In addition to these centers, the Foundation has started SMART Academies with the intent of offering more advanced and longer-term courses in some specialized vocations. Launched in May 2016, the first Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for Healthcare is working for training paramedics in the Healthcare Sector. The Academy is a state-of-the-art training institute, situated in North Delhi, in the pristine campus called Gandhi Ashram. It aims at creating a cadre of well qualified, trained professionals in the field of allied healthcare by providing high quality innovative and interactive training to young men and women keen to pursue a career in Healthcare. The second Tech Mahindra SMART Academy in Healthcare sector was launched in 2017 at Mohali.  The third Tech Mahindra SMART Academy for Healthcare in Mumbai is slated to launch in Nov 2018. The Mumbai Academy will be an all-girls Academy in partnership with Auxilium Selasian Society, Bandra. The Academies though, not for profit initiatives but work on a financially sustainable model in which students are charged a nominal fee to cover part of the operational expenses. The Foundation is looking at Bengaluru as the possible location for the fourth Healthcare Academy.

Within a short span of time the Tech Mahindra Smart Academies for Healthcare have established themselves as preferred destinations for those who want to make their career in healthcare sector. The academies have been able to attract students from different states namely- Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Delhi, Gujarat, Assam, Manipur, Jammu and Kashmir, Rajasthan, Bihar and Chhattisgarh. The Academy has been providing trained manpower to leading as part of its campus placement initiatives. Almost all the leading hospitals are participating in both OJT and Placement of the students.

Keeping in mind Government of India’s vision of Skilling India and after establishing itself in the field of healthcare Tech Mahindra SMART Academy plans to foray into Logistics sector. According to Economic Survey, the logistics sector in India is estimated to touch 215 USD million in next 2 years. The Indian logistics industry has grown at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.8 per cent during the last five years and provides employment to more than 22 million people. Creation of a new logistics division in the Department of commerce for developing logistics sector in an integrated way further establishes importance of skilled manpower requirement in times to come.
