The National Apprenticeship Training Scheme (NATS): Bridging the Skill Gap through On-the-Job Training

The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSME) has launched the National Apprenticeship Training Scheme for apprenticeship. With the help of this scheme, the government can bridge the skill gap. Through this policy, the government also helps provide industry training to students, apprentices, and more. Trained apprentices benefit both the industry and the nation.

This scheme helps increase employment opportunities and boost economic development.

  • NATS provides training for one year to the apprentices. Technically equipped students get trained to develop their practical knowledge and skills in this training process. These skills can be implemented in the field of work.
  • Under this process, apprentices get training from top-notch trainers. These trainers are from reputed firms, which may be central, state, or private, with excellent training facilities.

The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) has approved INR 3,054 crore for apprentices who take training under the NATS program from 2021–22 to 2025–26 (31/03/2026).

As the youth are moving towards employment, the NATS passed a new guideline that the NATS program will provide technical training in the technical field and to general streams. The training period for students in these fields could be between 6 months and 3 years.

Approximately 9 lakh apprentices will receive formal training from companies and commercial organisations. The science, engineering, humanities, or commerce-graduated apprentices will receive a NATS-approved amount per month.
