National Apprenticeship Training Scheme is one of the flagship programmes of Government of India for imparting skill training to Indian youth. This is a one-year programme equipping technically qualified youth with practical knowledge and skills required in their field of work.

Trained managers with well-developed training modules ensure that apprentices learn the job quickly and competently. The apprentices are paid a stipend amount during the period of apprenticeship.

At the end of the training period the apprentices are issued a Certificate of Proficiency by the Government of India which can be registered at all employment exchanges across India as valid employment experience.

The apprentices are placed for training at central, state and private organizations which have excellent training facilities. The ministry of skill development has estimated a cost of Rs 3,000 crore for reimbursement of honorarium amount for the period from 2020-21 to 2025-26.

During the period of apprenticeship, the apprentices are paid a stipend amount, 50% of which is reimbursable to the employer from the Government of India.
