Orientation Session on Industrial Training Program at ICCI November 20, 2017
Meeting at ICCI
The Punjab Skills Development Fund (PSDF) in collaboration with Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ICCI) organized an orientation session on Industrial Training Program 2018. The training program funded by the Government of Punjab and the Department for International Development (DFID), UK aimed to support the industrial and manufacturing sectors for provision of skilled manpower and to increase access to jobs as well as income earning opportunities.
Giving a detailed presentation to the participants, Ms. Sahar Nadeem, Associate Program Development of PSDF said that instead of providing training through formal training institutes, PSDF was approaching industries and organizations to pick raw people from the market, train them as per their needs and provide them jobs in their organizations while PSDF would bear the training costs of such trainees. She said the core objective of this initiative was to equip poor people with trainings and skills so that they could earn a decent living and contribute effectively to the industrial development of the country. 
As per detail of the program, the industries/establishments and authorized service centers of industry based in Punjab and Islamabad could participate in this program through open bidding with Nov: 25, 2017 as last date for submission of bids. The bid winners will have to mobilize the trainees, train them in the high demand skills as per requirement of the industry and recruit 50% of these trained people in their industry while the training funds will be provided by PSDF. This will not only equip the trainees with the core skills but will also serve as an employment generation for the industries/manufacturers.
Speaking at the occasion, Sheikh Amir Waheed, President, Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry appreciated the initiative of Punjab Government and said that local industries and establishments should try to take benefit of this program to train people as per needs of their businesses and grow fast. He said that many innovations and new technologies were coming up in industrial, services and other business sectors and urged that training providers should develop curricula to train the trainees in latest trades so that they could play more effective role in the development of local industry and business establishments. 
Muhammad Naveed Senior Vice President and Nisar Ahmed Mirza, Vice President ICCI said that Pakistan needed to produce maximum trained people to cope with the manpower needs of CPEC projects and local industry and emphasized that all training providing institutes should play role in imparting latest trainings and skills to the youth to cater to the emerging needs of trained manpower for the country.
