Workshop on TITP organized

ITANAGAR, Oct 31: The skill development & entrepreneurship (SDE) department on Thursday organised a workshop on the technical internship training programme (TITP) at the Dorjee Khandu convention centre here, in collaboration with the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).
The workshop was aimed at discussing the implementation of the TITP, sensitizing the youths, and deciding on ways to collaborate in future endeavours.
SDE Secretary NT Glow highlighted the importance of skilling the youths and providing them with employment opportunities. He said the TITP would be “a new vista, wherein the youth would not only learn new language, culture and skills but also get an opportunity to work in a country like Japan.”
The TITP is an initiative of the union ministry of SDE (MSDE). The governments of India and Japan had signed a memorandum of cooperation in Japan in October 2017 to allow participation of Indian youths under the TITP. The central government aims to improve India’s national productivity by exposing Indian youths to Japanese industrial skills through the TITP.
The MSDE has appointed the NSDC to be the implementing and monitoring agency of the programme.
The workshop was a first of its kind in Arunachal, and provided a platform to aspiring candidates to interact with representatives of the NSDC and sending organisations which organise training and send candidates to Japan for internships.
The workshop was of high significance as Japan plans to conduct special recruitment for nursing jobs from Northeast India. “It will lay the foundation for the youths of Arunachal going to Japan for TITP,” a release from the SDE department said.
Apart from SDE Minister Tumke Bagra and NSDC MD Dr Manish Kumar, the workshop was attended by officers from various departments, and youths trained in healthcare, construction, tourism, automobile sector, etc.
