Boeing, Tata Advanced Materials Ltd (TAML) and Nettur Technical Training Foundation (NTTF) have launched a skills development programme to train front-line workers for the aerospace industry.
Sponsored by Boeing and conducted by NTTF, the ‘Learn and Earn’ programme offers students a three-year diploma programme in Aerospace Manufacturing Technology (Advanced Composites), rolled out under the ‘National Employ-ability Enhancement Mission’ (NEEM), a skills development initiative of the Central Government. The first batch of students was inducted at a ceremony in TAML’s Bengaluru facility. The programme involves classroom sessions on fundamental theory, behavioral skills training and vocational training in manufacturing skills at TAML.
This is a second initiative by Boeing, with training provided by NTTF, a partner of the National Skills Development Corporation (NSDC). “Boeing is committed to address the crucial and growing need for vocational training and skills development in India’s aerospace sector and he fully supports the Indian government’s efforts to promote Skill India,” said Pratyush Kumar, president, Boeing India. He added that Boeing-supported curricula and initiatives have already been launched along with aerospace partners such as Rossell Techsys, and we are working with NSDC, Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship(MSDE) and Ministry of Defence to scale it up significantly.
