The New Year marks the beginning of new projects and fulfilment of new dreams. With continued upward growth, the leather industry will demand many skilled workers who can deliver as per global standards and quality. As you are aware, the agenda for skilling them is being implemented on a mission mode with several programs for short term training, RPL, B.Voc., and Apprenticeships. LSSC has been at the forefront of recognizing the skills and knowledge of existing employees in the companies through RPL4. I would like to see more participation for Best in Class companies for certifying their workforce under RPL Type-4.
I am happy to inform you that LSSC, as National Monitoring Unit (NMU) under HRD sub-scheme of Indian Footwear Leather and Accessories Development Program (IFLADP) Scheme will play a crucial role in monitoring skill development projects. This includes providing technical support, evaluation and maintaining the database of all the trainees for all the projects and verification of placements and periodic submission of report. This is a great opportunity to impact the industry through skilled workforce and contribute to the success of Skill India mission. I wish you great success in 2019!
