"When more and more women join the workforce, the country progresses rapidly. Their contribution to productivity increases the country's GDP and the economic well-being of the families. For women, apparel manufacturing, design etc are some of the best fitting jobs. There is visible recognition of women’s contribution in the apparel/fashion/retail sectors and ATDC encourages women to take up the apparel training as a career option making every effort to nurture their talent, skills and dedication," said Dr Darlie Koshy, DG & CEO-ATDC.
"We are committed to train more women for their skill development so that they can earn while improving families’ well-being and this encourages us," added Koshy.
ATDC was awarded at the summit-cum-awards on Skilling India-From Skills to Prosperity organised by Associated Chambers of Commerce and Industry of India in New Delhi. ATDC has received this award for its exemplary contributions in the women’s skill development in the country. The institute through its 200 pan-India centres renders yeomen service to the downstream apparel export and domestic manufacturing industries having trained over 2,00,000 candidates in short-term courses under Integrated Skill Development Scheme (ISDS) of Ministry of Textiles (MOT), as a component agency and also about 80,000 candidates in longer duration vocational courses with 79-82 per cent being women candidates. The total number of women candidates who were assessed and certified by ATDC was over 1,50,000 (just under ISDS, MOT’s scheme alone).
The key highlights of the summit were forecast of skills linked to the new business order, models of collaboration & partnerships towards successful skilling, strategy for effective execution for real success & sustainability, from employability to employment: challenges & way forward in skilling to placement, enabling financial support for start up businesses/entrepreneurship and skilling to placement – a case study.
