For the growth and development of apparel industry, the Apparel Training and Design Centre (ATDC) will expand its footprint by opening a new centre and a regional training hub at Ahmedabad/Gandhinagar. The aim is to fulfill the steadily expanding requirement of the skilled youth in the rapidly developing textile related sectors in Gujarat.

"Gujarat is one of the fastest developing textile apparel manufacturing clusters. ATDC has state -of-art infrastructure offering shop floor, supervisory and managerial skills to make industry- ready workforce. This will enable us to make new skill development forays in the state of Gujarat as we propose to set up a regional training hub in Ahmedabad/Gandhinagar, with additional training centres in the state," Dr Darlie Koshy – DG and CEO, ATDC said.

Further, ATDC also plans to set up 'India International Skill Centre', with National Skill Development Corporation, additional ATDC-SMART centres in major textile-apparel clusters in Gujarat and also apparel design centre (as fashion and crafts design and innovation cells) with focus on 'Innovative Designs' for apparel industry to create new brands and global fashions for youth. There are also plans to commence B. Voc. courses in Gujarat.

Headquartered in Gurugram, ATDC under the aegis of Apparel Export Promotion Council has emerged as India’s largest vocational training network for the apparel sector whose presence currently spans 200 ATDCs including 65 ATDC vocational institutes and over 135 ATDC- SMART centres and skill camps present in major apparel clusters spread across 23 states and 85 cities across India.
