DGT in the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE) has received a Credit from IDA (International Development Association) under the Vocational Training Improvement Project.
The Apprenticeship training provides an industry-led, practice oriented, effective and efficient mode of formal training and is crucial for skilling the workforce. The apprenticeship training has been implemented since 1961 but so far it has not been able to penetrate through the social strata and reach the grass-root level. By keeping the same in view and to popularize the apprentice training a new scheme National Apprenticeship promotion Scheme (NAPS) has been launched on 19 August 2016 under Apprenticeship Act 1961.
Therefore, DGT intends to engage a professionally qualified consultant to develop and implement an effective communication strategy. DGT invites Expression of Interest for selection of a consultancy firm for “Development and Implementation of Communications Strategy and it‟s Support” for a period of 2 years, with a view to promote apprenticeship training under innovation sub-component Vocational Training Improvement Project (VTIP) assisted by World Bank.
