There are about 25 crore youngsters in India including 75 lakhs in Odisha between the age group of 15-25 years, who need to be brought under the skilling ecosystem.
Launching India’s first Skill India International Centre at Skill Development Institute (SDI) Bhubaneshwar, Union Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Dharmendra Pradhan said: “We will leave no one behind and ensure skill, knowledge and employability linkages for all to achieve fast-paced development of Odisha and India.”
The launch of Skill India International Centre, WorldSkills Academy and National Academy for Skill Teachers at SDI and the signing of MoU between National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) and international employers are big strides towards transforming India into the skill capital of the world. The initiatives launched will not just open up overseas job opportunities for the youth but also create a world-class workforce.
National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 is a guiding philosophy to convert aspirations into reality. The Skill India International Centre will offer high-quality training of Indian youth, especially the aspirants from Odisha aiming to work overseas. The centre will host training facilities to provide skills as per the demand of international employers in countries like UAE, Canada, Australia and other GCC regions.
