NSDC acts as a catalyst in skill development by providing funding to enterprises, companies and organisations that provide skill training. It will also develop appropriate models to enhance, support and coordinate private sector initiatives. It was set up as part of a national skill development mission to fulfil the growing need in India for skilled manpower across sectors and narrow the existing gap between the demand and supply of skills. Since it’s inception, one of the pillar on which NSDC was built are the Sector Skill Councils (SSCs), which play a vital role in bridging the gap between what the industry wants and what the skilling curriculum ought to be. The National Occupational Standard is one of the most significant contribution of NSDC to India’s skilling ecosystem – something that was made possible by the SSCs, which are national partnership organizations that bring together all the stakeholders – industry, labour and the academia. In order to achieve this ‘Skilling’ needs to start from formative years of a child. NCPCR has recommended to CABE Committee 2016 for imparting vocational skill based Education which requires detailing of skill based programs and ensuring them to be adopted as part of curriculum for children in schools. For this, the first and foremost step is to create awareness regarding the various skill programmes by NSDC in form of an application.
