Ministry of Civil Aviation focuses on skill development

As per the report submitted by IMaCS, there will be a requirement of about one million personnel directly in the civil aviation sector by 2035. The main objective of conducting the study was to thoroughly review and assess the skill needs in different segments/sub-segments of the sector at present and in future. Accordingly, the study was conducted to gauge competence skills across various segments of the sector, gaps in it, a roadmap for skill development in the sector etc.
A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Ministry of Civil Aviation and Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) recently to establish a framework of collaboration on skill development, including the setting up of Skill Development Centres, Trade Facilitation Centres and Centres of Excellence.
A Steering Committee headed by Secretary, Civil Aviation has been set up for better coordination and implementation of skill development in the sector. Indian Aviation Academy (IAA) has also been appointed as the nodal institute for assisting the Steering Committee.
A tripartite MoU was signed by Airports Authority of India (AAI) with National Skill Development Fund (NSDF) and National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) for ‘Setting up of Skill Development Centre and Skilling Youth’.
