13 November 2018

(ANS – Kurla) – “Don Bosco Kurla’s St Joseph Industrial Training Institute” joined forces with “Motul - Atlantic Lubricants and Specialties” (ALSI) to set up a two-wheeler centre for learning across an 1100 square feet area, on October 30.

The venture will teach youth to learn, be skilled and qualified in the motorcycle/scooter mechanics industry. The training will take place over a year and will include on-the-job training at two-wheeler authorized service centres across Mumbai and its suburbs.

Jiten Goswami, ALSI Chairman, Pritam Goswami, Head of Marketing ALSI, Sandeep Bhat, Director ALSI, Ashwin Balwally, Country Head India Motul, were present at the inauguration ceremony. Rector Director Father Colbert da Silva welcomed the gathering and expressed his gratitude for the new partnership.

Goswami then congratulated Don Bosco for initiating the Motul Centre for Learning. He was impressed with the enthusiasm of the trainees to become skilled technicians and entrepreneurs with their own service stations.

Balwally then spoke about the history of Motul and familiarised the assembly with the Motul School of Learning in France. He thanked the Don Bosco management for being zealous and executing Motul’s dream of instituting a similar Centre for Learning in India. He further revealed his desire of certifying the trainees and trainers of Motul Centre for Learning in India via the Motul School of Learning in France.

The collaboration with the company "Motul" is certainly not the first developed by the Salesian center of Kurla to favor the training and employment opportunities of its students: in the past years the institute has already developed 14 other such partnerships. Among the most recent and important, one might mention the agreement undersigned in July 2017 with "Tata Hitachi", an important company in the sector of production and trade of agricultural and industrial machinery; as well as the agreement dated July 2015 with the giant Japanese automaker "Toyota" for the activation of a course centered on bodywork repairs and painting.
