What is Technical Intern Training Program (TITP)?

TITP commenced in 1993 in Japan. The program goal is to contribute to developing countries by accepting its people and transferring skills through On-the-job Training (OJT) in Japan. It promotes international cooperation through the sharing of skills, techniques, and knowledge gained by technical interns with developing nations, leading to both human resource growth and economic advancement of the said regions. To boost the impetus on making India the skill capital of the world, the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), the Government of India, has initiated significant steps.

TITP Contract

One such notable action is the signing of the Memorandum of Cooperation (MoC) with the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Health, Labour, and Welfare of Japan. The MoC was signed on October 17, 2017, to significantly expand the bilateral cooperation between India and Japan in the skill development sector. Through this program, selected candidates from India undergo three-to-five years of internship in Japan, upon completing the internship, they are required to return to India and utilize the skills acquired by them in Japan. In January 2018, MSDE appointed National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to monitor the program.
