                   TITLE OF THE PROJECT
      “Demand Driven employability Training to BPL youth in
          identified Backward District of Madhya Pradesh”


Swarnjayanti Gram Swarojgar Yojna (SGSY) is an excellent initiative of the
Govt. of India to bring poor families (BPL) through various income generation
avenues. As a part of strategy, Ministry of Rural Development has brought out a
special project under SGSY for skill development of Rural youth to make them
employable and provide a better family income.

India has a very high number of literates, school drop outs and unemployed
youth. India also has one of the highest numbers of unskilled or inappropriately
skilled manpower idling for want of opportunities. Regular or formal education is
essential for overall growth and development of the personality but unfortunately
beyond schooling, if the right direction is not given, the youth end up as ordinary
graduate or drop out even before completing school. Lack of adequate and
appropriate opportunities after schooling is one of the biggest de-motivator
resulting in high rates of dropout.

Regular education does not lead to employment or built the potential for
employability. Employability is marginally ensured for higher levels of education
and also to individuals who are exposed to profession courses. The poor and
marginally sections of the society are unable to access the same due to
economic reasons. More over, such opportunities in rural areas are limited.

The estranged rural unemployed youth include;
             Those who are deprived of higher education
             Those who are hailing from vulnerable economic background
             Those who feel that their pursuits of education will not lead to
              assured livelihood with sustainable income.
Education dovetailed with specialized skills has the potential for
employability or self employment. New initiatives have yielded positive results
ensuring sustainable employment for the skilled youth.


         There has been proliferation of private and government run technical
institutions, which specialized, in vocational training. However, in spite of the
efforts, the number of unemployed youth is constantly increasing. Many of the
youth trained in such vocational institutions are also unemployed or end up with
under employment. The main problems of these vocational educational
institutions include-

        Outdated courses lacking market orientation
        Long duration of courses and unaffordable fee structure.
        No focus on life skills like spoken English and communication skills.
        Dropout youth with low education not eligible.
        Poor performance in term of placements.
        Networking with potential employers totally missing.
        Focus on theory and not on practical skills

Hence there is an urgent need for a unique and innovating market driven
approach for identifying and imparting training in specific areas, which have
scopes for gainful employment. Employability is assured after the training as it is
a demand driven training and in consultation potential employer. Going by the
huge potential, the programme could spread in all regions of the state so as to
ensure replicability.

The present initiative is to provide gainful and sustainable employment of rural
youth through intensive training in specified market driven skills. The training of
capability building modules do not limit themselves to skill training but will also
address issues like personality development, on the job training for hands on

experience etc. Each training module will be tailor made and attuned to the
market demand.

The potential employer will be motivated to give trainees the opportunity for
hands on experience. The current need is to look for avenues and options, which
have both backward and forward linkages. Besides imparting skills there is
strong need for personality development, hand holding for confidence building
and facilitating to ensure proper placement and employment.

The unemployment problem of rural youth is to be tackled through skill
development and capacity building programmes, so as to enable them to get
gainful employment or in certain cases start their own enterprise.         The skill
development training to rural youth is of immense value and would bring out a
definite change in socio-economic scenario of rural areas. It will create congenial
social atmosphere for improved social relationship and uplift the economy of the
area. Youth can live an honorable living and set example to other families to
follow the suite.

The younger generation with full of energy, talent, creativity can be provided with
a constructive approach to earn decent livelihood; so that the vulnerability of their
distraction to destructive/ antisocial activity can be averted.

It has been realized that there is a need for market driven approach for
identifying and giving training in such areas which has scope for gainful
employment. It is extremely important to impart identifiable marketable skills

Our program will be designed in consultation with potential employers, taking into
account their specific needs. The program will also address practical training,
personality development and enhance communication skills, mannerism, etc.



        Indian economy is now booming and has large potential for growth in
         infrastructure and service providers sector.
        Tremendous growth potential exists in service industry and infrastructure
         sector and many such projects are coming up in the state.
        Large number of youth are looking for employment opportunities
        Increasing demand for skilled and trained manpower, tailored to specific
        Experienced core team of professional who have successfully designed
         and developed market oriented courses.
        Having networking all over the state.
        Many companies required specifically trained personnel so that they can
         be put on the job directly.
        CRISP has proven strengths in this area and have conducted various
         training programme through out the country.
        This successful model will spread to other parts of MP and to other states
         to give opportunity especially to BPL families.

