Skill Development A socio-economic neccesity

Low skills perpetuate poverty and inequality. When done right, skills development can reduce un- and underemployment, increase productivity, and improve standards of living.

Skill development is critical for economic growth and social development. The demographic transition of India makes it imperative to ensure employment opportunities for millions of youths entering working age annually. To enable employment ready workforce in the future, the youth need to be equipped with necessary skills and education.

The development of skills can contribute to structural transformation and economic growth by enhancing employability and labor productivity and helping countries to become more competitive. Investment in a high-quality workforce can create a virtuous cycle, where relevant and quality skills enable productivity growth and foreign direct investment, which result in more and better jobs for the current workforce and more public and private investment in the education and training system. This, in turn, increases the employability and productivity for both the current and future workforce. 

In order to motivate the country’s youth, the Indian Government has launched Skill Development Missions. National Skill Development Mission offers courses in segments like agriculture, apparels, automotive, aviation and aerospace, beauty and wellness, banking-financial services-insurance (BFSI), capital goods, construction, domestic workers, electronics and hardware, food processing, furniture and fittings, gems and jewellery, green jobs, handicrafts and carpet, healthcare, hydrocarbon, infrastructure equipment, iron and steel, IT-ITeS, leather, life science, logistics, management, media, mining, paints and coatings, plumbing, power, PwD, retail, rubber, sports, telecom, textiles and handloom, tourism and hospitality.
