Apparel Training and Design Centre (ATDC) signed a MoU with All India Council of Technical Training (AICTE), to offer B. Voc Programmes in Apparel Manufacturing & Entrepreneurship and Fashion Design & Retailing.

“With the ever increasing requirement of skilled-youth in the rapidly growing IT/Fashion related sectors, there is distinct rise in demand for skill-education courses from the new generation,” ATDC said in a statement.

It added, “This is an attempt to reduce the growing gaps between skilled man power requirements and availability in the apparel industry.”

According to the MoU, 30 training centres of India’s largest vocational training provider, ATDC have been approved by AICTE as ‘Skill Knowledge Provider’ (SKP) under the National Skill Qualification Framework (NSFQ) Scheme.

The NSQF is a nationally integrated education and competency based skill framework that will provide for multiple pathways, both within vocational education and vocational training.

This initiative is aligned with ATDC’s long-term courses for proper recognition and certification and in view of the practical difficulties in working with Institutions/Universities with only a state-level jurisdiction.

“This initiative will go a long way in promoting skill based competency modules to be part of the skill certification levels where a student can undergo skill based learning in textile, apparel and fashion sectors systematically,” ATDC explained.

The committee for suggesting curriculum for Apparel & Fashion programmes formulated by AICTE under the chairmanship of Dr Darlie Koshy, has developed the “Vocational Content” of the certificate level-I to Level-VII.

In the first phase, the B. Vocational programmes will be offered by select 7 ATDCs already in the apparel textile clusters across India which includes ATDCs at Jaipur, Okhla, Noida, Faridabad, Tirupur, Thiruvananthapuram, Kolkata and Bhubaneshwar.

Dr Darlie Koshy, CEO at ATDC said, “ATDC Vocational Institutes are a vital part of the vocational training system for careers in apparel, fashion and textiles having a pan-India presence in and near apparel-textile Hubs, offering certificate, diploma and advance diploma courses.”

“To attend to the ever increasing demand for degree courses, this MoU will facilitate us to offer new generation vocational course that addresses critical knowledge and skill sets required to make the candidate ‘industry ready’ right from the start and also become a young-entrepreneur,” he added.

The ATDCs have state-of-the-art infrastructure in terms of training equipment and human resources to offer two programmes, like B. Vocational in Apparel Manufacturing & Entrepreneurship and B. Vocational in Fashion Design & Retailing.

With both having a suitable mix of general-education and skill-development components based on the NSQF as per AICTE prescribed framework. (AR)
