The Punjab government will soon fill 665 vacant posts of instructors in ITIs across the state besides providing them requisite infrastructure to enable them to develop professional skills among the students.
Disclosing this here on Monday, Technical Education and Industrial Training minister Anil Joshi said that presently there were 111 government and 294 private ITIs in the state which are providing professional training to over 64,000 youth every year.
Joshi said that he has issued instructions to complete recruitment process in the most transparent manner.
The minister said that besides filling the vacant posts, the state government has also chalked out a plan to install the machinery with latest technologies.
He said that technical institutes have been told to weed out obsolete trades and focus on only those trades that were required by the industry and could assure placement to youth getting training there.
He said that the state government had already taken path breaking initiatives in the field of technical education for which they have established four multi-skill centres in the state.
