Union Minister for Human Resource Development (HRD) Prakash Javadekar launched a scheme for providing industry apprenticeship opportunities to recent graduates.
The Scheme for Higher Education Youth in Apprenticeship and Skills (SHREYAS) is a programme curriculum which comprises initiatives of three central ministries, Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, the HRD ministry and the Ministry of Labour and Employment.
“The education with skills is the need of the hour, and the SHREYAS will be a major effort in this direction to make our degree students more skilled, capable, employable and aligned to the needs of our economy so that they contribute to country’s progress and also obtain gainful employment,” said Javadekar, as reported by Hindustan Times.
The SHREYAS portal shall enable the industry and educational institutions to log in and provide their respective demand and supply of apprenticeship. Furthermore, the courses shall be available from academic year April-May 2019, and more than 40 higher educational institutions have collaborated to take up this apprenticeship programme.
