AISECT, one of India’s education and skill development organization has recently joined hands as a knowledge partner with the Entrepreneurship Development Institute of India (EDII) for conducting self-employment based skill development training for youth in vocational trades. The first such training program, sponsored by Small Industries Development Bank of India (SIDBI) and conducted at AISECT’s Training Centre in Nagpur, saw 25 candidates registering to undergo a month-long training in motor-winding course. The event was flagged off by Vinay Verma, Assistant Faculty, EDII and Latoor Singh Verma, State Head – Maharashtra & Goa, AISECT.
With the new Government’s focus on ‘Make in India’ and ‘Skill India’, placement-linked skill development training is gaining momentum across the nation. EDII, which focuses on creating young entrepreneurs in the country, has tied up with SIDBI for financial assistance in the form of grant for conducting Technical Entrepreneurship Development Programmes (TEDPs). Moreover, with its forte of technical expertise and mobilization of candidates, EDII’s association with AISECT will ensure well-equipped infrastructure and conditions for training and placement support post-training, they claim.
Underlining the importance of this program, Latoor Singh Verma said, “This program gives the technical base to develop entrepreneurship for the youth. It is a matter of pride for AISECT to give technical training support to all candidates undergoing motor-winding training at Nagpur from 3rd March to 27th March.”
Imparting motor-winding training was a fresh ground for AISECT. It has been a good 10 days of training and candidates looked comfortable working with the equipment, they added. “The candidates seemed keenly interested in the programme. EDII is conducting 20 such programmes across India and looking at the positive response. We are hoping for a knowledge partnership with AISECT for upcoming projects in the future”, said Vinay Verma.
