Work Integrated Programmes

Dual System of Training is a vocational education model that combines theoretical classroom instruction with practical on-the-job training. This approach allows students to gain both theoretical knowledge and practical skills in a real work environment, which can better prepare them for their future careers. DST scheme is part of ITI education system where ITI students attend a maximum of 12 months of industrial training through an agreement between the ITI and the industry. Funfirst facilitates the MoU signing process and takes care of the industrial training of the students. In 2023, there are close to 500 students undergoing industrial training from 16 Govt. ITIs in 5 states. 

National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme (NAPS) was launched in 2016 with an objective to improve the number of apprentices in industries. Monetary incentives are provided to encourage small and medium scale industries to engage apprentices. The students seeking apprenticeship under NAPS scheme shall have minimum qualification of 8th pass. The National Apprenticeship Training Scheme (NATS) is a programme equipping technically qualified (Diploma & Engineering graduates) youth with practical knowledge and skills required in their field of work. The Apprentices are imparted training by the organizations at their place of work. Under NATS scheme 50% of the stipend amount paid to the students is reimbursable to the employer from Government of India. Funfirst is a registered Third Party Aggregator (TPA) with the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) to facilitate sourcing and management of apprentices for industries. 

Diploma in Vocation (D.Voc) courses are offered by Polytechnic colleges which consists a mix of theoretical training at the college and practical on-job-training (OJT) at respective industries. In 2021, Funfirst has partnered with Kerala government’s ASAP (Additional Skill Acquisition Programme) to align and certify the industrial training of students of 3 Govt. Polytechnic Colleges in Kerala.
