approximately 2,500 candidates in 146 batches at its 9 major centers (Wagle Estate-Thane, Dombivli, Kasarwadavli-Thane, Kandivali-Malad (E), Malad (W), Chembur, Ballard Estate (MSSIDC), Bhandup and Khardanda) across Mumbai and Thane in various courses like Accounts Assistant & Tally operator, Import Export Documentation with Taxation, Computer Hardware and Networking, and Women Oriented Courses like Sewing, Bakery and Beautician. All the above training is provided free of charge (no fees are charged).
COSIA intends to continue this endeavor in the near future with plans to establish new centers across Mumbai and Thane at locales like Govandi, Mumbra, Shahpur etc and to successfully implement CSR for partner Organisations as well as to develop new ties for the same.
