India has the world's youngest work force with a median age way below that of China and OECD countries. Half the population of India was younger than 25 in 2010. It will change to half the population being under 28 in 2030, making India a very young country for the next 20 years. Employability of graduates coming out of our educational system is becoming a matter of great concern with numerous studies observing only 25% of the general graduates across all streams having employable skills National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) has been given an onerous responsibility of skilling 150 million learners across 20 high-growth sectors, which would be impossible without the spread of Technical and Vocational education. Technical and Vocational education in a broad sense lay down the foundation for innovation and know-how, resulting in a lower unemployment rate and subsequently boosting India's economic growth in the 21st century.

Abstract


India has the world's youngest work force with a median age way below that of China and OECD countries. Half the population of India was younger than 25 in 2010. It will change to half the population being under 28 in 2030, making India a very young country for the next 20 years. Employability of graduates coming out of our educational system is becoming a matter of great concern with numerous studies observing only 25% of the general graduates across all streams having employable skills National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) has been given an onerous responsibility of skilling 150 million learners across 20 high-growth sectors, which would be impossible without the spread of Technical and Vocational education. Technical and Vocational education in a broad sense lay down the foundation for innovation and know-how, resulting in a lower unemployment rate and subsequently boosting India's economic growth in the 21st century.
