It is ironic that we spend years laying the basic foundation of knowledge from schools and later earn degrees and still find ourselves jobless!!! It is terrifying to see these learned youth facing the scarcity of employment. According to Aspiring Minds National Employability Report, of the 1.5 lakh engineering graduates in 2015 from over 650 colleges, 80% are unemployable. It is shocking that the same is happening with other areas too. When we peep deep into the current burning issue, we find a serious skill development crisis in our entire education process. In Indian education system, we focus on an instructor-based approach of learning. Students are not taught any specific skills that will benefit them in finding jobs.
There is an overpowering need for skilled workers in India. Though there are around 20 million youth added to the workforce every year, only a small percentage out of them actually manage to secure a job. This is because even though they possess a graduation degree, they do not possess the necessary skills required in the 21st century job industry to get employed.
National Skill India Mission (NSIM) has developed a one-stop, how-to guide on developing and recruiting a skilled workforce. We all know that, there are unlimited unemployed youths in India after holding a degree, professional Degree or Diploma and searching for jobs. In the meantime it is also a matter of fact that thousands of vacancies are open in industry for want of skilled persons. This controversy is only because; our educated youth have no marketable skills or skilled hands may have no valid documents to prove their skills. In such a context we assess your skills and have them recognized to improve your chances of finding employment.
Nsim with the vision “To provide training and skill development to the youth of our country covering each and every village/city and to empower all individuals through improved skills, knowledge and employment opportunities”, is looking forward to bridge skill supply and skill demand.
