India’s populace is immense at 1.21 billion. It is expanding at a rate of 17% and is turning quickly into a worldwide economy. India is one of the most youthful nations on the planet, with the extent of the workforce in the age group of 15-59 years increasing consistently. Be that as it may, by and by, just 2% of the aggregate workforce of India has gone through an aptitude preparation. India has an incredible chance to meet the future demands of the world – India can turn into the overall sourcing center point for a talented workforce. The difficulties for the country get amplified, though, as it needs to connect with a million or more of the workforce-prepared populace while confronting a constantly-expanding movement of work, from agribusiness to assembling and administrations. With the administration propelling various plans to engage this youthful workforce, the difficulties amplify as there is a requirement for a compelling execution of these plans at a grassroot level, with a rise of cooperation from every single partner concerned.
This has lead to the fuss of creating a connected path of different key stakeholders with the aim of facilitating the journey of learning and bridging the gap to the best possible extensions. This is the reason why the key players are contributing to the policy of making a change in the skilling and learning sector of the country. Here are a few of those in detail.
The private sector has been taking various initiatives on its own and in collaboration with the government and international entities to upgrade in-house training facilities, and also to provide training to potential employees to make them job-ready. Many large corporations like Larsen & Toubro, Bharti Group, Hero Group, Maruti, ITC, Infrastructure Leasing & Finance Services Ltd., etc., have established training facilities that offer world-class training programs that create an environment of e-learning and innovation. What follows are the 5 CSR stories of renowned industries that take an initiative in skilling India. Continue reading “5 Stories Of Change: By The Corporate”
The huge chain of networks that exists in everyone’s life is bound by a pattern of dots – the dots to connect different relations, different emotions, different choices, and different preferences, which come together to complete you as a person of unique identity.
Not beating around the bush, let’s understand the concept of dots! The learning process in India has always been complex, where there is an idea of a network, but lack of implementation. The need for change requires this idea to transform into a well-defined concept, tagged as an ecosystem, where the dots are the key stakeholders, each of them placed at different positions with different sets of responsibilities that can have completely different reactions in the building of a new, sustainable ecosystem, if connected in the correct pattern.
It’s not always about the goal, sometimes it’s about the role!
Only the roads to a successful journey can lead to the correct destination. And remember, learning is always a journey – but who facilitates this path? Our key stakeholder!
The ecosystem we work towards achieving has different components with a unique set of responsibilities, which, in a flow of network, can contribute to the most effective learning system. If we be specific and list out their roles, they go as follows:
- The NGOs focus on skill-development and livelihood-creation by creating entrepreneurial opportunities for the students. While adopting the neglected segments of the society, NGOs endeavor to encourage community participation to the optimal extent, both in planning and implementation, to contribute to the strong network of learning.
- With the necessary resources and expertise in various domains in the sector, corporates have started taking initiatives by training and building skills in-house. The private sector can also strengthen skill-development by contributing to governance through national committees or other institutional arrangements. They can help identify the demand for skills, feed into curricula development, and deliver monitoring and evaluation activities as well.
- Government agencies work towards the development of various programs and schemes. With schemes like Make in India, Skill India, Kaushal Vikas Yojna, etc., the government is ensuring a qualitative change by means of thorough implementation that can help the country’s economy, service delivery, and technology improvement.
- Training partners hold a very important role as they provide skill-specific training and capacity-building to the students.
There is nothing wrong with change if it is in the right direction.
