The Apparel Training & Design Centre (ATDC) network, under the aegis of AEPC has emerged as the largest vocational skill provider for Apparel Sector in India and also the preferred source for skilled shop-floor workforce and different tiers of professionals, in its journey of “Skilling the Apparel Sector”.

ATDC India’s largest vocational training provider for the apparel sector in Karnataka is adopting a ‘holistic’ approach towards developing the apparel and textiles industry next to information technology through the Suvarna Vastra Neethi (Textile Policy), Apparel Parks, Cluster–based projects, Apparel Training & Design Centre –SMART Centres/Skill Camps and Road shows.

With this, comes the challenge-to train unskilled workforce and provide better training to make the skilling more globally-competitive in an environment where new technology is the buzzword. The current format of Skill Development and making skilled manpower available to the apparel industry has been quite successful in Karnataka.

Considering the huge demand and supply of skilled workforce in the ‘Bengaluru Garment Cluster’ ATDC would be expanding its foot prints in setting up of ATDC SMART Centres in and around Bangalore Urban and Rural. In collaboration with the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), the ATDC SMART Centres are being established in Adugodi – Bangalore (South), Malleswaram & Nagarbhavi in Bangalore – West.

Many more Apparel Training & Design Centre SMART Centres / Skill Camps are in the pipeline proposed at 1.Bellary, 2.Bidar, 3.Gulbarga, 4.Bijapur, 5.Belgaum, 6.Shimoga,7.Koppal, 8.Davangere, 9.Chitraduga, 10.Hassan,  11.Mangalore  12.Mallavalli & 13.Mysore.

Siddaiah, IAS Commissioner, BBMP and Dr.Trilok Chandra IAS, Additional Commissioner BBMP-West and Sri.S.M.Murugesh Mudaliar, Corporator (W.No.147) Adugodi.
