Centre to expand capacity of 12,000 ITIs: Dattatreya

Education NewsA decision in this regard was made by both Dattatreya and Ian Macfarlane, Australian minister for industry at the launch of the third India-Australia Skills Conference here. This is an initiative of the Australia India Education Council in partnership with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) and National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).

Dattatreya applauded the efforts of Mr Macfarlane by personally coming to Mumbai and giving this initiative the impetus it deserved. He welcomed the 100-member Australian skills business delegation.

He highlighted his ministry’s initiatives on skills and reiterated that skill development is a priority of the Narendra Modi-led NDA government. He stated that with India going to add 10 million people to the work force each year, they would need to be skilled and employable.

He mentioned that training conducted by companies has helped to produce a competitive workforce. Macfarlane said India hosting the conference was a testament of the commitment of both countries on collaborating in skills.

He pointed out that by 2020, 25 per cent of the total international manpower employed will be Indian, and hence, it is the most opportune time to bring vocational training in India to an international standard for higher mobility. He further announced new enhanced trainer and assessor courses recognizing high quality training and trainer need known as future unlimited training and assessment courses pioneered in India. The courses will be launched in three formats.
