Fostering Local Jobs and Employability

Case Study
Minute Read
Our French Telecom Infrastructure business, TDF, recently implemented a “Pass Fiber” training program to provide training to unemployed community members to improve their job prospects as technicians. 

The training program allows job seekers to try a fiber technician job for a day. This involves work site visits and workshops on cable pulling and fiber soldering, giving real-time education on what a job as a technician entails. Following the training program, TDF’s suppliers can engage with TDF to staff their own teams.

545 People were trained on fiber work by TDF

487 Long-term unemployed persons were hired onto TDF fiber projects
