    • 1. eINDIA 2011 Skills Development- A German Perspective Shrikant Bansal 15 December 2011
    • 2. Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH
      • As an international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations, the federally owned GIZ supports the German Government in implementing its development policy objectives.
      • Our corporate objective is to improve people’s living conditions on a sustainable basis.
      • We work on behalf of the German Federal Government and other public and private sector, and national and international bodies.
      • Presence in 121 countries, 20000 experts and turnover of over EUR 2 Billion.
    • 3. Skills Gaps in India
      • Facts
      • India adds about 12.8 Million workers per year out of which:
        • 40% are illiterate
        • 25% have only Primary Education
      • Estimated Skill gap 10 Million per Year (Present training capacity 3.1 Million)
      • Source: FICCI Skill Survey, Jan 2010
      • Challenges
      • Lack of Industry linkages
      • Shortage of trained and qualified teachers
      • No vertical mobility for vocational trained person
      • Exclusive reliance on the traditional training courses
      • Initiatives
      • National Skills Development Corporation- for viability gap funding
          • Massive expansion planned (1600 ITI/Polytechnics, 10000 vocational schools, 50000 skill development centers, quadruple seating capacity to 10 Mio. annually)
      • Modernisation of State run Vocational schools (ITI) in PPP model
      • Sector Skill Councils by apex industry bodies
      DEMAND For employable workforce Supply Mismatch
    • 4. The Development Gap Wherever you look: India is white collar biased, top-heavy, and bottom-weak. The analytical abilities may be brilliant, but lacks in skills. Lacking: the competence, the capacity to act. Level of the individual: How to nourish the skills to act, create and transform? The Prisoners’ Dilemma: Opportunistic pursue of short-term objectives by many leads to short-term gains for some and long-term losses for everybody Skill Development needs collective action Level of the enterprise: How to obtain qualified staff, when and where needed?
      • Demographic pressure: 500 Mio / 10 years
      • imminent structural change in agro sector
      • inclusive growth = job-rich growth
      • massive jobs = massive industrial dev. 2 Revolutions: Industrial + Skill Development
      Level of society: How to create income and employment for the masses of poor youth, entering the labor market?

    • 14. “ If I were a poet, I could write poetry on the possibilities of the five fingers. Why should you think that the mind is everything and the hands and feet nothing. Those who do not train their hands, who go through the ordinary rut of education, lack the ‘music’ in their life”. - Mahatma Gandhi
