  • UPSSDM will prepare a State Skill development Program, drawing upon all resources that may be available in any department and under any central scheme for the purpose, and will implement this program in consultation with and collaboration of all the concerned departments, in an integrated manner.

Up-gradation and Up-scaling of Government ITI/ITCs/Polytechnics

Engaging with Private Sector
  • The existing government and private infrastructure of ITIs, Polytechnics and Technical degree institutions is not capable of providing skill training to 15-20 lakh youth every year, which is the target. Therefore, engaging with private sector training providers through a well designed PPP strategy will be the key strategy.

  • A well designed PPP policy will be the key to the success of the programme. The policy will enable long term partnerships (3 to 4 years) with reputed private training providers who shall be empanelled on the basis of technical qualifications and shall be paid notified training costs linked to placement. The method of empanelment, assignment to districts and allocation of courses to training providers will be made following a transparent methodology that should achieve the objectives of enabling economies of scale for the provider, benefitting from the specialisation of providers in specific sectors and wider choice to state. Course curriculum for these trainings shall be prepared in collaboration with employers and academicians to ensure that.
