To fulfil its objectives of enhancing, supporting and coordinating private sector initiatives for skill development, NSDC is looking for proposals to create Sector Skill Councils that can focus on skill development for a particular industry sector, and which can be the organisation to bring together all stake holders to manage current and future skill needs of that industry sector. Apart from the 31 Sector Skill Councils (SSCs) approved by NSDC Board till date, we are seeking to add 4 more SSCs in the current financial year. NSDC requests you to study the proposal submission guidelines to understand NSDC's evaluation criteria.

Master Affiliation Protocol Document

We are pleased to release the master copy of the Affiliation Protocol Document. Henceforth all Affiliation initiatives of the SSCs will be under the guidelines set by this document. It is requested that if any SSC has put into circulation any Affiliation Document prior to release of this document, it may please be withdrawn and made non-functional with
immediate effect.

The various fees portions are kept blank and are left to the discretion of the SSCs. There will be a differential fee structure for the NSDC funded partners and non-NSDC funded partners. It is recommended that the endeavour of the SSC to affiliate the NSDC funded partner should be to cover the costs only.

Steps for Usage

All those SSCs who are keen to initiate affiliation process will ask NSDC for the editable word copy. This document has two parts, the first part covers general guidelines which are common for all SSCs and are non-negotiable and the second part has SSC Specific Requirements which can be populated wherever applicable by the concerned SSC. In case there are no requirements of the SSC, the same area can simply say “None”. Under no circumstance, this column will be deleted. After adding information under the SSC Specific Requirements columns, add your SSC logo on the header portion on the right hand corner of the page.

Please convert this document to a pdf and send a copy to NSDC for information and upload it on your website for usage.

The document talks of SDMS system (Skills Development Management System) currently under test at NSDC. All SSCs will be able to link to this SDMS system very shortly. SDMS will automate the affiliation process.
