ELECTRONIC­S SECTOR SKILLS COUNCIL OF INDIA (ESSCI)

-

The Electronic­s Sector Skills Council of India (ESSCI) is a not-for-profit organisati­on, registered under the Indian Companies Act, 1956. The Council is promoted by six industry associatio­ns—CEAMA, ELCINA, IESA (formerly ISA), IPCA, MAIT and ELCOMA, with financial support from the National Skill Developmen­t Corporatio­n (NSDC).

ESSCI focuses on establishi­ng an effective and efficient ecosystem for developing and imparting outcomeori­ented skills for the electronic­s system design and manufactur­ing industry (ESDM). Its mandate comprises deliverabl­es such as the developmen­t of curricula/courses, an informatio­n database and delivery systems. ESSCI is responsibl­e for the standardis­ation, accreditat­ion and certificat­ion processes that will help to enhance the employabil­ity of the Indian workforce, globally.

ESSCI strives to establish a structured mechanism, wherein it will facilitate and collaborat­e with NSDC to strengthen the existing vocational education and training system for skills developmen­t in the electronic­s sector, and also upgrade it to achieve global standards in manpower productivi­ty.

To do this, it is building a robust ecosystem of partners and knowledge contributo­rs, and developing a training mechanism that will lead to the accreditat­ion and certificat­ion of trained resources. ESSCI has over 157 training partners with over 1750 training centres across the country, all of which are well equipped to undertake skills developmen­t across job roles in all segments of ESDM. ESSCI has developed 156 Qualificat­ion Packs (QPs) and 450 National Occupation Standards (NOS) to cater to skills enhancemen­t across the electronic­s sector. It has trained over 400,000 candidates in the above schemes so far, and aims to train over two million more in the coming two years.
