JN Tata Vocational Training Institute (JNTVTI) Scales New Horizons in providing Quality Training & Employment to the Youth
Building Potential, Transforming Lives....
JN Tata Vocational Training Institute (JNTVTI)’ is a public charitable trust driven by the Capability Development Department of Tata Steel. The objective of the Trust is to provide skill-based vocational training in various sectors for employability, based on demand and entrepreneurship opportunities to the eligible and interested youth. Set-up by Tata Steel Ltd. in 2015, for JNTVTI skill is as much a priority as education and this institute provides a window to industry for the aspiring youth.
JNTVTI is offering seven full time industrial training courses, namely, Site Safety Supervisor, Mechanical Supervisor, Crane Operator-cum-Rigger, Hydraulic Technician, Mechanical Fitter-cum-Rigger, Electrician and Welder–cum-Gas Cutter. Site Safety Supervisor, Mechanical Supervisor and Rigger courses are 5 months duration courses, Hydraulic Technician is 3 months duration course, while the remaining three are 12 months duration training programmes. All the training courses have been developed after assessing the industry requirements so that all those trained at JNTVTI gain fruitful employment with vendors of Tata Steel as well as other organisations which have shown interest in JNTVTI trained trainees.
Prize money from the winnings of the award money of Prime Ministers’ Trophy for The Best Integrated Steel Plant has come handy in putting up the training infrastructure in the heart of Jamshedpur town in the campus of now non-functional Mrs KMPM Inter College. The expansion of the institute is on so that it becomes something like a skill university which contributes immensely towards the objective of Skill India.
A landmark today, JNTVTI has now been recognised as Training Provider by the Indian Iron & Steel Skill Sector Council of National Skill Development Corporation. This is a significant achievement in its journey towards excellence in the field of skill development.
A DIFFERENT APPROACH TOWARDS PLACEMENT
In words of Mr.Prakash Singh, Chief Capability Development, Tata Steel, ‘JNTVTI is different from other Vocational Training Institute’s because we first tie up with the recruiters and hold discussions about the CTC they will offer to the trainees once they complete their course. We aim to identify Jharkhand youths and provide them training which in turn helps them get a job’.
The Trust intends to impart such vocational training under various skill development schemes run by the Central and State Governments. An MoU has also been signed between the Trust and The Govt. of India under the Flexi-MoU Scheme run by the latter, noted Singh.
