The ATDC Conclave witnessed a major landmark in the area of skill development for Apparel Sector with release of key course curricula documents, AICTE approved curricula for National Vocational Education Qualification Framework (NVEQF) system in Garment & Fashion Sector and National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT) approved curricula for apparel & fashion sector under the two major Regulatory Bodies of Govt. of India, guiding the entire education and training sector.
Both the committees under the Chairmanship of Dr. Darlie Koshy, DG&CEO of ATDC&IAM have done exceptional work in a short time to prepare the curricula documents which have been adopted by the AICTE and the NCVT/DGET which are expected to transform the quality of skill development in the country. This is an important initiative responding to the changing requirements of the labour intensive apparel sector and addressing the current imperative need to develop skill based education system.
Delivering the Welcoming note at the event, Dr. A Sakthivel said "ATDC has set up 177 centres of ATDC-SMART in just about 2-3 years under ISDS of MOT, GOI with a built-up capacity to train over 45,000 candidates per year and has initiated new models for skill training in the country." He also said, "I am happy to mention that today is a major milestone in the area of Skill Development for Apparel Sector as two curricula documents which have been now adopted by the AICTE and the NCVT/DGET and are being released today at the hands of the Hon'ble Union Minister of Textiles."
During the Conclave, Dr. Darlie Koshy, explained "In the case of AICTE, the streams for which curricula have been developed are for Fashion Design, Textile Design, Apparel Manufacturing and Fashion Management which have taken into consideration the dynamic manufacturing and marketing environment.
As far as NCVT is concerned, the new curricula have recast the earlier MES curricula for garment and fashion sectors by incorporating the industry needs and employability criteria." Expressing optimism Dr. Darlie Koshy mentioned "This important step of structuring of nationwide curricula will go a long way in opening more opportunities forlateral and vertical mobility of candidates and certification systems thus building up a 'skilled workforce' for improving productivity and efficiency of the sector."
