Under this collaboration UNDP in Uttarakhand will also be supporting the Department of Skill Development and Employment in mobilisation of high quality human resource within and implementation of capacity building training plan of existing and newly recruited professionals will lead to directly in achievement of the World Bank funded Uttarakhand Workforce Development Project (UKWDP) objectives of improving the quality and relevance of training at priority Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) and of increasing the number of labor-market-relevant workers through short-term training in Uttarakhand.
The UKWDP will contribute to these objectives by supporting Uttarakhand to strengthen the delivery of skills and training programs to produce higher-quality workers with relevant market skills and increasing access.
