Education Information

The Union Minister for Human Resource Development Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ said that the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) is working along with Sector Skill Councils (SSCs) under National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to develop courses and curricula for Apprenticeship/Internship embedded degree/diploma programmes with core focus on development of knowledge, skills, aptitude and on-job training with Industry exposure. These steps are being taken to enhance job orientation and employability of graduates/undergraduates students.

SSCs are working with Autonomous Universities/Institutions and State Governments for introducing the Apprenticeship/Internship embedded degree/ diploma programmes. MHRD is working along with the SSCs to mobilize the Higher Educational Institutions to adopt the courses which are being developed by them. As a result, some of the sectors like Logistics & retail have commenced degree Apprenticeship programmes in 15 institutions across the country. Further, various institutions have expressed interest to take up the courses in near future. Media & Entertainment Sector Skill Council (MESC) have signed MoUs with 150 institutions to conduct skill oriented BSc., BBA, BVoc. Courses in the media and entertainment sector. Also, Logistics Sector Council (LSC) has aligned with about 65 institutions to commence apprenticeship embedded degree, diploma and engineering programmes.
