50 Crore Youth to be trained in Vocational Skills by 2022

The Centre has set a target to impart vocational skills to about 50 crore youth in the country by 2022, Union Minister of State for Labour Kodikunnil Suresh has said.

Speaking at the 7th National Skill Conference organized by the Functional Vocational Training and Research Society (FVTRS) here on 28th November, Suresh said the reason for unemployment in the country is not because of non-availability of job opportunities but due to lack of skilled manpower. "There is no dearth of jobs in the country but the problem is that our youth are not employable due to lack of technical skills," he said.

"Today?s youth are not employable as they are unskilled. In the current scenario only 7 per cent of India's working population is organized, only 2.4 lakh apprentices find their way into industry and 25 per cent of engineers are employable. The government has recognized the need to train youth of the country and has undertaken various initiatives in this regard,"he said.

He said the Union labour department has been given a target to train about 50 crore youths in various skills by 2022. To change the current scenario, educational curriculum should be prepared in such a way that our youth get vocational training according to market needs and demands, he said.

The Centre has set up a National Skill Development Agency (NSDA), which would work towards coordination of skill development efforts of the Central and state governments as well as public and private-sector industries. There are more than 10,000 ITIs in the country through which thousands of youth were being trained in various skills, he said.

Houstan community college foreign relations executive director Ricardo J Solis said in the current scenario it is not the degree which is important but the skills one possess. "Youth need skills to get jobs and we have to focus on this part rather than concentrating on conventional learning systems. It is not about teaching but learning," he remarked. FVTRS president Antony Kariyil said his organization has more than 800 vocational training projects.
