The 5 strategic pillars of ‘Skill India Mission’ | the 5Cs
Connect Skill development goes hand in hand with the market demand. In order to make its efforts effective, Skill Ministry will focus on developing an understanding of the demand and supply dynamics of skills requirements as well as practically matching trained individuals to jobs anywhere in the country/world. Keeping the global changes in mind Skill Ministry will forge international partnerships to be prepared to serve the demands of global Indian workforce.
With the NSDC as leading implementation agency, Skill Ministry has a specific focus on scaling up short-term skill development programs. These are courses of shorter duration targeted at individuals with lower education qualifications, those in the informal segment and the unemployed.
Skill Ministry’s efforts will be conducted on 3 levels, at the central and state levels and through private initiatives.
Skill Ministry also be aligned to the country’s flagship programmes such as Swachh Bharat, Make in India, Digital India and Solar Mission. It also believes that existing infrastructure such as railway stations and post offices that provide unused space with digital connectivity could be utilized to increase the scale and reach of its initiatives.
Creation of a pipeline of skilled workforce is an essential input to India’s plans of development. Skill Ministry ’s focus is to drive the quantity and quality of skills training across existing educational institutions, ITIs and through a new set of dedicated institutions representing best-in-class vocational education. It is also making sure that these institutes are better aligned with the standards and requirements of industry and business. Skill Ministry aim is to also address the issue of low appeal amongst youth for skills training through these institutions.

Focus is needed to increase the confidence of individuals to pursue their ideas, support them as they turn these into reality and then provide them with the tools and knowledge they need to scale these up into viable businesses. This would be done by linking entrepreneurship education to universities and schools, establishing incubation and support centers dedicated for entrepreneurship and providing access to credit to the entrepreneurs.
Alongside the efforts to increase the proportion of skilled workers in India’s workforce, quality and relevance of training should be ensured. This is required on 3 levels;
Skill Ministry is defining excellence through partnership with corporates in business and industry to create centres of excellence in sectors and job groups and restructuring institutional arrangements.
