Apparel Training & Development Centre (ATDC), India’s largest vocational training network for the apparel sector, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Labour and Employment, Government of India, whereby ATDC can impart employment oriented training to the youth at national level.
 
ATDC, which functions under the aegis of Apparel Export Promotion Council (AEPC), currently runs around 175 ATDCs, including 65 ATDC vocational institutes and over 135 ATDC-SMART Centres and Skill Camps, in major apparel clusters spread across 22 states and 85 cities pan-India.
 
The MoU was signed by Alok Kumar, director general, Directorate General of Employment & Training (DGE&T), Ministry of Labour and Employment, and Dr Darlie Koshy, director general/ CEO of ATDC, at a function in Gurgaon this week.
 
The MoU will allow ATDC to run customised courses in association with large apparel export houses and leading domestic manufacturers. These courses shall also be approved by National Council of Vocational Training (NCVT) so that the candidates can get NCVT certificates on completion of the courses.
 
The MoU will help in three ways. Firstly, it will cut short many impediments in nationwide implementation of the skill based programmes. Secondly, it will focus on changing technology being incorporated in courses. And lastly, it will focus more on longer duration programmes with support of DGE&T by tuning with industry inputs.
 
ATDC will get freedom in developing such courses wherein theory portion of the courses can be taught in the training centre and practical in the industry. A special feature of the MoU is that ATDC will ensure employment of 80 per cent of the candidates in a batch.
 
DGE&T has already entered into such MoUs with Raymond in the textile sector.
 
The MoU will compliment DGET and ATDC capabilities to reach and achieve a common goal of skilling India. (RKS)
