Webinar Series on 'Emerging skill development and vocational training landscape in India'
The need for closing the skill gaps and addressing skill deficit has become a high priority agenda, thanks to many schemes and initiatives. This has also generated a lot of enthusiasm and curiosity about how the emphasis on vocational training would impact the mainstream education, employment and employability. At the same time, there is lack of clarity about what the concepts and frameworks actually mean and what the schemes and programs entail for different stakeholders in the skill space in India.
