Skill Development Schemes for Uneducated People





Skill Development Schemes for Uneducated People

Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship Shri Rajiv Pratap Rudy has said that the Government has no specific guidelines on requirement of minimum level of education for uneducated people for skill development programmes. However, specific Qualification Pack  under the National Occupational Standards (QP-NOS) have been formulated to create a base for designing Industry relevant skill development programmes.
Every QP-NOS defines the minimum and maximum educational qualifications required in order to undergo training. As of date over 900 QP-NOS have been developed across 22 Sectors. The complete list is available on NSDC website http://www.nsdcindia.org/node/79 .

In a written reply in the Rajya Sabha today Shri Rudy said, the Government proposes to link these skill development programmes to outcomes in the form of wage or self-employment. A Committee set up by the Government to rationalize all central schemes on skill development, has recommended that a minimum level of placement be required in all Government funded programmes, with the candidates being monitored and tracked for a period of one year, after completion of the training, to assess the outcomes of the trainings imparted.
