Karnataka government, sharpening the trade skills of students

An agreement has been signed between National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and the Government of Karnataka, on Monday. According to the agreement, trade skills will be imparted to 100 schools to make students employable after secondary education.

"We hope to deliver training modules, as it is imperative to harness skills at the education stage so youth are trained and employable from the beginning," says NSDC principal Rajiv Mathur.

Students will be equipped with trade skills


The programme will be implemented in Class IX and Class XI, the Union resources development ministry had already approved the project for Karnataka, with the funding from central and state governments.

The central government revised its vocational training in secondary education by integrating employability education into school education in September 2011, and made operational within the national vocational education qualification framework.

"As we see huge potential in the state's youth, we will ensure they receive the right skills and education for better future," Mathur added.

The scheme envisages covering a million skilled people overtime. The monetary reward is based on obtaining a certificate that will be issued by qualified assessors after passing tests.

The skills are also benchmarked to national occupational standards developed by NSDCwith the support of sector skill councils. The NSDC was formed in 2010 under the finance ministry under the public-private partnership, with 51% equity held by private sector and 49% by the central government.

As a not for profit entity, the corporation includes 26 sector skill councils and 104 training partners with 2,500 training centers across 400 districts in the country.
