So you think you cannot make a great career out of a vocational training & education programme? Think again.
Youngsters like you are increasingly getting skilled and are representing India on global platforms with their skills. They’re winning medals. They’re making India proud. And they’re making great careers out of their passion for the jobs they do.
India quite recently bagged eight medallions of excellence at the 43rd WorldSkills international Competition Yes, 8 medallions of excellence – in the last event, India had won 3 medallions. The recently concluded completion was held in Sao Paulo, Brazil and ran from 11-15 August 2015.
Participants from India showed their skills in cooking, prototype modeling, beauty therapy and many other skills. And there were as many as 1189 competitors from 59 countries. Imagine the energy, the crowd, the cheers, and the excitement – don’t you want to be a part of all this?
Vocational training and education is no longer what it once used to be – the world is changing its perception towards vocationally talented workforce. They’re increasingly realizing the value that skilled workforce brings to their business – and therefore, from central governments to state governments to private training companies, everybody involved is partnering with the youth to build a skilled world, a skilled India. Why don’t you also become a part of this revolution?
For long, vocational training and education was thought of only for those who were not academically gifted – youth as well as their families would prefer formal education over vocational courses and careers. However, the scenario has rapidly changed in all these years.
The invasion of foreign players as well as the increasing robustness of Indian economy gave birth to millions of jobs for skilled manpower. This trend is likely to continue for many more years to come. The only prominent challenge lying before the country is it doesn’t have sufficient trained workforce to match the industry demands. To tackle the challenge, NSDC has been partnering with training companies across the country to target and train the youth in different skills that make them job-ready in high-growth sectors such as retail, construction, and automobile. The outcomes are promising so far – but we need to put in enormous efforts to make a real change and meet the demands of industries for skilled workforce.
It’s time you should contemplate taking up a vocational training programme because there’s a lot you can do with skills – and then ‘Hunar Hai Toh Hi Kadar Hai’. .
