UET- Prime Minister Youth Skill Development Program


University of Engineering & Technology (UET) Lahore and National Vocational & Technical Training Commission (NAVTTC) regional office Lahore have joined hands together under Prime Minister’s Youth Skill Development Program to provide training courses to an educated unemployed youth of the country. Not only the program is free of charge, but attendees are also offered a monthly stipend of two thousand rupees as an incentive. This initiative is beneficial in motivating youth to join the training and equip themselves with trending in-market skills. This training program is beneficial for trainees, their families and is also helpful to overcome the acute shortage of skilled manpower in our country.

Keeping in view the current trend of unemployment and shortage of skilled people this is a much-needed step in the right direction. Every passing year students are passing out from universities and institutes having degrees and diplomas, but the problem is that they don’t have any technical skill in their hands which ultimately results in increased unemployment. The industries and businesses are in need of skilled manpower, which is not met by the output of the educational institutions and the result is a heap of educated but unskilled & unemployed youth.
