NSDC aims to catalyse the skilling ecosystem by fostering private sector initiatives. NSDC, along with the support of its 39 Sector Skill Councils and 300+ training partners, works relentlesslyto create a successful model for the country which is being periodically evaluated to ensure performance and effectiveness.NSDC has a robust communications strategy to ensure the momentum of the program sustains and progresses. It also encourages the curious youth to come forward and get skilled. There is a constant creation of content and marketing data (Poster Campaign, animation video, TVC’s etc.) available with NSDC which the partners and all other stakeholders can utilize to generate awareness about their training programs.
NSDC first launched its advertisement campaign,“Hunar Hai Toh Kadar Hai” with two television commercials (TVC) which aired in February – March 2014. These TVCs highlighted the success stories of people with real ambitions in the automotive and retail sector, aspiring the youth to take up skilling to gain pride and recognition in the society. These collaterals are available for marketing purposes.
Further to this, NSDC launched a campaign under the theme,'ChaloKaamKarein'in 2015-16, which symbolizes the overall mission of Skill India that is make the youth across the country employable. Thereafter, youth icon Sachin Tendulkar lent support to Skill India Mission by supporting an endorsement campaign to motivate young people to come forward and acquire a skill.
In the subsequent years, many sports and film personalities have endorsed Skill India Mission and have lent their support to inspire youth to join the mission.
