GJSCI opens training centre in Dharampur, Gujarat
The Gem and Jewellery Skill Council of India has inaugurated a Skill Training Centre for Rural and Tribal Youth in collaboration with the Shrimad Rajchandra Skill Development Centre. The centre is located in Dharampur in the Valsad district of Gujarat, the Gem and Jewellery Export Promotion Council announced on its website.
The GJSCI’s newly opened centre will run a three-month long course to train rural students to use computer-aided design software to design and render jewellery. The GJSCI has set up a dedicated and well-equipped computer lab in the centre to enable the students to have a hands-on training experience.
The GJSCI held an inauguration ceremony for the computer lab in the Dharampur centre which welcomed guests including Shrimad Rajachandra Mission president Abhay Jasani, GJSCI chairman Sanjay Kothari, the Indian Institute of Gems and Jewellery’s Mumbai chairman Vasant Mehta, GJSCI director Shishir Nevatia, and GJSCI CEO Rajeev Garg among others. "The rural institute is designed to improve the employability of hundreds of rural youth in the area by offering them short-term, market-linked vocational training at no cost", announced the GJSCI at the centre’s opening last week.
Mumbai-based jewellery manufacturing equipment supplier Cascade Star announced that it has agreed to donate CAD software Matrix Gold to be used for the training. The centre will also teach students employability skills to help them secure job placements after completing their course.
