The programme titled "Udaan" wants to bring about a change in the employment and skills space in J&K through an action oriented agenda
About the Project:
Skill development in Jammu and Kashmir has been a challenge and continues to be one. This programme is a unique partnership between NSDC and the corporate sector.
The National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and Ministry of Home Affairs have been mandated to work with the corporate sector in bringing about a positive change in the employment and skills space of Jammu and Kashmir. The Special Industry Initiative, known as “Udaan”, targets the youth of J&K, specifically graduates and postgraduates, who are seeking global and local opportunities. Udaan thereby aims to provide skills to 40, 000 youth over a period of 5 years in high growth sectors. Udaan has two objectives:
- To provide exposure to the graduates and post graduates of Jammu and Kashmir to the best of corporate India.
- To provide corporate India with exposure to the rich talent pool available in the state.
The training duration of the program is 3 months, at the end of which the candidates would be placed. The Company has trained 670 candidates under this project till date.
