In India, unemployment and underemployment are the greatest concerns. Even in the vast ocean of unemployed people, we do not get the right personnel for doing the right jobs. We find that there is as much surplus of the workforce and there is also a shortage. Several job positions are going vacant due to the lack of suitable personnel.

Skills are essential for the social and economic stability of the nation. With a vast population profile, India needs to impart sufficient skills to its workforce. The unemployment and poverty resulting from inadequate economic growth rates will hinder other efforts to place India amongst the top global economic powers.

Therefore, the vital concerns of India are the acceleration of economic growth, literacy, education, and the employment of skilled youth in the next few decades.

Skill Development and Employment

What is the Need of the Hour?

Literacy is not just restricted to education; it involves skills, which encompasses technical expertise, vocational, transferable, digital, and other knowledge & abilities needed for employment and livelihood. A skilful employee benefits the organization with proficient working.

The World Trade Organization has suggested that India's focus on skill development and training is to increase GDP by 5% in 2035. This is a necessity for the overall development of youth and the economy.

The young population is a strong suit only if they are educated, skilled, and find productive employment. If this happens, our dream of realizing India's potential to grow at 10 per cent or more per annum for a substantial period can become a reality.

Additionally, the demography plays as a window of opportunity to India to become the skilled capital of the world. As a result, India would be able to meet the requirement of technically trained human resources for its growing economy and the ageing advanced economies of the world.

Skill Development and Employment

What Do We do?

The Humanity Welfare Council is starting an initiative to empower India by establishing practical training centres in various institutions across the nation. With the help of these skill learning and training workshops, we can empower every Indian to earn their daily bread and butter.

HWC and the Government of India are working on initiating skill learning in institutions by introducing strategic training plans through:

  1. The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) which is responsible for arranging skill development activities in India.
  2. On 15 July 2015, the Skill India Mission was launched, which promises to provide skilled training to over 40 crore people in India in different skills by 2022.
  3. National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) aims to establish skilled learning centres all over India.
  4. National Skill Development Agency (NSDA) combines Government and private sector efforts for skill development in India.

These initiatives are encouraged to equip Indian youth with vocational training and practical certification to provide everyone with independent and respectful living.

Skill development is an innovative and resourceful tool to safeguard the young generation's future and lead India towards the path of development.

Skills encompasses technical expertise, vocational, transferable, digital, and other knowledge & abilities needed for employment and livelihood. A skilful employee benefits the organization with proficient working.

Due to the increasing competition in the global economy, industries, and firms, the developed and developing countries look for an employee with a higher level of skills, who can engage in the innovative task and can also improve the quality and services of their organization/company. This is the core of Skill Development and Employment.
