Kohinoor Technical Institute partners with JSWE to impart Vocational Training on beauty and wellness programme offered under PMKVY


With an endeavour to train professionals in non-traditional sectors, institutes are providing job-ready trainings across the country in sectors like beauty and wellness which consists of thousands of micro and small enterprises (MSEs).

With this view, Kohinoor Technical Institute (KTI) and JCKRC Spa and Wellness Education (JSWE) have got into collaboration in imparting Government Approved and Industry Ready vocational training in beauty and wellness sector across the country. “Indian beauty and wellness domain is facing major challenge in terms of inadequate availability of training infrastructure, standardized training curriculum (especially at the entry level), the absence of quality trainers in sufficient numbers, easier financial access to outcome-linked skills training initiatives, as also lack of awareness about the benefits of vocational training,” KTI said in a release. Also, there is a huge demand-supply gap for a skilled manpower in the wellness and beauty sector.  This gap is deep and grim and that prompted KTI and JSWE to team up and take up a genuine and daunting task of closing this gap through this collaboration.”

The programs offered under this partnership are available under NSDC’s PMKVY scheme as well as fee-based programs will be offered that cover high value service and product training. Courses like Assistant Beauty Therapist, Assistant Hair Stylist, Manicurist & Pedicurist, Assistant Spa Therapist and Nail Technician will be offered for training. Candidate must be 10th pass and above 16 years of age. Reliable and timely placement assistance will be provided to the students to ensure that the skilled manpower gets empowered and earns livelihood, the institute said in the statement.

KTI CEO & Director Sameer Joshi said, “It’s a very happy moment for KTI to partner with JSWE to launch our new courses in beauty and wellness sector. The branch will be equipped with the latest equipment and training will be given on leading international brands of products to ensure that skills are well sought once the individuals enter the job market. Beauty and wellness industry is estimated to be around $10.5 billion category, growing upwards of 20% annually and is expected to clock similar growth rates going forward, too.”

Global Wellness Ambassador for India and eminent personality in the Beauty and Wellness Sector, Rekha Chaudhari said, “JSWE is glad to be associated with KTI and together we aim to train and empower youth in beauty and wellness sector.

A range of Beauty & Wellness courses will be first offered from KTI’s Centre in the city of Varanasi, in Sigra which is already registered with the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) as a PMKVY Centre. Post the successful setup of the Centre in Varanasi, KTI & JSWE would also expand their partnership in Maharashtra through its Aurangabad Centre.
