  • National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme (NAPS)

    India now has a very liberal apprenticeship regime - very similar to German and Swiss Vocational Educational Trainings. National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme (NAPS)  is incentivizing the corporates to train and hire apprentices even in non-technical/service/staff level jobs by reimbursing 25% stipend per month per candidate (up to INR 1500/-), in turn helping them meet their long-term workforce requirement by creating a pool of skilled manpower across different sectors. NAPS will directly link the Job Roles to Jobs to create a mutual value addition spiral for the candidates (skills levels) and the employer (business income)

  • Recognition of Prior Learning – Type 4

    While there is an urgent need for skill training across the country, the absence of sufficient training avenues prevents the people from acquiring skill training and certification through formal channels. As a result, most of the skill acquisition takes place through informal channels such as family occupation, on-the-job training under master craftsman, etc. These skills go unrecognized as they are not acquired through formal means and are never formally recognized. This prevents some section of skilled workforce from accessing formal employment opportunities, utilizing their experience to further taking up educational course and benefitting from other career progression opportunities available through formal training system. Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is defined as the process of recognizing previous/ prior learning, often experiential, towards gaining a qualification. The program trains, assesses and certifies those who have acquired their skills informally.