        Low acceptance for job placement, if away from their home town or village
        Mismatch of aspirations, aptitude, skills and market requirement of rural
        Employable rural youth lack marketable skills and have apprehension of
         advantages from training, etc.
        Limited confidence, communication skill and entrepreneurship skills
        Unforeseen individual exigencies and drop out of the youth from the
        Absorption of youth in all together new working environment and culture of

         India has been witness to tremendous growth in the industrial
         infrastructure and service sector:
        Identified neighbor states have enormous scope for employability training
        Educated or school dropout youths in the state with negligible skills &
         potential group for employability training
        Potential to knit the rural youth into groups
        Potential scope exists for establishing exclusive placement centers for
         industrial, infrastructure and service industry.
        Trained and empanelled youth with the placement center can access need
         based jobs as service providers at a premium.
        Many companies wants large number of specially trained persons.

5. BACKGROUND OF CRISP (Project Implementing Agency)


      Initiatives of the Government of India to promote the weaker segment of
      the society through the Special Central Assistance Schemes and State
      Govt. schemes have been in place from quite sometime. These schemes
      focus on developing the capacity and capability of the target population to
      earn a decent livelihood and thus bringing about a change in their socio-
      economic status.

      In this endeavor, the Government of India and the various Departments of
      the Govt. of Madhya Pradesh have entrusted the Centre for Research and
      Industrial Staff Performance (CRISP), Bhopal to act as the Implementing
      Agency as CRISP has demonstrated its capabilities, supported by its
      state-of-the-art infrastructure and a strong network base to impart
      employment oriented training under various schemes. CRISP has to this
      end, extended its efforts and initiatives for the benefit of the weaker
      section community, by implementing skill development professional
      programmes and providing mainly for wage-employment, under the said


      One of the main objectives of CRISP is to provide skill development
      training to women and persons of the weaker sections of the society so as
      to improve their employability in order to earn a decent livelihood.

      Major programmes that highlight CRISP’s contribution to meet the
      above objective and commitments through the various schemes of
      the Govt for the target population (i.e) the neglected, deprived and
      weaker section of the society are as follows:

          Vocational Training for Employment Generation – a UNDP sponsored
           programme – VoTEG.
          Multiskilling training for sustainable jobs to rural youth - “Barefoot
           engineer program”
          Data Entry Operator Programme for socially disadvantaged group
           (scheduled caste/ schedules tribes).
          Tribal Youth Training and Employment Cell in Hi-tech (TYTECH)
          Training on Multimedia for Physically Handicapped disadvantaged group
          Training and certification in vocational skills.
          Training for the grass-root target group in crafts and handloom clusters
          Training to the unemployed youth belonging to the Schedule Caste
           Category    in   areas    of   Industrial   Automation,   Modern   Office
           Management, Fashion Designing, Interior Designing & Computer
           Aided Designing.

       CRISP is imparting training to more than 1500 youths of weaker sections
       annually under these programs. The success of these programs is
       measured by getting the trainees into self or wage employment; among
       which the focus lies more on wage employment, which presently averages
       to 75%.

iii.       CRISP – an organisation with sound position :

       CRISP is an organisation with appreciable amount of resources at
       its command: Besides the projects and programmes undertaken by
       CRISP with financial assistance from outside (outside CRISP), it has
       been running a number of prestigious projects with its own finances. Any
       organisation needing dependable, efficient and quality services shall
       have in CRISP a partner. It is to reiterate that, besides financial
       capability, CRISP has access to resource persons, experts and
       specialists having varied experience of working on major international

6. Programmes run by CRISP for weaker sections

i.   Data Entry Operator

     The programme is targeted to youths of scheduled caste who have not
     pursued education after 10th standard and have remained unemployed.
     The six-month training program is being delivered successfully since
     2000-01 with an approx inclusion of 35 – 40 % female candidates in each
     programme. The trainees are selected from poor families in villages with
     the help of the district administration. They are provided inputs on
     computer fundamentals, typing and MS office, training also include
     modules on English and personality development. The program
     accomplishments are excellent with around 85% placement.

