The ‘Skill Hub Initiative’ under the PMKVY 3.0 scheme focuses on the introduction of skill
training programmes in the education ecosystems. The Initiative would consider the policy level
synergy on integration of vocational education with general education as envisioned in the NEP
2020. St. Francis College for Women, Begumpet, Hyderabad, has been declared as a skill hub under
this initiative on February 1, 2022.
This nodal skill centre provides skill development and vocational training opportunities to
out-of-education (aimed for academic credit, mainstreaming back to education and or
apprenticeship and employment linkages).
The SHI under PMKVY 3.0 aims at creating shared infrastructure, aligned with the needs of
the local economy which addresses the vocational training needs of all target segments. The
candidates would achieve vocational skill certificate and academic credit through skilling/Re-
skilling/Up-skilling courses. The existing resources in education and skilling system are put to
optimum usage by utilization for skilling beyond normal working hours and during weekends. The
scheme is aimed at the following:
Biometric attendance shall be mandatory for the candidate.
Study material will be provided to candidates by the Skill Hub
Assessment and certification process shall be as per guidelines and norms issued by
MSDE/NCVET from time to time. Candidate assessments will be carried out through Aadhar enabled
