State government of Gujarat has been enterprising in taking up skilling as an important agenda in its mandate. It has strongly embedded the core principle of “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas” in all its initiatives. The state envisages to align its skill development to the National Skill Development Mission (NSDM). The geographical, demographic and social profile of Gujarat presents a unique opportunity for economic growth through skilling of manpower.
The geographic advantage of 1600 kms. coastline gives Gujarat a strong connect with trade routes of many countries. It makes Gujarat a high contributor in the GDP of the country. Government of Gujarat considers skill development for better employment generation and inclusive growth as the way to rapid and sustainable growth.
Scenario of apprenticeship training in Gujarat:
In order to further strengthen the apprenticeship training in Gujarat and enhance the impact of a flagship scheme, Mukhyamantri Apprenticeship Training Scheme (MATS) has been launched in 2018, by the state government in alignment with National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme (NAPS).The scheme incentivises the industries through the plan drawn below:
Graduate Apprentices – Rs. 3000 per month
Diploma Apprentices – Rs. 2000 per month
Trade & Other Apprentices – Rs. 1500 month
This is over and above the reimbursement given under NAPS & NATS.
The key beneficiaries of this flagship schemes is the industries who will collaborate in implementation of apprenticeship training scheme. They will be incentivised for their initiatives. The apprentices trained under the scheme will also benefit through active involvement of industries in the training.
Around 8 government departments are involved in skill training in Gujarat. MATS has brought all these departments under one umbrella and seeks active participation to achieve maximum targets in apprenticeship training in various sectors and spheres.
MATS has adopted a holistic approach similar to NAPS. It not only includes training in manufacturing sectors but also in various service sectors. This has led to broader horizons for the trainees to take up apprenticeship training.
