India at this moment has a great demographic advantage and opportunity with 65% of human resource pool under the age of 35 and over 12 million more shall be added, year on year (India Skill Report, UNDP). This great opportunity for growth comes embedded with a greater challenge to equip them with employable skills and skills that ensure career progression.
The employment landscape is changing briskly with disruptive developments in business models across the globe, and there is a compelling need to provide adequate and relevant skilling, re-skilling, up-skilling and cross-skilling to remain relevant and retain the competitive edge. A report by FICCI-NASSCOM, ‘Future of Skills and Jobs in India’ states that 9% of the workforce would be deployed in new jobs that do not exist today that would require skilling in emerging technologies in a sustained manner.
The Skilling models need to transform from ‘teaching mode’ to ‘facilitation learning’ mode that match the current and emerging requirements. Models that exactly map the needs of the industry and those that open up opportunities to people down to the bottom of the pyramid are the need of the hour.
