Textile Sector Skill Council (TSC) has begun collating data from the mill sector to understand the industry?s job role training requirement, for submission to the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).
TSC Chief Executive JV Rao told that with the skill training syllabus (for 56 job roles) in place, training providers could start their activities from next month (the syllabus was prepared by consultants in consultation with 400-odd technical people from 180 mills, Rao said.
The Council, in the meantime, is in the process of creating awareness among the mills regarding the need to enroll themselves to become training providers, and thereby avail the benefit of government schemes. Rao held discussions with the Managing Directors of 98 mills in the Western region of Tamil Nadu and apprised them about the enrollment and affiliation process.
On the sidelines of this event, he said that every mill has a training department, but the objective of the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), the flagship skill development scheme, is to encourage standardisation in the certification process and create a registry of skills. TSC has developed a protocol for a training development mechanism.
