Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd in collaboration with the Bangalore Chamber of Industry and Commerce and the Society of Indian Aerospace Technologies & Industries has formed a non-profit organisation for developing skills in the aerospace and aviation sector.

HAL Chairman, R K Tyagi, would be heading the governing council of the organisation to be registered soon, the company said in a release.

The council will comprise members from aviation majors, airport operators and academia. Air India, Jet Airways, Spice Jet, Indigo, GVK Group, Tata, ISRO and NAL have been invited to join in this endeavour, it added.

“The council is mandated to train approximately four lakh persons over the next ten years in 90 different trades identified for better employment opportunities, improving employability and bridging gaps in skills required in this sector,” Tyagi said.

HAL said the broader objective of this collaboration is to aggregate skill requirements of the industry, including sub-sector requirements, regional requirements and international trends and best practices, which can be introduced in the domestic skill development space.

The sector skill council would regulate the skill development activities in the industry sectors, including development of national occupational standards, qualifications, training curriculum and assessment criteria, it added.
