The National Apprenticeship Training Scheme helps higher education institutions in placing their graduating students in leading organisations for Apprenticeship Training. Central, State and Private organisations engage candidates for Apprenticeship Training. Institutions interested in availing the benefits of this scheme should register themselves with the NATS Web Portal. Institutions traditionally located in districts / taluks, where industrial clusters are lacking, historically face difficulties in providing employment opportunities and industry experience to their students. This Scheme helps these institutions to get better access for opportunities to their students, currently available solely to urban candidates. Tie up with Boards of Apprenticeship Training/ Board of Practical Training, exposes institutions to the current market expectations from industries, which help them tailor their curriculum and training programmes to suit the present scenario.
