Several local businesses and organizations have been invited to participate in this apprenticeship mela, which will give local youth with meaningful apprenticeship training options. Many companies from many industries will be represented at the event. 

Through a single platform, participating organizations may engage with potential apprentices and choose from their qualifications on the spot, all while increasing youth employment prospects.

Individuals can register for the mela and identify the nearest site by visiting https://www.apprenticeshipindia.gov.in/. Candidates in this apprenticeship mela must be Class 5 to Class 12 graduates, or have skill training certificates, or be ITI certificate holders, Diploma holders, or graduates. To the relevant venues, candidates must bring three copies of their résumé, three copies of all marksheets and certificates, picture ID (Aadhaar card/driving licence, etc.) and three passport-size photographs.

The apprenticeship mela site (http://dgt.gov.in/appmela2022/) also lists the locations.  Those who have already registered are asked to arrive at the location with all necessary documentation. Candidates will also receive National Council for Vocational Education and Training (NCVET)-recognized certifications through this Mela, increasing their employability following the training sessions.

In his comments on the Pradhan Mantri National Apprenticeship Mela, Atul Kumar Tiwari, Secretary, Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, stated that apprenticeship training must be prioritized to help create opportunities for work-based learning and exposure, as well as stipends being offered to the youth under its earn while you learn model, in order to drive the country's development and growth.

This will serve as a gateway to the industry for the apprentices, allowing them to obtain a globally acknowledged qualification as well as industry-specific training. National Pradhan Mantri Apprenticeship Mela is a fantastic opportunity for India's youth to connect with industry and take advantage of apprenticeship training opportunities.

Furthermore, the system is intended for those wishing to skill/upskill and advance in their careers, he continued. Every month on the second Monday, apprenticeship melas are hosted across the country. Selected persons are granted apprenticeship chances in these melas, during which they get a monthly stipend based on government criteria for learning new skills.

Apprenticeship is regarded as the most sustainable model of skill development, and it has received significant support under the Skill India Mission. The government aims to train 15 lakh kids per year through apprenticeship training, and PMNAM is an effort that will expand the participation of establishments and youth. It also educates young people about the different options available through the participating companies.
