ATDC Vocational Institute
ATDC Vocational Institutes are a vital part of the vocational training system for careers in apparel, fashion and textile leading to award of Certificate, Diploma and Advance Diploma by ATDC and certification through National Council of Vocational Training (NCVT), DGET, Ministry of Labour & Employment to provide the key production and quality related personnel to the Apparel Industry.
ATDC Vocational Institutes portray an important role in ushering in a positive contribution to the apparel export manufacturing industry which has been facing acute shortage of skilled workforce and technical personnel with demand for trained professionals' far outstripping supply. It is the only organization which offers shopfloor, supervisory and managerial level trainings/courses within the education and training eco-system.
ATDC by taking proactive steps developed innovative curricula for the Apparel-Textile-Fashion sectors and also aligned its courses with the Modular Employable Skills (MES) scheme under the Skill Development Initiative Scheme (SDIS) promoted by Directorate General of Employment & Training (DGE&T), Ministry of Labour & Employment as well as curricula for Fashion Design, Textile Design, Apparel Manufacturing and Fashion Management for AICTE under NVEQF.
With focus on “employability”, especially for school dropouts and less educated youth, ATDC Vocational Institutes gives a new direction and thrust to skill development in the labour-intensive apparel sector that operates in a globally competitive environment. The curricula is comprehensive and based on core subjects going beyond just academic knowledge but also facilitating development of concepts, ideas and skills besides providing the much needed fee support to the learner.
Also, digital learning is now being integrated as part of skill training programmes at all ATDC Vocational Institutes. ATDC Vocational Institutes mainstreams vocational education and offer modularity, lateral and vertical mobility with focus on 'employability and flexibility” with different inputs being acquired by the students for different level of certification to join the 'fibre to fashion' value chain.
