As part of the government of India’s “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav” effort, the Apparel Made-Ups and Home Furnishing Sector Skill Council (AMHSSC) today launched an online free skill training programme called “Apne Ghar Se Kare Silai Ka Pradhikaran” to deliver guidance on bag making skills. All female candidates who want to know the basics of sewing from their homes are encouraged to apply for this programme. It is intended to complete the training module in 4 days. In addition to bag making, instruction will be provided in the making of masks, aprons, kurtas, and other basic apparel. These participants would then be subsequently connected with the garment manufacturing firms for better chances after successfully completing the training sessions. The authority predicts that there will be a significant global market for plastic alternatives, not only in India.
Skill development Initiatives: The broad road to the Nation’s Growth
The India Skills Report 2021 estimates that only 45.9% of young people would be considered employable. While India struggles with a skills shortage, better access to opportunities for skill development can narrow the growing gap between employment opportunities and a skilled workforce. By putting the New Education Policy (NEP) into practice, teachers will be better able to impart knowledge in local languages and offer classes in crucial disciplines like the humanities and health care. The Skill India Mission, launched in 2015, aimed to train more than 40 crore people in various skill fields. Initiatives like the National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme (NAPS) are adding fuel to this goal.
