Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE) is an integral part of the government policy on "Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas" and its commitment to overall human resource development to take advantage of the demographic profile of our country's population in the coming years. The objective of the National Policy on Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, 2015 is to meet the challenge of skilling at scale with speed and standard (quality). It aims to provide an umbrella framework to all skilling activities being carried out within the country, to align them to common standards and link the skilling with demand centres. In addition to laying down the objectives and expected outcomes, the effort is also to identify the various institutional frameworks which can act as the vehicle to reach the expected outcomes. The national policy also provides clarity and coherence on how skill development efforts across the country can be aligned within the existing institutional arrangements. According to studies, by 2025 India is slated to have 65% of its populace in the working age bracket which would roughly translate to around 95 Crore people, while the world grows older including the likes of China, Japan, East Asia, US and parts of Europe. It is here that the Government’s policy measures and skill development initiatives come to the fore. F-TEC is working closely with NSDC and State Governments to take Centre and State led skill development initiatives to the field.