     (Computer based employment-oriented course)
     This programme sponsored by the Schedule Caste & Tribal Welfare
     Department, Government of Madhya Pradesh;
     100% success rate achieved and all trainees got placement. Jobs were
     mostly offered by the companies where the trainees undergo one month
     on- job-training (OJT). Though the success rate for employment is 100%
     some of the trainees also opted for higher education. A participation of
     around 40% girl trainees has been seen in the programme.
     Much emphasis is given on personality development and on speaking in

iii    INDUS CHILD LABOUR PROJECT – An International Programme on
       Elimination of Child Labour

       The INDUS Child Labour Project of the International Labour
       Organisation (ILO) is an action-oriented programme and includes
       inter-related interventions. The project was envisaged to be
       implemented in the districts to prevent and eliminate child labour in
       the identified hazardous sectors and provide            vocational training
       interventions to the adolescents, in the age group of 14 – 17. CRISP
       has implemented the project in the District of Jabalpur in the State of
       Madhya Pradesh.
The success of the project goes like this – out of 1000 trainees, 743 were placed
on completion of the project, while the rest started their own enterprises.

iv    Data    Entry-cum-Multimedia           Programme         for    Physically
       (Computer based employment-oriented course)

       Pradesh, this particular programme is being conducted for a specific
       segment of the society, who are Physically Challenged and exclusively
       belonging to the Scheduled Tribes. The trainees are trained in Data entry
       operations and in the area of multimedia; a novel feature of this
       programme is that a lot of emphasis is given on personality development
       and on spoken English, with efforts to develop communication skills too.

       This training allows the trainee to have a flexibility in choosing from two
       options for getting an employment.

        (Distt. Khandwa (M.P.); training was provided to the youth in the service
        sectors - Security Services & Ready-made Garment. These training were
        successfully carried out with 100% offers for placement of trainees.

  vi.    Vocational Training for Employment Generation (VoTEG)

        The UNDP, through the Department of Science and Technology
        (Government of India) initiated a programme through CRISP for training
        rural youth in skill sets that were in demand in their villages / towns; the
        aim was to enable the youth to earn a decent livelihood in the village itself,
        the impact of the programme was such that migration to cities was seen to
        be curbed in a big way.

        The training areas were identified from a survey conducted in rural areas
        of Madhya Pradesh mainly in house wiring & Tractor repair. The training
        helped the trainees to get jobs in local shops, while some laid down their
        own shops.

vii     Barefoot Engineers (Gramin Engineers)

        With the initiative of the Government of Madhya Pradesh the programme
        was launched for villagers and the scheme was named as “Barefoot
        Engineers”. The target of this programme is to place one trained engineer
        at each of the 52,000 villages of Madhya Pradesh in 10 years. . CRISP is
        now supporting the programme through training the trainers of the
        institutions. Started in 2003 at CRISP, around 3000 rural youths are
        being trained annually as Barefoot Engineers through Government

viii.   Micro enterprise promotion
        In order to promote technology-based entrepreneurship, the Small
        Industries Development Board of India (SIDBI) and the Department of
        Industries    in   Madhya   Pradesh   regularly sponsor micro-enterprise
        promotion training programmes for unemployed youth. Starting from 1999,
        CRISP has conducted more than 25 programmes in the states of Madhya
        Pradesh, Gujarat and Goa.

ix      Programmes         in   Design   Development    in   Crafts   (Craft   based
        employment-oriented programmes for grass-roots)
        CRISP has established a State Initiated Design Centre in Handicrafts
        under which various Craft based Design Development training cum
        workshops have been organized to benefit the grass-root level
        beneficiaries in technical skill up gradation for developing market-driven
        products; the programmes have been sponsored by the Ministry of
        Textiles Development Commissioner (Handicrafts), Govt. of India, in which
        about 993 beneficiaries (50% females) have benefited by way of skill

Especial workshops and seminars for artisans and weavers are being regularly
organized by the CRISP in association with Panchayat & Rural Development
Department & Ministry Of Textiles.

x.      Training and certification in Vocational skills

Sponsored by the Department of Technical education and Training, Government
of Madhya Pradesh, the aim of this programme was to train unskilled and semi
skilled people in identified trades where no formal training is available.

