IL&FS Skills Development Corporation Ltd (IL&FS Skills), a joint initiative of IL&FS Education & National Skills Development Corporation (NSDC) launched Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for Sewing Machine Operators under Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY). It was launched at the M/s Poppys Knitwear Pvt. Ltd. Factory near Tirupur industrial town.

RPL aims to align the competencies of the unregulated workforce of the country to National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF), which is a competency-based framework that organises all qualifications according to a series of levels of knowledge, skills and aptitude. RPL is a platform to provide recognition to the informal learning or learning through work to get equal acceptance as the formal levels of education.

The programme aims to impart skills training for existing workers to align the competencies of the unregulated workforce to the NSQF under PMKVY - RPL scheme. It focuses on enhancing the career/employability opportunities of an individual as well as provide alternative routes to greater standards of living through skill enhancement.

RPL also envisages providing opportunities for reducing inequalities based on certain privileged forms of knowledge over others. It is a process of assessment of an individual's prior learning to give due importance to learning as an outcome rather than learning as a process. The project launch ceremony was focused upon the RPL project launch and commencement of first batch of training. Training materials kits were distributed to the trainees during the ceremony.

Dr A Sakthivel, chairman, Poppys' group of companies & board member of Apparel Made-ups & Home Furnishing Sector Skills Council (AMHSSC), was the chief guest of the event and Lakshmanan, assistant director, Textiles Committee was the guest of honour. The ceremony was also attended by the senior management of Poppys Group of Companies along with the existing workers of the factory and Assistant Director, Textiles Committee.

Sakthivel delivered the key note address and mentioned the initiatives of IL&FS in skills domain and the benefits to the industry and employees. He assured of all support to IL&FS Skills in RPL implementation.

Lakshmanan highlighted the significance of the programme to the potential trainees. He also informed on how industry could be better off by RPL kind of training that improved the technical and life-skills of the trainees. (KD)
