• Goldi Solar and L&T Public Charitable Trust will unite for their common objective to provide the solar industry skilled workforce
• A special curriculum is devised to fulfil the current shortages in the solar industry, and Goldi Solar will provide weekend workshops and on-floor training to the students of Anil Naik Technical Training Center (ANTTC) on emerging technologies to bridge the skill gap and make them industry ready
Goldi Solar, India’s most quality-conscious solar brand, announced the collaboration with L&T Public Charitable Trust on the skill development program. Both entities signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to create a curriculum for a fast-paced skill development program specific to solar PV manufacturing. It will be the first-of-its-kind initiative to fill the industry’s gap in the trained and certified workforce. Together, the two organizations believe close cooperation would benefit the local community by enhancing their skills and employability.
On this occasion, Capt. Ishver Dholakiya, Founder & Managing Director of Goldi Solar, said, “Together, these organizations will be able to increase solar manufacturing skilled workforce and enhance employability to a great extent. The industry is growing at an incredible pace with a mission to fulfil the vision of Make In India. As a result, a skilled and industry-ready workforce will be nurtured, bringing the nation closer to its goal of being energy independent with renewable energy.”
Announcing the training program, Mr. K Ramakrishnan, Trustee of L&T Public Charitable Trust, said,” This collaboration will enable us toimpart skills to the young generation and prepare them for the upcoming opportunities in the solar sector. The program prepares students for a smooth transition from vocational to professional work culture by providing theoretical and practical industrial training and experience. We have designed a state-of-the-art facility and developed an industry-friendly curriculum. A dedicated faculty team will teach the intensive program, followed by on-the-floor training at Goldi Solar.”
Speaking on the initiative, Mr Bharat Bhut, Co-Founder & Director of Goldi Solar, said, “Skilled workers are hard to find, posing a significant hurdle to economic growth. It is intended that the unique curriculum will be developed and delivered at Anil Naik Technical Training Center (ANTTC), while the practical aspects will be conducted at Goldi Solar Navsari. As a result, companies working in the solar sector will receive a skilled and trained workforce ready to deliver from day one.”
Goldi Solar plans to create jobs at the grassroots level. The skill development program will help the company’s vision to recruit over 5000 people across various functions by FY 2025.