The, identified 17 trades in the non-formal area were namely, plumbing,
masonry, 2-wheeler repair, house wiring etc; people usually inherit or learn these
skills from others while working on the job. The idea was to offer structured
training in these trades in modules of 3 to 6 months and certify the competency
of the trainee so that the trainee could take up jobs / opt for self employment. The
target groups were unemployed youth, school dropouts and semi-skilled workers.


Designing of training programmes

1. Demand-led Training; skills taught as determined by existing or recognizable
     potential opportunities in the market (i.e.) Identification of employment
     opportunities prior to conducting training was an important step followed in
     training programmes.

2. Skills to be imparted, pre-focused at wage employment, self-employment,
     depending on the training programme objectives, because each requires a
     different approach.

3. Rural skills training for grass root level target group are carried on-site.

4. For those already working, training was focused on skill enhancement (i.e.)
     upgradation of existing skills, so that they could increase their income.

5. A well developed networking and association with potential employers as
     Industries & Enterprises / Associations, etc. who pose their demand for
     manpower requirement in their specific domain of work.

6. Association with support institutions who provide their infrastructure &
     expertise for training where CRISP does not have its reach.

Organization and delivery of training –Approach
1.    Training programmes are given attention to characteristics of the target
      group, time & work constraints of the trainees and adapt a client friendly
      delivery in terms of course duration, location (close proximity to the
      trainees) and a flexi-timing schedule.

2.    Awareness raising is one of the primary activities in programmes specifically
      designed for the grass-root for which aggressive effort are made to
      introduce the benefits and importance of the schemes and programmes to
      the target group.

3.    Selection of trainees is done by taking into consideration the trainee’s
      interest for acquiring a particular skill or multi-skilling and the desired future

          use of the skills; consequences of dropping out of the course in these
          cases is almost nil.

     4.   The training content covers just 10 to 25 per cent of the time to theory; focus
          is on the most effective method of imparting training - the practical hands-on
          approach. Other methods adopted are, demonstrations, repetition and trial
          and error, and on-job-training (OJT) for live-environment experience in
          institutions, enterprises and with private agencies.

     5.   Training curricula is practical, ideally in local languages and, to the extent
          possible, suitable for illiterate trainees wherever the literacy level of trainee
          mattered (ie), included more visual presentations / pictures.

     6.   To enhance the relevance of skills training programmes, trainees are
          provided additional inputs on life skills, spoken English & Communication

C.    Gender aspects:

     1.   Conscious effort to include girls and young women in training programmes,
          to at least 30%.

     2.   Support facilities and measures including hostel, transport facilities to
          encourage participation of this gender, in the training.

     3.   The pool of women trainers is being increased.

     4.   Public and private employers are being encouraged to employ increased
          number of female apprentices.

D. Post-Training Assistance:

      1. Training programmes also includes training counseling that seek to match
          the interests of the trainees with the available opportunities.

      2. Training programmes that are aimed for wage employment, include career
          counseling and assistance for job placement by the CRISP through
          Institutional networking & NGOs.

      3. A feedback system from the employers of those trainees who have opted
          for wage-employment mode of earning, while we have a well designed

       monitoring system developed to track the progress of the trainee who have
       opted for self-employment mode of earning;


        The success of the schemes and programmes has established the fact that
        sustainable wage employment / jobs and self-employment can be created by
        providing skill-based training.

        With this background CRISP plans to venture into the developmental Special
        SGSY scheme of the Ministry of Rural Development (GOI) focused on
        employment in job oriented trades by way of Training i.e. technical skill
        development in identified area where the demand for wage employment is
        tremendously high.

  i. Experience of working with Government (s), Industries, Organisations
  and the Society:

     CRISP is an ISO 9001: 2000 autonomous organization established under
     the Department of Technical Education and Training, Government of
     Madhya Pradesh in association with German Technical Co-operation
     (GTZ) to provide training, consultancy and research services to
     Government sector, weaker sections of the society, developmental
     institutions,     unemployed      youth,   industries   &   non-governmental

ii. Livelihood programme/process in the region BY CRISP

   CRISP has initiated and participated in planning, implementation and
   conducting various livelihood programmes in the state of Madhya
   Pradesh. The Department of Science & Technology, Government of India
   entrusted the responsibility of implementing a UNDP supported Vocational
   Training Programme of employment generation for the rural youth in the
   State of Madhya Pradesh. A survey was conducted to identify the training
   needs of the youth in rural & semi-urban areas with a view to develop
   multi-skilled persons. In the trades identified by the survey, a great
   number of youth have been trained. Most of them are self-employed and
   are earning their livelihood as a result of the professional inputs provided
   by CRISP over a period of time.

