Edurays Skill development Training program

The Government of India has adopted skill development as a national priority over the next 10 years. India has gradually evolved as a knowledge-based economy due to the abundance of capable, flexible and qualified human capital. However, there is a need to further develop and empower the human capital to ensure the country's global competiveness.

Despite the emphatic stress laid on education and training in this country, there is still a shortage of skilled manpower to address the mounting needs and demands of the economy. 

In order to truly rebalance the economy and set it on the path of sustainable development, addressing the growing skills deficit of India's youthful population poses a major policy challenge. In an increasingly globalized age where the competition for growth and jobs is intense, there is an undeniable need to upskill the Indian workforce. This is a fundamental issue that demands urgent policy attention and institutional reform. To begin with, simply grasping the scale of the issue might make for a good start. According to the 11th five-year plan, only 10% of the Indian workforce has formal training in the form of higher education, technical education or vocational training. India currently has an annual training capacity of 4.3 million, which is less than 20% of the industry requirement of 22 million skilled workers a year.

This is breathtakingly paltry in the context of the central government's target of creating a skilled workforce of 500 million by 2022. This mushrooming skills deficit has deep seated social and economic implications. In particular, India's oft-cited demographic dividend could easily turn into a disaster if a majority of its youthful population fails to secure employment due to a lack of skills. Moreover, a lack of social mobility and economic inequality may get exacerbated too with stark consequences. Unless the skills gap is addressed, a vision of sustainable economic progress may be illusory. Research undertaken on the subject suggests that there are myriad deficiencies with the current approach and implementation of the skills development agenda.

As an immediate necessity that has urgently arisen from the current scenario, the government is dedicatedly striving to initiate and achieve formal/informal skill development via education/vocational education/skill training and other upcoming learning methods

India has the advantage of the "demographic dividend" (younger population compared to the ageing population of developed countries), which can be cultivated to build a skilled workforce in the near future.
