The MoU was signed during the launch of two employment schemes in Madhya Pradesh (MP). Rajiv Pratap Rudy, union minister of state, skill development and entrepreneurship, launched Mukhyamantri Koshal Samvardhan Yojana and Mukhyamantri Koshailya Yojana under MP Skill Mission where a total of three lakh youths will be trained every year.
"Skill development is the need of the hour. It will make the huge population of the country our strength," said Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan at the launch programme. He further said that a MoU has also been signed with Singapore to launch Global Skill Centre in Bhopal.
"ATDC has the unique distinction of offering courses from ‘300 hrs’ for workforce training to 3000 hrs of B.Voc Bachelor degree courses for supervisory and junior managerial jobs thus developing a holistic eco-system of vocational training dedicated to textile-apparel value chain. Through the 200 state-of-art centres in the country, ATDC equips the youth with domain and soft skills for getting 'wage employment' or for starting their own entrepreneurial ventures. In ATDC curricula, special focus is being given to real-life industrial work-culture and competencies to pursue not just an entry-level job in organised factories but also to develop a 'career' in the rapidly growing apparel industry. ATDC has been transitioning from just 'imparting skills' to developing 'Skills-Excellence' for industry-ready workforce and professionals over the last decade and are now making rapid strides as the industry modernises, automates and scales up," said Dr Darlie Koshy, DG&CEO, ATDC.
