Apparel Made-Ups & Home Furnishing Sector Skill Council (AMHSSC), since its inception, has been proactively spearheading the skilling initiatives under the aegis of Ministry of Skill Development &Entrepreneurship, Government of India.
In an endeavour to realise Hon’ble Prime Minister’s dream to make India, “SkillCapital of the world”, the Council has set standards for 45 Apparel Job roles on which trainings are imparted to meet the industry requirements and provide opportunities to the employment seekers. Having established a network of more than 4500 training partners, 46 assessment agencies with a fleet of more than 1900 certified Assessors, 8000 certified trainers and 115 master trainers, the Council has also gained recognition as the “highest placement provider” to the skilled and certified candidates under the PMKVY scheme.
The Council has been working closely with almost all State Skill Missions and has established close links with various PSUs and Corporates for the promotion of Skill India Mission across the country. The council, through its initiatives, has not only skilled large force of freshers through short term trainings but has also certified existing workers in Apparel industry by recognizing their skills under the Recognition of Prior learning (RPL) Scheme, thereby adding pride in the worker at the shop floor level and thus enhancing their self-esteem.
It gives me immense pleasure to take on the role ofChairman of this Council. I am committed to steer the organisation towards meeting the skill requirements of the Industry while maintaining highest standards of transparency and quality. A great work has been done by the Council for ensuring quality skilling standards and career progression of human capital of our nation and as Chairman it would be my endeavour to encourage proactive industry engagement to support skilling eco-system.
