CM: enable youth to get jobs in their vicinity
In December 2022, BMC filed a memorandum of understanding with the education department to start skill development in all secondary schools of BMC. Chief Minister Eknath Shinde had directed BMC to implement skill training of the latest courses in demand, which would prove helpful to the youth to get jobs in their vicinity.
The civic body has proposed to commence skill development fields in electronics, artificial intelligence, fashion designing, coding, robotics, automobile, tourism and hospitality. It will also give training to 41,774 students of 249 BMC secondary schools. The civic body is proposed to establish a centralised skill development centre at Jagannath Shankar Sheth Secondary School for proper coordination of all skill development centres.