   Based on the experience gained, a number of other livelihood projects
   sponsored by the Government of Madhya Pradesh were undertaken by
   CRISP. Gramin Engineer (Village Engineer) Scheme; Employment
   Oriented Vocational Training, Entrepreneurship Development Programme;
   Employment Oriented Computer Training for Physically challenged youth
   and weaker sections of the society, Employment Oriented Design
   development training in Fashion designing, Handicrafts & Handloom, are
   few of such initiatives supported by CRISP.

   Other programmes aiming at providing skills in such emerging areas as
   Information Technology, Office Management, Advance Technology areas
   (for Job seekers) are also run on a regular basis. These areas were
   identified as having potential for wage & self-employment. On successful
   completion of these programmes, the trainees are awarded certificate of
   competence, which help them in future.

   The process of all the programmes included need identification, curriculum
   design, design of modular courses, preparation of suitable training
   material, training of trainers and a system of assessment and evaluation.

       We undertake research with a view to make an assessment of our efforts.
       As a part of our strategy, sample of the successful trainees are contacted.

       Most of them expressed happiness & satisfaction over the success of the

       programmes. We ensure that they are properly employed and have better

       employment opportunities. CRISP has presently, on hand, tracer studies
       of 4 ongoing schemes initiated by the Department of Training,
       Government of

       Madhya Pradesh.

Adjustment in the location of Training centre can be done if so advised, by DRDA
and other authorities.


We have interacted with large number of companies, apprising them of the skill
development programme being planned and shall be tailored to their specific
requirement. We have further explained them the advantages , they would have
in getting trained staff and also keeping in view cooperate social responsibility,
the response has been overwhelming. There is general agreement in absorbing
these trainees and formal communication from the industries/business houses
can be had, once project has taken some shape. It is quite clear that placement
up to 75 - 80% would be practical.

On this basis, we planned to take up following trades for this project. However,
not more than 3 – 4 trades would be taken up in a particular centre.

             (1)   Readymade Garment Manufacturing
             (2)   Sales and Marketing
             (3)   Security Services
             (4)   P.C. Hardware Repair & Maintenance
             (5)   Basic Electrician
             (6)   Data Entry Operator
             (7)   Machine Mechanic
             (8)   Automation Engineering
             (9)   Handicrafts


          One of the unique aspects of the proposed project is its training design.
The training design would ensure the following:

         Training modules would be tailor made to suit the needs and demands as
          per the opportunity available in the local market and rural context. This
          would be arrived at through a detailed Employability Potential Assessment

       (EPA) of the target area. EPA would include collection of information from
       all stakeholders and sources like industries, business houses, service
       industries, government agencies, industry associations, etc.

      Program will focus equally on technical skills and personality development
       of candidates. Besides quality technical skills (theory, practice and on-job),
       training modules would include a significant amount of inputs on
       personality development like spoken English, communication skills,
       mannerisms etc. required to meet the market demands.
      Quality inputs would be imparted to candidates on life skills like savings
       and financial management, awareness and best practices on health and
       hygiene issues, HIV/ AIDS etc.
      Program would include a regular interface with local business industrial
       and     other   potential   employers   for   course   development,     training
       methodology, placement and building backward and forward linkages.
      On the job training and apprenticeship would be an integral part of all
       training courses. This would help candidates understand job requirements
       and environment better to enable them to make right choice in choosing
      All candidates would be provided with both pre and post placement
       support as well as hand-holding and linkages under the program.
      Flexibility and demand driven approach would ensure that the program is
       modified to suit local context ion the proposed area of intervention.

