From the Director’s Desk
In contemporary, stiffly competitive environment, Industry is looking at employable manpower and is unwilling to bear or share the burden of skilling the unskilled. This response, as one can understand, appears to have been driven by competitive market forces and shopfloor technological advancement evolving at a rapid pace. Directorate of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship has a mandate to provide continuous flow of skilled workforce into the Industry in different trades/vocations covering traditional and emerging sectors like Automobile, Fabrication, Hospitality, IT and other service sectors.
The Department has under its ambit 10 Government ITIs and 3 ITIs from the Private Sector offering Engineering and Non Engineering courses. These unskilled youth of the State are provided with vocational skill training in different skill sectors through conventional and multiskilling programmes. Additionally, every Government ITI is governed by an Institute Management Committee (IMC) headed by a prominent Industrialist. The IMC acts as an effective feedback mechanism for catalyzing continuous improvement in our training standards.
We are also moving towards the fulfillment of the expectation of Hon’ble Prime Minister by implementing Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) in the State. Prime Ministers National Apprenticeship Mela (PMNAM) was also organized in the State of Goa. Also Hon’ble Chief Minister by implementing Chief Minister Kaushalya Path Scheme (CMKPS). Chief Minister Apprenticeship Policy was implemented in this year in the State under which this year. More than 10000 trainees engaged as apprentices in various Government Departments and Private Sectors in the State. Human Resource Development Foundation (HRDF) under which 55 institutes impart various short terms courses for the youth of Goa state.
We have a dedicated team of Officers and Principals, Group Instructors and Instructors who are working tirelessly towards achieving the goal of empowering the youth of the State with employable skills.

It is also hoped that our faculty and trainees will put this site to fruitful use, while exposing themselves to the vast frontiers of know-how, thus achieving progress in our efforts to think globally, while acting locally.
