Government Supported Training
At both state and central level, government commitment to skilling and upskilling the Indian youth and workforce has resulted in a comprehensive framework of funding schemes and incentive opportunities. As a result, participants are provided incentives by the Government to undertake training and/or find that their courses are heavily subsidized.
High quality skills learning at certificate and diploma level is widely acknowledged as integral to maintaining and increasing India’s competitive advantage in a global marketplace. Given that enhancing the productivity of the Indian workforce through Learning & Development is a key responsibility of government, a range of complementary Central and state-based schemes now serve to fund or subsidise the upskilling of employees across all industries.
Government-funded training is at the core of what we do and we are dedicated to providing industry, regardless of age, with the skills and knowledge relevant to their job role as well as assisting employers in building and training a motivated and skilled workforce.
Our programmes, aimed at anyone from the age 18 upwards, are extremely flexible and we can work with you to identify shortages in skills and deliver tailor-made funded courses that will overcome the shortfall. Our team of experts are committed to delivering bespoke training programmes that will not only enhance your workforce but also transform your company to become a more productive and successful business. In 2011, AV Infosys joined NSDC (National Skill Development Corporation) as one of its training partners to accomplish NSDC mission of skilling 150 Million people by 2022. Today, we are proud to be the pioneers in Vocational Training extending our services in the sector of IT/ITES, Electronics, Telecom, Retail, BFSI, Automotive, etc. AV Infosys is also authorized training partner of NCVT and executing Training projects for Government of Karnataka, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, UP, J&K, Kerala, Orissa, Punjab and Maharashtra.
The main goal is to create opportunities, space and scope for the development of the talents of the Indian youth and to develop more of those sectors which have already been put under skill development for the last so many years and also to identify new sectors for skill development. The new program aims at providing training and skill development to 500 million youth of our country by 2020, covering each and every village. Various schemes are also proposed to achieve this objective.
Currently, only a very small proportion of India’s workforce has any formal skill training. Not surprisingly therefore several sectors of the country’s economy face shortage of skilled people and are mired with low productivity levels due to poor quality of workforce. At the same time, large sections of the country’s youth are looking for economic and livelihood opportunities. In this context, skill development has become a key priority area for the country. This is not only essential for economic development, but would help to fulfill youth aspirations for good quality, better paid jobs and self-employment opportunities. This would also enable the country to take advantage of its favorable demographic profile. With a large pool of skilled people, India has an opportunity to become a skill provider for the world, particularly the ageing developed world.
Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) is the flagship outcome-based skill training scheme of the new Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE). This skill certification and reward scheme aims to enable and mobilize a large number of Indian youth to take up skill training and become employable and earn their livelihood. Under the scheme, monetary reward would be provided to trainees who are successfully trained, assessed and certified in skill courses run by affiliated training providers. This will boost the productivity of the country’s workforce by enabling them to acquire high quality skill training across a range of sectors. It will also bring about a paradigm shift from input-based to outcome-based skill training in the country. It also seeks to significantly scale up skill training activities in the country and enable skill training to happen at a fast pace without compromising quality. Institutional arrangements comprising of the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), Sector Skill Councils (SSCs), Assessing agencies and Training Partners are already in place for implementation of the scheme.
The objective of this Scheme is to encourage skill development for youth by providing placement linked skill training. Specifically, the Scheme aims to:
- Providing 60 lakh youth with the opportunity to get trained, assessed and certified.
- Aligning the competencies of 40 lakh indivisuals from the un-regulated workforce with the NSQF.
- Enabling a platform that will facilitate trainings in special areas and premises of Government bodies and Corporates.
- Linking the aptitude, aspiration, and knowledge of PMKVY candidates to potential employers.
