WIPRO launched Innovation and Talent Hub in Reading, reinforcing the company's commitment to develop talent and strengthen STEM skills in the United Kingdom. The new state-of-the-art facility will train computer science graduates and degree apprentices from the UK.

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 digital technology 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 Science degree 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 crowd sourcing-based technology challenges.
