    Jamshedpur, Nov. 9: Driven by the Capability Development Department of Tata Steel, the company has established a public charitable trust named JN Tata Vocational Training Institute (JNTVTI)’.

    The objective of the trust is to provide skill-based vocational training in various sectors for employability and entrepreneurship opportunities to the eligible and interested youths.

    The trust intends to impart such vocational training under various skill development schemes run by the central and State governments. A MoU has also been signed between the Trust and the Government of India under the Flexi-MoU Scheme run by the latter.

    Suresh Dutt Tripathi, vice president, human resources management, Tata Steel said, every year government of India gives away Prime Minister’s trophy for the best integrated steel plant in the country. “Tata Steel has won this trophy several times and the cash award we get was used to launch this vocational course.

This is small contribution towards skill and nation building”, he added. Tripathi further informed that 43 students have been enrolled in the first batch.

    Paramedics are the key players in the health and medical sector and they are the professionals who help the doctors in specialized areas and facilities for better diagnosis, treatment and therapy.

    Tata group will skill 1 million people every year for the next 10 years which would help in nation building and skill development of the youths. Narendran advised the students to maintain quality and name of the institute held high.
