APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING PROGRAMME
Development of human resource is crucial for industrial development. Up-gradation of skills is an important component of HRD. Training imparted in Institutions alone is not sufficient for acquisition of skills and this need to be supplemented by training in the actual work place. Apprentices Act, 1961, was enacted with the following objectives: –
- To regulate the programme of training of apprentices in the industry so as to conform to the syllabi, period of training etc. as laid down by the Central Apprenticeship Council;
- To fully utilize the facilities available in industry for imparting practical training with a view to meeting the requirements of skilled manpower for industry.
Under the Apprenticeship Training Programme, 50 trainees have successfully passed the Apprenticeship Exam.