Pre Training phase

The pre training phase would consist of preparatory activities for launch of
training of candidates. It would include employability potential assessment and
identification of courses, identification of building and procurement of required
infrastructure, recruitment of trainer and their training, spreading awareness
about the program and mobilization of candidates etc. a brief description of
activities in this phase is as following:

      Employability Potential Assessment

       A team of professionals and local persons (NGOs staff, technical
       institutes) shall conduct a detailed market survey to access the potential
       trades for employment in the local area. It would involve collection of
       demographic and market potential related information of the target area.
       Secondary source as well as direct contact with the business
       establishments and industries in the area would be carried out to assess
       specific human recourse requirements. This assessment would form the

    basis of the finalizing the training courses and development of curriculum
    according to the market demand.

   Selection of courses / trades
    Based on Employability potential assessment, those trades will be
    identified for which there is demand of human resources in the local area.
    Accordingly courses to be taught will be finalized. Chosen courses would
    continues in subsequent batches till reasonable number of candidates as
    per potential assessment are trained. The course may be taken off
    temporarily for a few batches as per market demand and survey.

   Infrastructure
    For each of the centres necessary infrastructure would be procured before
    commencement of training. Besides, other required infrastructure like
    computers furniture, tools machinery, etc. would be procured, care will be
    taken to have sufficient infrastructure to the number of candidates.

   Interaction with matching Potential Employers

    Close interface would be maintained with potential employers and experts
    in the courses taught. The primary aim of this interface would be get to
    inputs on skill required, course content, methodology etc. The potential
    employers would help to understand the gaps in the skills required and
    existing pool of human resources. These identified gaps built-in in the
    course content will increase the existing employment potential and fetch
    higher income levels.

   Curriculum Development & Learning
    Curriculum for each of the identified course would be developed by
    experts. Each course curriculum would be modified parties local
    requirements. The curriculum would be balanced to proved due theoretical
    and practical inputs as well as exposure and on the job training to the

    candidates within the stipulated duration of training. The curriculum would
    be flexible to take care of the individual needs of the candidates. The
    curriculum would also be update and modified periodically to suit the
    changing market dynamics.

   Selection of Trainer
    Trainers of the identified trades for training would be selected from the
    local area as far as possible. Focus would be on selecting trainers who
    have more job exposure rather than academic knowledge. The trainers
    would be people will at least 2 years of industrial exposure pertaining to
    the respective courses. Proficiency in basis communication skills and
    familiarity with the local language would also be factors in selection of
    trainers. One of the important tasks of the trainer would be to network with
    industries and business establishments for placement of the candidates
    after the training.

   Training of trainers

    CRISP has a centre pool of experts who are dedicated to designing
    course content, curriculum, methodology etc. Before the selection trainers
    get involved in the actual training process of the candidates, a thorough
    training would be conducted to orient them for the program by the central
    pool. This training would ensure uniformity in meeting the high standard
    setup for imparting training. The trainers would also be made to undergo
    regular development     and fresher courses to regularly update their own
    skill sets.

   Mobilization of Candidates
    Events would be organized with an objective to spread awareness about
    the programme and motivate candidates to join the course. During the
    half-day event, all the potential youth for employability training would be
    assembled and the concepts of the program would be introduced to them.

   Aptitude Test
    CRISP has a scientific designed aptitude test for the candidates. This
    aptitude test has been designed by experts and helps assess the level of
    knowledge and interest of the potential candidates. All potential
    candidates interested in the program would be made to undergo this test
    and based on their performance and interest, they would be assigned to
    various courses being offered by the program.

   Individual Counseling

    After the aptitude test, each candidate and their parents would be
    counselled personally. This would help them to understand the program
    better and take care of any doubts that they may have regarding the
    program. Counseling would also help in increasing the confidence, interest
    and ownership of the parents in the choice of program and course for their

   Selection of Candidates

    the training courses. Candidates would be selected on the basis of
    individual counseling and their aptitude test. Care would be taken that
    large number of the beneficiary should be from below poverty line
    belonging mainly to rural or semi urban areas.

   Regular Training Phase
    Training phase forms the core part of the program in which activities
    pertaining to actual training of the candidates are undertaken. A brief
    description of the activities in this phase is as follows:

   Induction of Candidates

    All Selected candidates would be made to undergo a one-week induction
    module. This module will be conducted for all candidates together
    irrespective of their courses. Induction module consists of several informal
    games, group exercises, presentations and interactive sessions.

