Apparel Training and Design Centre (ATDC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), under the HRD ministry to offer Bachelor of Vocational (B.Voc) Programmes in apparel manufacturing and entrepreneurship and fashion design and retailing, it said in a statement.

Until now, only diploma, advance diploma and certificate programmes were offered in vocational trainings due to which students had to face lot of difficulties in finding jobs. With the commencement of these degree courses, students will now have better employment opportunities compared to the diploma courses. B. Voc is the new degree announced by UGC which is a judicious blend of skill and education components. B.Voc course has been introduced by ATDC in Delhi-NCR. ATDC targets to educate 500 candidates through 13 ATDC centers under B.Voc courses. The duration of the course is three years comprising of six semesters.

These courses are first of its kind and will give international industrial exposure to its students. ATDC has already tied up with Sri Lankan, Japanese and Korean institutes to help students prepare themselves for the industry.

“B.voc course addresses the critical knowledge and skill-sets required to make the candidate ‘industry ready’ right from the start and also make ‘young-entrepreneurs’ in the apparel-retail sector. It is a set of formal education and skill components which generates more employment opportunities. B. Voc course will bridge the gap of skilled man force in apparel industry. ” said, Dr. Darliey Koshy, DG and CEO, ATDC & IAM.

ATDC trained 1, 50,000 candidates through 200 ATDC centers under smart project across the country till January 2015. ATDC is the largest pan-India vocational training provider for the apparel sector with around 65 ATDC vocational institutes and over 135 ATDC- SMART centres and skill camps present in major apparel clusters spread across 85 cities in India.
