Ministry of Textile Industry (MINTEX) Government of Pakistan has launched a Skill Development Project with collaboration of International Labor Organization (ILO) and Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA). 

MINTEX has selected four textile training institutes working under administrative control of MINTEX namely Pakistan Readymade Garment Training Institute (PRGTTI) LHR, Pakistan Knitwear Training Institute (PKTI)LHR, Pakistan Fashion and Apparel Design Institute  (FADIN)Karachi SMA Rizvi Textile Institute (SMARTI) Karachi as partners for implementation of this project. 

The training program’s main objective is provision of skilled workforce to Textile Industry to make it more competitive and export oriented and to uplift the economic status and living standard of trainees especially women through their employment based skill development.  
 
MINTEX will cover the costs incurred in the areas of trainee stipend, trainer’ salary, raw material cost, social mobilization   (through News paper advertisement web Portal, banners, posters etc), evaluation cost and certificate printing &distribution.  The admissions in the skill development program have started from 15th September 2012 and classes would start from 1st October 2012. Ministry of textile Industry is offering multiple textile training courses focusing on garment sector i.e. Fashion & apparel design and Pattern making and cutting for lingerie making, Line supervisory skills, Quality control, Fancy stitching and Knitting machine operators training.

Approximately 600 trainees would be trained in different batches spread over about one and half year’s time. On the completion of training course, job placement of the trainees would be ensured with the help of textile institutes and respective textile associations.
