|In India only 10 percent of fresh graduates are employable, as the majority lacks industry specific skills. We need to emphasise on vocational training for target groups like school dropouts, women and socially backward
groups of our society. Also, we have to do away with the stigma attached with vocational education to attract the best talent.
Dr U C Pandey, Regional Director,
IGNOU Regional Centre
|We have been working for the last 27 years in the unorganised sector in the backward districts of the country. We provide short-term and entry-level courses in regional languages. Our focus is on providing skills development in areas that are relevant to that particular region, like data entry operators, bank kiosk operators, hardware-repair, and maintenance of mobile, etc.
Abhishek Pandit, Director, Business Services, AISECT
|TextIndia has become one of the major hubs for knowledge outsourcing and skill development. The quality of skill enhancement programmes, their variety and delivery has become major advantage for the world. It is only in India that you can find skill development enhancement solution for any need. One of the most sought after course is the algorithm training programme. Another emerging area of skill development is that of cyber security, given the rising cyber criminal activities.
Amit Kumar, Managing Director, Dr A Kumar Institute of Education; President, Cyberfort Technologies
|Our education system is more theoretical leaning on getting good grades, but we do not create professionals. We have to build linkages between all sections of education to enable skill development along with knowledge generation.
Dr Aarti Srivastava,
National University of Educational Planning and Administration
|Recently, the Government of Andhra Pradesh started Rajiv Yuva Kiranalu scheme. It aims to build job specific skills among the unemployed, and place them in appropriate private job sectors like construction. However, it is essential to make people aware about the different vocational skills and their learning centres.
