COMPREHENSIVE MODERNISATION OF DET
Skill development is essential to leverage demographic advantage, has been better understood by Gujarat. The Gujarat Government sponsored skill development programmes complement the state’s vibrant entrepreneurial culture. In this spirit, the Directorate of Employment and Training (DET), the nodal department for promoting employability by providing skilling through institutes and vocational training, took up a web-enabled project for comprehensive modernisation. With this project, the directorate has brought all stakeholders into direct contact, enabling efficient information exchange. Moreover, the state is effectively managing admissions, assessments and supervision with this project. The employability ratio has enhanced because of the sync that exists between the training imparted and the skills required. Now over 160 sectors, 9,480 companies, 1,000 courses and 32 lakh beneficiaries are a part of this skill development ecosystem.
