New Delhi — In a strategic meeting with industry partners, both philanthropic and corporate, on the country’s skill development agenda, Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Rajiv Pratap Rudy has asked various industries and corporations to come together to scale skill development initiatives with speed and bring about standardisation in the process.

Addressing the meeting here yesterday, the minister said, scaling skill development initiatives is one of the bigger challenges, but addressing the need to assure quality while scaling up initiatives is extremely crucial. He said, in order to have a synergy between attaining scale and ensuring quality, the country needed resources in terms of infrastructural support, efficient credible trainers, set-up for conducting sessions and so on.

The minister said this could be achieved as we build the ecosystem of skill development by partnering with institutions across the country and abroad. He said it was important to bring about standardisation into the processes of skill development initiatives. He further asked the different corporations and industry partners present in the meeting to step ahead and share their inputs on how they envisioned the new skill policy and what reformations they would like to recommend.

The focus of the meeting was to bring together all stakeholders of the ministry in order to map all infrastructure across public and private sector in India and submit a detailed plan on the ways in which existing capacities could be utilised for skill development. Secretary Sunil Arora along with heads of National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and National Skill Development Agency (NSDA) were present at the meeting attended by more than 100 representatives across 30 training partners, 31 sector skill councils and 10 assessment agencies along with several innovators.

Some of the core areas of discussion included the challenges and opportunities in skill development and the ways in which stakeholders can leverage various synergies in the ‘skilling’ ecosystem; raising resources for developing skills of Indians; rationalising skill development initiatives; the learning from the monetary reward scheme and scaling up strategies. The sessions also focused on the role of Sector Skill Councils (SSCs) that would essentially imbibe the ideology of ‘for the people, of the people and by the people’.