       This would include preparations for listing number of trained candidates
       required, organizing interviews / campus recruitments and interactions,
       negotiations for pay packets and other emoluments etc.

       Post-placement Follow-up for Additional Support to Candidates

        Contact with the candidates would be maintained even after the
        placements. Trainers would keep in touch with the successful placed
        candidates to get direct understanding of their experiences and job
        satisfaction. Efforts would be made to identify gap (if any) and special
        short trainings may be organized for candidates to fill those gaps and
        facilitate career growth. At the same time candidates willing to pursue
        higher studies would be counseled and helped in doing so.

An Alumni association would be formed for training centres. This forum would act
as an interface between current / potential candidates and successful pass out
candidates The alumni association would share their experiences to help further
evolve/ develop the curriculum as well as provide guidance to the current/
potential candidates. Besides the alumni association would also be a source for
appropriate placements. The alumni associations would also be affiliated both at
state and national levels to enable broader platform for sharing and learning.


Placement centers shall be established at each of the districts training centers
and function in close coordination with Headquarter. Placement centre at Bhopal
will keep online placement services and in line with training centre, develop a net
working with all the candidates as well as employers.         Centre will provide
strategy guidance beyond the scope of the project.

The placement has been planned with various industries/business houses in and
also various infrastructure company working in the states, having their
operational headquarter located else where. Placement in the neighboring states
would also be considered. In view of increasing requirement from overseas
market, placement of candidates in the overseas market in close coordination
with Ministry of Overseas Indian Affairs have also been worked out.

In order to sustained the employability potential linkage with local industries and
service sector will be developed and a close coordination will be maintain. Some
of the areas are:
      Industrial Units
      Business Houses
      Service Sector

Monitoring system

CRISP has developed a monitoring and review system for the same. However,
keeping in view of the, SGSY Project, the facilitating agencies and requirements
– a special system would be developed with following special features:

      Simple and user friendly monitoring system
      Web based system using off line tools with provision for updating and on
       line monitoring
      Facility for report generation in pre-design formats for different levels
      Online performance tracking of the trainees during the training and post

Different Levels

Monitoring and review would be carried out at the different level namely course
level, centre level, state level and central / project levels.

Centre Level Monitoring

The centre level monitoring would be done at centre level by respective faculty
and centre in-charge. Attendance, drop out, lesson plan, etc. would be monitored
and corrective action taken. The details will be keyed on day to day basis.
Placement percentage and pay package would be monitored batch-wise and
corrective measures taken.
Visit by experienced programme coordinator and core team of specialist would
be carried out to assure quality on regular basis. Project Director, CEO of DRDA,
representatives of potential employers would meet at least twice during the
batch, to take stock of the progress.

    State Level Monitoring

    The level monitoring would be done centre-wise. Monthly reports would be
    submitted. The Advisory Committee headed by the Secretary, Rural development
    would meet once in a quarter.


             The central level monitoring would be done state-wise. Quarterly reports
    would be submitted and annual reviews would be carried out.

The project cost is to be met (as per the norm of the Government of India) in
proportion of Central and State contribution.         Centre Government would
contribute 75% and the balance is to be arranged by the State Government / PIA.


After successful completion of the project in two years time, the training centre
can be restructured and handed over to local authorities/ local NGOs to maintain
the same momentum.        However strategic input can be provided by CRISP
including, monitoring and placement efforts.

To make the centres self sustaining, efforts shall be made to mobilize resources
more aggressively. Some of the steps would be on the following lines:
    1. Optimum utilization of centre - the infrastructure and facilities can be used
       to run higher skill, part time paid courses such as related to IT, advanced
       technology etc.,
    2. Placement Fee - From the prospective employers.
    3. Sponsorship - various companies, institution, individual to provide
    4. Overseas agencies, supporting such programmes for appropriate

   5. Government Scheme – various programmes, under the government of
      India to help poverty alleviation could be appropriately utilized for this
      training programme.


During the duration of the project, the entire execution would be done by CRISP
under the supervision of DRDAs. At the same time, efforts would be made for
capacity building of local NGOs so that project can be run without interruption
after the completion of the project. However strategic inputs would be provided
on long term basis by CRISP to ensure smooth take over of the project and its
successful running for the benefit of the community. Ultimately, project would be
handed over as per the directive of Centre / State Government.
