Paving Path For Skilled Empowered India


AIILSG to provide employment linked skills training courses in Ranchi, Deoghar, Jaipur, Kota and in the cities of Gujarat to enable youngsters to enter into competitive industrial, service and corporate arena working towards its vision of enhancing the employability of youth through skill development, AIILSG was selected by Jharkhand Skill Development Mission to establish and operate Mega Skill Development Center in Jharkhand in PPP mode.


This project is aimed at increasing the employability of the youth and empowering them to take part in the economic growth of Jharkhand and India and thereby reduce unemployment and under-employment. “The institute will focus on imparting skills by driving various full time and certificate skill enhancement courses in the healthcare sector. AIILSG is also working closely in other focused sectors to create a pool of skilled workforce, said Ravi Ranjan Guru, Senior Executive Director AIILSG. He added that AIILSG believes that the key element for the successful implementation of the Mega Skill Centre in Jharkhand would be community participation and mobilisation.


The objective is to make participants from all sections of society a part of the Jharkhand’s skill development movement. Community participation would take the people a step beyond just utilisation of services and being passive users, to a level where they would want to be a part of the skill development for the future of their family and community. Likewise, community mobilisation would bring together and empower members of the community from various sectors to raise awareness about the skill development program

Employment linked skills training courses in Jaipur and Kota


AIILSG has also signed an MoU with Rajasthan Skill & Livelihoods Development Corporation (RSLDC) for implementation and execution of its ambitious Employment Linked Skills Training Program (ELSTP)  in Jaipur and Kota. The objective of the ambitious program is to train youth from the economically weaker sections of society and help them with exploring wage/ self-employment opportunities within and outside the state. This program will uplift and employ over 900 beneficiaries over a period of three years.
AIILSG believes that this project will boost employment opportunities for school dropouts, 10th or 12th pass outs, and unemployed graduates. Implementation of ELSTP courses will create a catalytic impact on the growth of Rajasthan thereby reducing unemployment and underemployment. Saikat Mukherjee, Project Head, Skill Development Cell, AIILSG, said, “the courses are specifically designed by experts to nurture and uplift students’ vocational skills, technical abilities, and soft skills”. He added that the new skill development centres in Jaipur and Kota are being set up under PPP model which will deliver short-term programs across industry sectors including renewable energy, electronics, retail, etc. Many of these programs are linked with wage employment and self-employment to set up micro enterprises.


Employment through skill training and placement program in Gujarat


Gujarat Urban Livelihood Mission (GULM) also selected AIILSG to establish and operate Skill Development Centers in the state of Gujarat. The project is aimed to increase the income of urban poor through structured, market-oriented certified courses that can provide salaried employment and self-employment opportunities which will eventually lead to better living standards and alleviation of urban poverty on a sustainable basis.
The focus would be on training of the urban poor to enable them set up self-employment ventures and be fit for salaried jobs in the private sector. The EST&P Program intends to fill the gap between the demand and availability of local skills by providing skill training programs as required by the market. Towards achieving this objective, AIILSG has established Multi Trade Skill Development Centre in Ahmedabad with a skill training capacity of 500 beneficiaries per year. AIILSG will open similar skill development centres in seven municipal corporations in the state.
