EMPLOYABILITY OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE COMPLETED TRAINING AND APPRENTICESHIP WITH ITIs IN MAHARASHTRA 2014-2017
This study was undertaken to gauge the employability of those who have completed their skill training at private industrial training institutes (ITIs) across Maharashtra, followed by apprenticeship in industry. The graduation period taken was 2014-2017. Graduates and principals of ITIs were interviewed, as well as industrialists who employ ITI graduates.
Interview guides were devised for each group of stakeholders. These were pretested before sending them out for data submission.
Separate interview guides were also prepared for the focus group discussions and case studies of industrialists.
The COVID-19 pandemic imposed multiple constraints on data collection. Hence the number of stakeholders and the time frame of the study was severely impacted. The table below provides a glimpse of the efforts made by the ICOR research team in data collection and related matters.
