The Apparel industry is one of the fastest growing industries in India with the export industry growing at a fast clip. Given the natural demand for skilled & semi-skilled workforce in this sector, CUTM has started a training program for Sewing Machine Operators.
The training program, conducted over a period of two months imparts basic skill necessary to become a shop floor level operator in the apparel production industry for any physically fit youth with or without any qualification. The training content has been developed based on inputs from the NIFT in partnership with industry to meet global best practices and communicated in multimedia format. Bringing together these three factors- large numbers of poor, unskilled youth with limited education, large gap between need and availability of skill manpower in the industry, and finally the need for higher standards of efficiency and productivity-a formal structured training that can equip a large number of people within a short time to meet the demands of the apparel Industry. The partnership in the program hinges on the commitment of the industry to partake in the training process and employ persons trained.
