As per the National Policy for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, 2015- “National Skills Universities and Institutes will be promoted in partnership with States as centres of excellence for skill development and training of trainers, either as de-novo institutions or as a part of existing university landscape. It is desired that these institutions become aspirational for candidates as other premier institutes around the country. These institutions, apart from skilling candidates through affiliates and training the trainers, will also conduct extensive research to enhance the quality and delivery of skill training by keeping abreast with latest developments in the skills space”.
At present, the country faces a skill demand-supply mismatch, as the economy needs more ‘skilled’ workforce than created annually. Besides, a majority of the contemporary institutions of higher learning are quite disconnected with the requirements of employers. Skill oriented courses available in the country on the average, have low credibility and acceptability with the employers, low aspirational value and are perceived as options of last resort. Further, the existence of a large, disaggregated base of training providers and the need for effective implementation of recognition of prior learning (RPL), competency-based modular courses and credit 2 framework across educational streams for transferability of learning, has highlighted the requirement of a university-based system to lend credibility to the skills ecosystem.
conceived and constructed with a clear mandate for skills education would create a parallel vocational counterpart to general education. These institutions would offer practical real-world training in industrial & services sector setting with employer linkage as the primary driver of skills education which will lay the foundation for a successful skills training system in the country. Such universities shall cater to the national and international job markets across sectors. Through such network of Skills Universities, skills based education will acquire aspirational value and social acceptability in the society and the economy.

The main goal is to create opportunities, space and scope for the development of the talents of the Indian youth and to develop more of those sectors which have already been put under skill development for the last so many years and also to identify new sectors for skill development. The new programme aims at providing training and skill development to 500 million youth of our country by 2020, covering each and every village. Various schemes are also proposed to achieve this objective.
The emphasis is to skill the youths in such a way so that they get employment and also improve entrepreneurship.
Provides training, support and guidance for all occupations that were of traditional type like carpenters, cobblers, welders, blacksmiths, masons, nurses, tailors, weavers etc.
More emphasis will be given on new areas like real estate, construction, transportation, textile, gem industry, jewellery designing, banking, tourism and various other sectors, where skill development is inadequate or nil.
The training programmes would be on the lines of international level so that the youths of our country can not only meet the domestic demands but also of other countries like the US, Japan, China, Germany, Russia and those in the West Asia.
Another remarkable feature of the ‘Skill India’ programme would be to create a hallmark called ‘Rural India Skill’, so as to standardise and certify the training process.
Tailor-made, need-based programmes would be initiated for specific age groups which can be like language and communication skills, life and positive thinking skills, personality development skills, management skills, behavioural skills, including job and employability skills.
The course methodology of ‘Skill India’ would be innovative, which would include games, group discussions, brainstorming sessions, practical experiences, case studies etc.
The Skill India programme has numerous benefits. For instance, with proper skill development, the youth of India can access better-paying jobs and experience a higher standard of living. Further, with proper development at the grass root level, every sector within the economy will experience equal growth. Lastly, with trained Indians entering the workforce, better results can be achieved at a quicker pace, which has the potential to boost the country’s economic growth.
The idea is to raise confidence, improve productivity and give direction through proper skill development. Skill development will enable the youths to get blue-collar jobs. Development of skills, at an young age, right at the school level, is very essential to channelise them for proper job opportunities. There should be a balanced growth in all the sectors and all jobs should be given equal importance. Every job aspirant would be given training in soft skills to lead a proper and decent life. Skill development would reach the rural and remote areas also. Corporate educational institutions, non-government organizations, Government, academic institutions, and society would help in the development of skills of the youths so that better results are achieved in the shortest time possible.
