Takshila: Centre for Skill Development - Committed to Building a Skilled India
What does Takshila – Centre for Skill Development stand for?
Asia-Pacific Institute of Management, ranked among the top management institutes in Delhi NCR, has always been at the forefront of management education in India. The PGDM / MBA courses of the institute are widely appreciated by the academicians and industry veterans. So, venturing into skill and management development was only natural and completely aligned with the objectives of the top PGDM college that is Asia-Pacific. The venture was named as Takshila – The Centre for Excellence.
Takshila – The Centre for Excellence imparts the essential guidance and skills in two distinct areas:
- Skill Development of the youth of the country in association with the Central and State Governments
- Management development programs for the professionals working in lower, middle, and even higher management profiles
The Skill Development Arm:
From the past 22 years or so, Asia-Pacific Institute of Management has consistently performed as a world-class PGDM institute in Delhi NCR imparting industry oriented and AICTE approved courses in General Management, Marketing, International Business and Banking and Financial Services. For skill development, Takshila – The Centre for Excellence at Asia-Pacific Institute collaborates with governments and state agencies to reach out to the youth in the remotest of the areas in the country to help them get skilled and employed. Over years, the Takshila Team consisting of academicians and trainers have performed tremendously, and has successfully been a preferred ally for different governmental ministries and agencies in their initiatives to upskill the youth of the country. As of now, Takshila Team operates from more than 15 locations from across India, and has plans for major expansions in the years to come.
Some of the skill development projects successfully conducted by Takshila Team include the following:
Asia-Pacific Institute, the best MBA/PGDM institute in Delhi, through its skill development arm successfully participated in the Swarn Jayanti Shahri Rozgar Yojna. The Yojna is aimed at providing gainful employment to the urban unemployed and underemployed poor by encouraging self-employment ventures, or by the provision of wage employment.
In order to extend support to the tribal people and uplift the arduous circumstances in the five tribal districts of South Rajasthan, the Government of Rajasthan had invited several private enterprises under its Employee Linked Skill Training Program-Rajasthan Skill Livelihoods Development Corporation (RSLDC-ELSTP). The Takshila team duly participated and brought about a major impact through its well-structured approach to skill development.
Takshila has also worked on several skills development programs launched by the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC).
Deen Dayal Upadhayay Grameen Kaushal Yojana - Aajevika Skills with RSLDC, Aajeevika later renamed as DDU-GKYNational Rural Livelihoods Mission (NRLM) was launched by the Ministry of Rural Development (MoRD), Government of India, in June 2011. Takshila actively participated in the Mission and helped empower hundreds of youth in the selected locations.
The Seekho aur Kamao- Learn and Earn - was an initiative launched by Union Ministry of Minority Affairs for skill development of minorities covered under National Commission for Minorities Act 1992 (Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Buddhists and Parsis). Takshila, as usual, played a crucial role in implementing the initiative and thus, empowering the youth.
