Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana 3.0: Registration
Key components: Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana 3.0
1. Short Term Training
Candidates of Indian nationality who are either school/college dropouts or unemployed are expected to benefit from the Short Term Training provided at Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana 3.0 Training Centres (TCs). In addition to delivering training in accordance with the National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF), TCs must also provide training in Soft Skills, Entrepreneurship, Financial Literacy, and Digital Literacy. The training duration varies by job role and ranges between 150 and 300 hours.
Training Partners will assist candidates with placement after they have successfully completed their assessment (TPs). The government pays the complete training and assessment fees under PMKVY. Payouts must be made to TPs in accordance with the Common Norms. Trainings provided under the Scheme’s Short Term Training component must be NSQF Level 5 or lower.
2. Recognition of Prior Learning
Individuals with prior learning experience or skills will be evaluated and certified under the Scheme’s Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) component. RPL attempts to align the competencies of the country’s unregulated workforce with the NSQF. Project Implementing Agencies (PIAs), such as Sector Skill Councils (SSCs) or any other agencies authorised by MSDE/NSDC, will be encouraged to carry out RPL projects in any of the three Project Types (RPL Camps, RPL at Employers Premises and RPL centres). Bridge Courses may be offered by PIAs to RPL candidates to fill knowledge gaps.
3. Special Projects
The Special Projects component of Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana 3.0 envisions the development of a platform to facilitate trainings in special areas and/or premises of Government bodies, Corporates, or Industry bodies, as well as trainings in special job roles not defined by the available Qualification Packs (QPs)/National Occupational Standards (NOSs). Special Projects are projects that necessitate a modification from the terms and conditions of PMKVY Short Term Training for any stakeholder. A proposing stakeholder can be either the Central and State Government(s)/Autonomous Entity/Statutory Body or any other analogous body or corporates that wish to provide applicants with training.
4. Kaushal and Rozgar Mela
Social and community mobilisation is key to PMKVY’s success. Active community participation guarantees openness and accountability, and it aids in harnessing the community’s collective expertise for better functioning. In accordance with this, PMKVY places a premium on involving target beneficiaries through a well-defined mobilisation process. Every six months, TPs must have Kaushal and Rozgar Melas with press/media coverage; they must also actively participate in National Career Service Melas and on-ground activities.
5. Placement Guidelines
PMKVY intends to connect the aptitude, aspiration, and knowledge of the skilled workforce it generates with market employment opportunities and demands. As a result, the PMKVY TCs must make every effort to give placement possibilities to individuals who have been trained and certified under the Scheme. TPs must also encourage the growth of entrepreneurship.
6. Monitoring Guidelines
To guarantee that PMKVY TCs maintain high quality standards, NSDC and empaneled Inspection Agencies shall employ a variety of approaches, including self-audit reporting, call validations, surprise visits, and monitoring via the Skills Development Management System (SDMS). These approaches will be improved by incorporating cutting-edge technology.
