This was said by Executive Director of the NAVTTC Zulfiqar Ahmad Cheema while addressing the video conference which was attended by the director generals and all officers of provincial offices here on Tuesday.

He expressed satisfaction that the NAVTTC's skilled youths were getting more jobs in and out of the country. He said the final assessment of the trainees under Prime Minister’s Youth Skill Development Programme will be conducted from April 19, which will include 90 per cent of the practical exercises.

"Of the three assessors, two will be from industry. Furthermore, from April 23 onwards, skill competitions will be held across the country. Cash prizes and certificates will be distributed in the winners," he said.

The NAVTTC chief said it is our top priority to provide high-quality training in the best institutes across the country. He said improvements will be made so that the informally skilled workers are provided with certificates under the Recognition of Prior Learning System.

He said that linkages with the industries have been enhanced to improve the employment opportunities for the youth. "The NAVTTC’s trainees will be provided on-the-job training from April 1 in the industries which will not only enhance their practical skills but also increase chances of employability," he said.

He instructed the officers to work with sincerity and dedication for the training of young boys and girls and their placement in the job market. The meeting reviewed the current situation of training and institutes under the Prime Minister’s Youth Skill Development Programme and various reforms were considered to improve their overall quality. The training of fifty thousand youth will start in May under PMYSDP Phase IV (Batch-02).
