Why in News?

  • On June 27, 2022, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between West Singhbhum district administration and Tata Steel Foundation (TSF) for setting up a multi-skill centre.

Key Point

  • The agreement was signed by Ananya Mittal (IAS), (Deputy Commissioner, West Singhbhum) and Saurav Roy (Chief Executive Officer, Tata Steel Foundation).
  • The Centre will provide a multi-set of short-term training programmes aimed at capacity building and creating employment generation and entrepreneurship opportunities among the youth of the tribal communities mainly in the region.
  • Tata Steel Foundation will take over the routine maintenance of the centre as well as strengthening the initial infrastructure. In addition, the provision of training partners, trainers and equipment will also be supported by the Tata Steel Foundation.
  • Keeping in mind the 'Make in India' campaign of the central government, the centre will start with four courses in the supply chain, including warehouse packaging, auto service technician, assistant technician and mobile assembly. These are all three-six month courses.
  • Such programmes are being seen as an opportunity to reach out to the youth from the most vulnerable backgrounds with meaningful choices on skill development, which will ensure a sustainable livelihood through income generation.
  • Once ready, the center will ensure employment for a large number of youth, who will receive training and ultimately contribute to meeting the demand for skilled workers in industrial areas across the country.
