Gurugram : The Bihar Skill Development mission taking a step further in skilling the youth of Bihar, launched first of its kind Recruit, Train and Deploy (RTD) model at Hotel Le-Meridian in Gurugram on Saturday.
“RTD is the first of its kind scheme modeled on providing flexibility to industry to train candidates from any location having no restriction pertaining to location specificity. The willingness of our department in collaborating with industry, SSCs, and most importantly with training providers in addressing the concerns and developing BSDM as the best model for skilling,” said IAS, Principal Secretary, Labour Resources Department and CEO, Bihar Skill Development Mission, Dipak Kumar Singh.
“RTD is an effort in the direction of helping industries and TPs. Kudos to the State Project Management Unit team from EY LLP, ably led by Project Director, Mr. Amit Kumar Pandey for the overall implementation of different skill training programs undertaken by BSDM,” he added.
To have industry perspective and the inputs from various stake holder categories, mission invited Sector Skill Councils, HR Recruitment Agencies and key training providers to attend the event. The event saw the participation of more than 10 SSCs including LSSSDC, RSDC, TSSC, DWSSC, Textile, THSC, Furniture & Fitting, Capital Goods, Media etc.
Most of the SSCs welcomed the ‘RTD model’, especially the flexibility to industry partners in exercising the trainings and the modularity it provides in trained workers on the job.
SSCs also stressed on the role that they can play in the ‘RTD model’. Some suggestions were provided in terms of engaging SSC to bring industry associations and developing quality training programs.
As the program doesn’t mandate the SSC certification of candidates trained by industry, Mr. Sachin Sachdeva from Life Science Sector Skill Development Council said, for training done in their sector, their certification should be made mandatory keeping DCGI regulatory guidelines in mind.
Training providers welcomed the new provision and the flexibility the RTD is providing.
Leading stakeholders including corporates such as representatives from NSDC, Sector Skill Councils, Amazon, Microsoft, Samsung, IBM, GE, CREDAI, TCS, HCL, Apollo Medicals, Tata Motors, Mahindra & Mahindra, ICICI Foundation, ASMAC, Government Officials, attended the program.
“We have onsite skilling models with makeshift class rooms for the purpose of training aspiring candidates,” said S Roy from CREDAI.
