Wipro launches innovation and talent hub in Reading, UK
(16:03, 11 Oct 2018)
Wipro announced the launch of its Innovation and Talent Hub in Reading, reinforcing the company's commitment to develop talent and strengthen STEM skills in the United Kingdom.

The multifunctional hub will be a centre of excellence for 'Ascent', Wipro's talent development programme launched in 2017, to train UK-based computer science graduates and degree apprentices in digital technologies. To date, the programme has trained and placed 95 digitaltechnology graduates and 40 digital technology degree apprentices in client projects at Wipro, across the UK. The graduates are from multiple universities in the UK while Sheffield Hallam University is the learning provider for the apprentices who are studying for a Bachelor of Sciencedegree in digital technology.

In addition to 'Ascent', the hub will run work experience programmes for school leavers, internship programmes for university students, and training programmes for employees. It will also be the centre for Wipro's TopGear platform, which provides an opportunity for the company's employees across the UK to work on crowdsourcing-based technology challenges.

The hub will also provide a collaborative space for co-innovation and unique learning projects with clients.

In September, Wipro announced that it will partner with King's College London, to support the development of the first Master of Arts in STEM Education in the UK, and Sheffield Hallam University to offer the 'Wipro Teacher Fellowship' and 'Wipro Teacher Mentor' programmes.
