Skill Development Ministry launches Fellowship Prog with IIM Bangalore

Skill Development Ministry launches Fellowship Prog with IIM Bangalore

New Delhi, Oct 9 (UNI) To boost skill development at the district level, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship on Wednesday signed a contract with the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore for introducing a two-year fellowship programme Mahatma Gandhi National Fellowship (MGNF) programme.

The program has been developed under the able guidance and leadership of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Dr Mahendra Nath Pandey who has given a renewed focus to skill development at the district level, since his joining at the Ministry.

Designed under Skills Acquisition and Knowledge Awareness for Livelihood Promotion (SANKALP) the fellowship aims to address the challenge of non-availability of personnel for implementation of various programmes at national, state and district levels.

The MGNF programme has an in-built component of on-ground practical experience with the district administration. Launched on a pilot basis in 75 districts across Gujarat, Karnataka, Meghalaya, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and Uttarakhand, eligible fellows for the programme have to be in 21-30 years age-group, have a graduation degree from a recognized university and be citizens of India.

Launched by the Government in January 2018, SANKALP is a World Bank loan assisted project that aims to strengthen institutional mechanisms for skill development and increase access to quality and market-relevant training for youth across the country.

Four key result areas have been identified under SANKALP are Institutional Strengthening; Quality Assurance; Inclusion; and Expanding Skills through PPPs.
