New Delhi: The Indian government’s Preceptors Education Program (PEP) is an education-oriented, culturally sensitive, and culturally sensitive (CSC) program that promotes gender equity and equity in gender-based jobs and opportunities, and helps to create a climate conducive for girls to enter and continue in the workforce.
Its primary objective is to help Indian women to find employment and advance in the labour market.
The program aims at building a more equal society by providing women with skills and skills development that are not available in private sector.
The Precepts Program provides high-quality gender-sensitive skills development through a diverse set of skills training, including social work, accounting, English language training, computer science, psychology, and art.
This is in line with the government’s Vision 2030 goals of gender equity, which envisage a more inclusive and equitable society.
While some of the Precept’s programs include mentoring and training programs, others have focused on skills development.
Precept programs are part of a broader set of programs designed to empower women to attain the skills and opportunities they need to be successful in the job market.
In a recent study, researchers at the University of Pennsylvania and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, examined the effectiveness of Precept training and education programs for girls from disadvantaged backgrounds.
The study revealed that the PEP programs offered by the Ministry of Women and Child Development (MWCD) and the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) were effective at increasing the female workforce and improving the economic well-being of girls from marginalized backgrounds.
This research was conducted in collaboration with the Gender Equity Institute, an NGO, in partnership with the National Centre for Gender Equity and Employment (NCGEE), an NGO.
The authors focused on the PDP, a gender-neutral training program, that was introduced in the year 2017 and is designed to ensure equal opportunity in the workplace.
The findings show that PEP provides the most positive outcomes for girls and young women, especially in terms of job retention and advancement.
The PEP programme provides a platform for the government to identify and implement the needs of girls, especially those from marginalized groups, who are disadvantaged by economic inequalities, and who are at high risk of gender-related violence and harassment.
The report was authored by researchers at MIT and the University at Buffalo, with input from the Indian government, the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), the Indian Academy of Sciences, the National Institute of Public Administration and Management (NIPAM), and the Women’s Development and Reforms Commission.
