SGCCI to set up Vidhyadeep Skill Acquisition Centre in Surat

Surat, July 15 (KNN) The Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SGCCI) and Vidhyadeep University have partnered to establish the SGCCI Vidhyadeep Skill Acquisition Centre.

This move aligns with the vision of Prime Minister's "Skill India" campaign.


This initiative is a result of the collaborative efforts of BS Agrawal, Past President of SGCCI, Ketan Panchal Chief Advisor and Zonal Officer of the Placement Cell Government of Gujarat, and Rakeshkumar, State Head of NSDC.

The centre is designed to be a one-stop solution for skill development in South Gujarat, with the ambitious aim of transforming Surat into the largest Skill City following its recognition as the Cleanest City, Smart City, and Diamond City.

"Discover Yourself through Upskilling & Reskilling" is the centre's motto, reflecting its commitment to creating a competent, industry-ready workforce. 

The centre will focus on identifying industrial skill requirements, bridging the gap between industrial needs and workforce skills, and generating diverse job opportunities.

Key features of the Skill Acquisition Centre include industry-oriented university courses, support for start-ups, industry-academia collaboration, upskilling of the existing workforce, fostering a growth mindset in students, and promoting research and innovation.

"Just as an axe requires periodic sharpening to serve its purpose, we as humans require constant learning of skills to ensure we are part of the growing and constantly evolving job markets," said Jayanti Bhai, President of Vidhyadeep University.

Mayank Bhatnagar, National Head of State Engagement NSDC, emphasized the importance of Multiskilling for every Indian. Meanwhile, Himanshu Bodawala, President of SGCCI, and Ramesh Vaghasia, member of the working committee, expressed confidence in the initiative's ability to address the industry's need for skilled human capital.  (KNN Bureau)
