Under the MoU, the PITB will prepare the curriculum and also design a training programme of freelancing in Pakistan. It will also provide master trainers for the said training.

The NAVTTC will run the freelancing courses in its partner institutes all across the country. Only the institutes fulfilling the minimum eligibility criteria of the NAVTTC will be selected as partners in the said programme. It will also provide stipend to the persons seeking training in freelancing.

Both organisations will train a total of 13,000 persons in the field of freelancing each year. A total of 5,000 graduate trainees and 8,000 undergraduate trainees will be produced annually under the NAVTTC's assisted programme.

Awareness will be created amongst the educated people to join such training courses so that maximum benefit may be achieved, and Pakistan is able to earn sizable foreign exchange through this source.
