The Clothing Manufacturers Association of India‘s (CMAI) Apparel Training Centre will soon bring a big smile on the faces of 35,000 youth, women and disadvantaged sections of the society in India by training and providing them employment in the apparel industry, it said in a statement.

The exercise will also benefit the apparel industry as there would be a huge supply of skilled manpower which is now scarce.

The CMAI has been mandated the textiles ministry as its programme implementation partner under the integrated skill development scheme (ISDS) to identify, train and provide employment for 35,000 youths in the apparel and textile sector in three years i.e. by March 31, 2017. CMAI has set up CMAI-Apparel Training Centre (CMAI-ATC) to fulfil the mission.

CMAI had identified the lack of trained manpower as one of the prime reasons for the low productivity and efficiency in India. VM Kulkarni, chairman, CMAI’S apparel training centre said, “To fill the gap of trained manpower, CMAI’S ATC has proposed to setup 40 centres in three years.”

Currently 35 centres have been started and are fully functional in Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Tamil Nadu has the highest number of centres with 15.

On the feedback from its members and Industry representatives, CMAI’s ATC has identified five levels of training. They are sewing machine operator, advanced sewing machine operator, finishing and packaging, quality checkers and pattern maker.

Innovative training methodology and content, based on multimedia tools, developed with inputs from the industry is being used for training in order to ensure quality and coverage of large numbers. CMAI’S ATC have partnered with ISHA LEARNING who are pioneers in e-learning as well as CAD for providing digital as well as learning tools which will impart the best practices in the respective training modules. Some of the other technology partners are JUKI, IIGM, Reach Technologies and Manvish Technologies etc.

Trainees are mobilised with the help from District Collector’s office and NGO’s working with school dropouts, less educated youth, women, disadvantaged section of the society and differently abled.

Considering the acute shortage of qualified and well trained trainers, Kulkarni says, “We have regular training of trainers (TOT) programmes and have trained 84 trainers. Each trainer is given a trainer’s manual which consists of 20 modules. Each module consists of learning objective, key points, practical demonstration, assignment and field work. They are trained in advanced workshop formats thus improving the quality of training output, industry orientation and to maintain standard and uniformity.” (SH)
