MORE ABOUT US :--
Women constitute about 48% of the total population of the country. But, in employment market, out of the 459.1 million employed population in 2004-2005, women are only about 148 million. Even of this, only about 5 million women are in organized sector while remaining 143 million are in un-organized sector.
Realizing that the process of social development has to take into account the needs, interests and viewpoints of both men & women alike; and looking at the situation of women, gender inequalities and inequities that existed, special gender specific programmes were formulated and organized to mainstream women into economic activities.
The WOMEN’S VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMME at Ministry of Labour & Employment, Directorate General of Employment and Training (DGE&T) was designed and launched in 1977. The programme attempts to promote the women employment in industry (mainly organized sector) as semi-skilled/skilled & highly skilled workers by increasing their participation in skill training facilities under Craftsmen Training Scheme and Craft Instructors Training Scheme. Programme also offers higher skill training for the Instructors of various skill training organizations. To achieve this objective women exclusive Institutes have been set up.
