The Apparel Training and Design Centre (ATDC) has recently signed an MoU(Memorandum of Understanding) with the AICTE, under which it would offer various vocational programmes in apparel manufacturing, entrepreneurship, fashion design and retailing. This initiative is expected to bridge the gap between the skilled manpower requirements and its availability presently in the field of apparel industry.
Under the National Skill Qualification Framework (NSFQ) scheme the recently signed MoU between ATDC and AICTE would see the approval of AICTE to all the 30 training centres run by ATDC in the nation. ATDC is named as the largest vocational training provider in the nation and have been approved by AICTE as the “skill knowledge provider (SKP)”.
The initiative taken by AICTE and ATDC is aligned with ATDC’s long-term courses for recognition and certification in the field of fashion and apparel. This programme would promote skill-based competency and would provide various career opportunities to students who would opt for the programmes and train themselves with career driven opportunities for future.
