The Pantnagar Centre or ANTC centre is a partnership centre which is categorized as a Learn & Earn Training Centre. M/s. Ashok Leyland is the partner for this centre. This centre is a beautifully designed, having extremely advanced infrastructure to provide students with practical training. The Learn & Earn program offers students the opportunity to gain hands-on industry experience at Ashok Leyland plant under the supervision of NTTF faculty team while enabling them to earn a living.
NTTF in association with M/s. ASHOK LEYLAND and with the blessings of the Uttarakhand Govt has started this programme for the first time in our country at the Ashok Leyland factory at Pantnagar in the year 2010. This programme is called as ASHIRWAD and forms a part of the industrial policy of the state of Uttarakhand. This scheme is open only to the youth of Uttarakhand in line with the labour policy of the state which insists on 70 percent employment to locals.
The best thing about this model is the extent of practical exposure being given to the students all through the course.
