National Apprenticeship Mela-2022 will be organized across the country in more than over 700 locations today. Skill India, in association with the Directorate General of Training, is organizing the day-long Apprenticeship Mela across the country. Under the initiative, the aim is to support hiring of more than one lakh apprentices and assist employers in tapping the right talent and developing it further with training and providing practical skillsets.

The event will witness participation from more than four thousand organizations across the country, operating in more than 30 sectors such as Power, Retail, Telecom, IT/ITeS, Electronics, and Automotive. In addition, the aspiring youth will have the opportunity to engage and select from more than 500 trades including Welder, Electrician, Housekeeper, Beautician, and Mechanic.

The National Policy of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2015. It recognizes apprenticeship as a means to provide gainful employment to a skilled workforce with adequate compensation. Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship has also taken several efforts to increase the number of apprentices hired by enterprises in the country. The aim is to fill the gap in supply and demand for a skilled workforce and meet the aspirations of the Indian youth through gaining on-the-job training and securing better opportunities for employment. Students, who have cleared at least Class 5 to those who graduated Class 12, skill training certificate holders, ITI students, diploma holders, and graduates are eligible to apply at the Apprenticeship Mela.
