IANS  |  New Delhi 

Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani on Thursday launched the national web portal for promotion of a national apprenticeship scheme.

The scheme, which provides opportunities for practical training, is for graduates, diploma holders and 10+2 pass vocational certificate holders.

"The portal will now ensure seamless connectivity with all stakeholders, including students, establishments and technical institutions across the country for transparent administration through e-governance," Irani said in a statement.

The portal, through the mechanism of internal complaints committee, would also offer security for women at workplace and ensure grievance redressal for the apprentice, she said.

It will also be a multilingual platform which currently engages with the user in Marathi, Bengali, Tamil and Hindi.

Irani also asked the All India Council for Technical and National Skill Development Corporation to come together to expand the outreach and exposure especially for class 11 and 12 students.

A logo and a slogan "Sashakt Yuva, Samarth Bharat" was also released for the portal.

The ministry implements the apprenticeship training scheme for one year through board of apprenticeship training and board of practical training at Mumbai, Chennai, Kanpur and Kolkata.
