Theme: “Theme: “Era of Skill Development : Inspire, Innovate & Integrate”

Prime Minister, Narendra Modiji had launched his pet project, 'Skill India Campaign' on the occasion of World Youth Skill day in June 2015. The launch of the mission assures significance as India currently faces a shortage of well trained skilled workforce.
The enormity of India skilling challenge is further aggravated by the fact that skill training efforts cut across multiple sectors and requires the involvement of diverse stake holders such as multiple government department at the centre and state level , private training providers, education and training institute , employees, industry associations, assessments and certification bodies and trainees. All the stakeholders need to align their work together in order to achieve the target of 'skill India'.The framework for implementation of Skill development tries to provide strategic direction to establish a clear line of action to enable India to achieve its skill targets; it will help to get the opinions & researched expressions of academicians from all disciplines to give their inputs on making the program more effective.
Research is required to understand whether the policy is comprehensive or not, are there any gaps in what is being planned & implemented and what is actually required. It may also be necessary to study the effectiveness of the program, to study whether target groups are identified & are appropriate and also if the program is rolled out at all the levels of education. It may be worth studying how 'skill Development' can be incorporated in the regular curriculum of education at various levels.
International contribution is also invited from faculties of other countries as well, as this will give us an understanding of how & what is being done at international levels in the area of Skill Development and also how the program in India be geared up to make our youth globally competative.
