The general perception of tribal development in India is that there has not been a significant improvement in their socio-economic status.

It was understood that tribal development effort was different from development of other disadvantaged social groups. The vision was that the tribals would nurture their own governing structures without much outsider involvement, keeping the development programmes simple, which in turn, would allow them to decide priorities as per their understanding and development would be measured not by statistics alone. That the tribal development is an important component to achieve the object of inclusive development (Sabka Vikas).

It is expected that the Tribal Research and Training Institute would be the knowledge partner of the government to help understand the tribal society and to train the functionaries of various departments on the salient ethnography of each tribe.
We know very well that tribal candidates are being selected readily as civil servants, doctors, engineers, academicians and so on.
The department would impart training to equip the tribal youth with necessary skillsets in order to diversify their employment options while creating opportunities for self-employment to service the needs of the scheduled area.
Tribals are very dear, heartwarming people of Bharat Mata. Adivasi brothers and sisters have favored the life of our country with their melodious and joyful music, joy of pleasure, unique handicrafts.

One might need to get a job and yet the resume may not be enough.

Maybe you are looking for a specific university degree, or perhaps you already have an existing job and now want to advance your skills within the workplace. No matter what, if you are looking for career advancement opportunities or just learning new skills on the side, there is no better place than with National Skills Development training.

Fundamentally, skill development is the time one invests in to improve their proficiency and to stay future-ready, any agilities that one follows as a passion, and the ability to complete a task with higher rates of success at the right time. It is essential because one’s skills determine their ability to execute their plans with success.

In today’s world, lack of proper education and training restricts people from the opportunities for self-advancement by limiting their access to well-paid employment. Eventually, this prevents such individuals from making an influential contribution to economic growth. Thus, adequate education quality and training has been recognized as a fundamental way of breaking down the eco-system of poverty. One individual, Sweta Mishra, has rightly said, “Skill development is no longer a matter of choice. It is imperative to adapt, survive and succeed.”

Literacy is not just restricted to education but even broadens to the concept of skills, which comprises technical expertise, vocational skills, transferrable skills, digital skills, and other such knowledge and abilities required for employment and livelihood. According to a survey, only 25% of the Indian workforce has undergone a skill development program, and India needs a higher number of skilled workforce.

In this era, many organizations prefer skilled employees over less skilled ones as they have outstanding career growth, and they help boost the organization in the same way with proficient working. Skills intensify the productiveness and quality of work for more significant results. There is a great need for India to train and skill the youth for the overall development of the country.

The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) is accountable for coordinating skill development activities in India. It has supported various organizations like National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), which aims to promote skill development in the country by establishing institutes across the country and National Skill Development Agency (NSDA), which seeks to coordinate the efforts of the government and the private sector and aid in skill development.

The mission seeks to vocational training and certification of Indian youth for a better livelihood and respect in the society. Various initiatives under this campaign are National Skill Development Mission, National Policy for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, 2015, Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), Skill Loan scheme, Rural India Skill, etc.

We must acknowledge the ability of our youth and extend our support by furnishing them with the proper guidance, infrastructure, opportunities and encouragement to go after their ambitions. With the right direction, their passion, skills, sharp critical awareness of the contemporary world and the enthusiasm to play a decisive role can significantly benefit in transforming the world into a better place.

The main objective of the program is to:

  • * Provide Industry-specific training to unemployed and underemployed youth.
  • * Enhance an individual’s employability to adapt to changing technologies and labor market demands.
  • * Improve productivity and living standards of the people.
  • * Create job opportunities for all (youth, women and disadvantaged groups).
  • * Developing the formal and informal apprenticeships.

Skill development is a vital tool to empower people, to safeguard their future and for the overall development of an individual. It is an important aspect that enhances employability in today’s globalization. Skills are as essential as one’s academic status. Education and skills should now go hand in hand. They are the roots behind the economic growth and community development of a country.

Vocational Education refers to a system or course of study which prepares individuals for jobs that are based on manual or practical activities. Vocational Education is traditionally non-academic in nature and is totally related to a specific trade, occupation or vocation. Because it is Vocation based, it is called Vocational Education. But with the development of economies worldwide, the labor market became more specialized. The demand for higher levels of skill both in government and in business sector started increasing. This lead to the further development of vocational education through publicly funded training organizations and subsidized apprenticeship or traineeship initiatives for businesses. At the post-secondary level, vocational education is typically provided by an institute of technology, or by a local community college. Demand for Vocational Professionals is required more than ever in various industries such as retail, tourism, information technology, funeral services and cosmetics, as well as in the traditional crafts and cottage industries.

Vocational education prepares an individual for a job and not college. While most colleges will accept vocational education students, they tend to be limited because most colleges lack proper courses. Vocational education is a multifaceted one as it tends to focus around several careers which include auto repair, woodworking, carpentry, blacksmith, cosmetology, and other fields. There are many vocational schools across the country which provide the students to gain valuable hands-on experience.

The career of one's own choice is one of the major benefits of this education. A vast majority of people are caught in the wrong jobs because they were in it for the sake of job, money, lack of alternative and professional compromise whereas an individual pursuing Vocational Education is already pursuing his dream job.

This type of education is a great asset to the economy. Our government need not import foreign technicians on higher wages as our own can do the required work. Certain vocational skills acquired from Vocational Education teaches students the importance of manual work. The physical labour done under certain jobs makes them strong, healthy, active. Majority of Vocational Skills are applicable all over the world and these create employment opportunities in foreign countries. Technical programs develop the economy by bridging the demand and supply gap with highly skilled workers. It also gives students the opportunity to take marketable skills from the classroom directly into the working world. Better Vocational Education also attracts foreign investment and foreign exchange in form of foreign conglomerate and foreign students.

School drop-outs and adults can also receive this type of education as it provides an opportunity to learn a skill or trade. There are many well-paid career fields in which a college degree is not required.

Another benefit is that Hands-on work activities allow direct application of acquired knowledge.This education provides stable jobs as these are the jobs whose demand is never fulfilled.

Vocational schools help with bridging the skills gap between work and education. Students do not enter the work field with little practical experience regarding the tools and environments in which they will work. Instead, they have specifically worked in these situations throughout their education under the supervision of their trainers. This creates a more favorable employability skills assessment. Potential employers can look at the academic record of these students and know the type of skills they will already have when they first enter the building. This effect can be leveraged even more, when a training institution is applying a competency based training approach that is mapped with the industry's needs.

Employers can feel confident that the candidates they receive from a quality school already have the experience and training they need to begin work right away.
