Strategy and Approach

1.1Training Content and Eligible Providers

  • b) All institutions, government or private (who, during the last two years, have been selected by any State Government or any Ministry of the Government of India to implement any Government funded or sponsored Scheme), or are NSDC partners, shall be deemed to be part of the approved list of training providers under this Scheme. All such deemed approved training providers will need to get each training course they propose to offer, aligned to NOS and QPs of various eligible job roles corresponding to Levels I to IV of the NVEQF/NSQF.
  • c) Those training providers, who have no prior affiliation with any government institution or NSDC, will go through a pre-screening process of the SSCs according to an Affiliation Protocol prepared by NSDC/SSC.
  • d) The willingness of a training provider to permit trainees to pay part of their fees after the monetary reward has been received, shall be considered while approval is granted for such training provider to be part of the Scheme.
  • e) No fees shall be charged by the SSCs for the approval process of training providers at Para 1.1 (b) above, for each Courseware aligned to a job role. Charges will be applicable only for training of trainers and their assessments.
  • f) The list of all the training providers in the skill development space that have been associated with any government institution shall be available on the NSDA website.
  • g) The list of all the training providers in the skill development space that are NSDC partners, and those that are pre-screened as per Para 1.1 (c) above shall be available on the NSDC website in addition to the QPs, NOS, Approved Sectors and Job Roles.
  • h) Training programs will be for a minimum of 30 days duration and will include training on social skills like health, hygiene, communication skills etc. It will be ensured that assessments are planned by SSCs only after 30 days of commencement of the training. The 30 days duration of training may also include On the Job training, Internships etc. if required.


1.2 Assessment and Certification

  • d) In due course, any institution or body offering assessment services can apply to work with specific SSCs, for designated NOS and QPs for eligible sectors and job roles.
  • e) All assessments will conform to assessment guidelines laid down by the concerned SSC for each QP.
