Apprentice Management

Apprentice Management

Apprenticeship training is one of the most efficient ways to develop skilled manpower for industry by using training facilities available in the establishments without putting any extra burden on exchequer to set up training infrastructure.

The Apprentices Act, 1961 was enacted with the objective of regulating the program of training of apprentices in the industry by utilizing the facilities available therein for imparting on-the-job train

Comprehensive amendments in the Act were brought in December 2014 to make it more attractive for both industry and youth.

Apprenticeship Training consists of :

  • Basic Training and
  • On-the-Job Training / Practical Training at workplace in the industry

The basic training is an essential component of apprenticeship training for those who have not undergone any institutional training/skill training before taking up on-the-job-training/practical training. It accounts for 20-25% of overall duration of Apprenticeship Training.

Apart from basic training, there is a component of on-the-job training which is performed in the establishments and undertaken by the establishment itself.


  • Apprenticeship training provides for an industry-led, practice-oriented, effective and efficient mode of formal training and as such strengthening of apprenticeship training needs to be given a high priority.
  • Online portal would be used for administering the implementation of the Apprenticeship Training.
  • Portal also facilitates for time bound approval of contract of apprenticeship, centralized database for compliance and monitoring, online verification of candidates profile, management of on-line examination for generation and issue of hall tickets.
  • Employer shall engage apprentices in a band of 2.5% to 10% of the total strength of the establishment
