State government of Gujarat has been enterprising in taking up skilling as an important agenda in its mandate. It has strongly embedded the core principle of “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas” in all its initiatives. The state envisages to align its skill development to the National Skill Development Mission (NSDM). The geographical, demographic and social profile of Gujarat presents a unique opportunity for economic growth through skilling of manpower.
In order to further strengthen the apprenticeship training in Gujarat and enhance the impact of a flagship scheme, Mukhyamantri Apprenticeship Yojana has been launched in 2018, by the state government in alignment with National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme (NAPS).
