The programme started with 3 Centres in 2012 and is currently running 65 Centres at 10 locations across India. These include SMART Centres, SMART+ Centres (training for people with disabilities), SMART-T Centres (training in technical trades) and the SMART Academy. The SMART Academy is the next level of the programme, which will be a state-of-the-art centre imparting high-quality vocational skills training, with a blend of classroom, practical and on-the-job training. The Academy will closely engage with the industry stalwarts for constant curriculum up-gradation and placement. It will train more than 1000 youth and make them employable in higher paying jobs in the organised sector. The Foundation has also undertaken a research project in vocational education and training (RiVET) along with the National Skill Development Authority (NSDA), to understand the overall scope of skill development in India.
