Under this collaboration, Arvind Limited, a leading exporter, supplier and manufacturer of ready-made garments will be the training provider and will offer its infrastructure, space, training facilities and machinery for the skill training. An integrated skill development programme under PMKVY, the association entails skill training and further placements will be facilitated by Arvind Limited through its nine training centres in Karnataka.
With focus on three sectors namely apparel, made-ups and home furnishing, the skill training will be beneficial for six job roles including specialised sewing machine operator, sewing machine operator, quality check executive-sewing line, packer, pressman and washing machine operator. The job roles, aligned to the National Skills Qualifications Framework, encompass training of candidates for three to six months.
"Corporate India can be a major contributor to this nation-building exercise. The industry can promulgate their expertise and provide industry relevant training to the candidates in accordance with the demands. Such trainings not only enhance productivity and employability opportunities for the youth, also provide a ready talent pool to the industry. I congratulate Arvind Limited for their pioneering collaboration to accelerate the Skill India Mission," said Anantkumar Hegde, minister of state in skill development & entrepreneurship.
"Inclusive approach is paramount for sustainable skill development. Corporates are major stakeholders in this progressive journey and can play pivotal role in narrowing the existing gap between the demand and supply of skilled workforce. This two-fold approach benefits both the stakeholders – the skill seekers and the employers," Manish Kumar, MD & CEO, NSDC said.
"Skilled manpower is the need of the hour and we shall provide employment opportunities for every eligible youth who successfully completes their training programme. It is a pleasure to associate with Skill India Mission and we thank the ministry for providing us an opportunity to work in this noble endeavour," Vikram N, senior HR manager, Arvind Limited said.
