Apparel Training & Design Centre (ATDC), India's largest quality vocational training provider for the apparel industry was awarded 'Best Vocational Training Provider (VTP) 2016' award by the Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India (Assocham) at an award-cum-summit function 'Skilling India': The Way Forward' in New Delhi.

Skill Development & Employment Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy presented the award to Darlie Koshy, DG&CEO-ATDC & IAM.

ATDC was selected for the award for its contribution to large scale quality skilling of Indian youth specially women in rural and semi urban areas and for meeting the rapidly changing skill requirements of the apparel sector with real time industry relevant skill modules and new learning solutions and making trainees ready for employment.

While exporters require cycle & through put time to be brought down in the context of 'Fast-Fashions' approach gaining ground world-over, the domestic sector wants “Product Lifecycle Management” 'fast-turnaround of store merchandising', captivating visuals etc. The e-commerce/m-commerce wants fashion to meet instant gratification standard with supply chain-logistic management. ATDC is the largest vocational training provider for the textile-apparel chain offering a comprehensive bouquet of courses for 'career' progression in an integrated manner by creating a “step ladder-training eco-system” with clear focus on “Skilling of aspirational Indian youth”.

“We always talk about doctors, engineers, professors and other professionals but we hardly talk about skills. The world skill was never part of our system. Our Prime Minister Narendra Modi understood the importance of skill development and created Skill Development Ministry. There was a need to create this ministry, we talk about convergence, globalization, training, identifying talent but what in particular is there which is different, it is the skills,” Rudy said at the function.

Dr. Darlie Koshy, DG & CEO – ATDC & IAM, said “The award is yet another important milestone in our journey of 'Upskilling, Reskilling, Newskilling' of youth and women which ATDC has undertaken over the last 5-6 years on a pan-India basis. ATDC further through an 'integrated step-ladder eco system' for skill training in downstream apparel sector ensures employment of youth and empowerment of women creating multiplier effect in rural economy while providing professional workforce at different levels to widely dispersed apparel manufacturing clusters.” (SH)
