Connect Skill development goes hand in hand with the market demand.

2. Correct & align supply for demand by up skilling/ reskilling

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.

  • Central: Initiatives here focus on creating the appropriate ecosystem for encouraging skilling efforts.
  • State: At this level Skill Ministry aims to assist states in setting up and driving their skill missions through incentives and other softer enablers that increase the efficacy of their efforts.
  • Private: Scale up private provision in a focused manner that is aligned with demand of the industry.

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.

3. Create pipeline of skilled people

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.

4. Catalyse demand for skill people 

It is to be understood that any economy has limited potential to absorb its workforce in organized sector jobs.  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.

5. Certification & Assessment 

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;

  • Through the alignment of formal qualifications with the National Skills Qualification Framework (NSQF) ,
  • Quality Assessment and Certification and
  • The establishment of an RPL framework suitable for upskilling individuals.

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.

  • These initiatives will be enabled by improved Sector Skills Councils (ensuring relevance of our efforts),
  • Increase in the quantity and quality of vocational instructors, by crating proper career and training opportunities and training institutions and capitalizing on pool of expertise amongst retirees in the armed forces, paramilitary and the private and public sectors as many other countries have done
