To make Indians employable, the government will come out with a policy on skill development in next three months and also decided to house skill development university in Raipur, Chhattisgarh.

Minister of State (Independent Charge) for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Rajiv Pratap Rudy has announced that India's first National Skill Development University will be inaugurated in Raipur, Chhattisgarh.

"The government is in the process of formulating a skill development policy under the initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, which would be finalized in the next three months," said Rudy.

The government's focus is on skill development so as to generate more employable manpower, Rudy said.

The minister in an interview to GovernanceNow had spoken about the need for skill development and the target that he had set. 

He had told the magazine that a huge plan has been rolled out. The 31 sector skill councils [SSCs, like beauty and wellness, power, handicraft] are going to establish the curriculum, standardisation, certification and employment.

Rudy had also mentioned about quality and scale, the two key words. These two things will be fundamental to skill development.

He had told during an event organized by the Ficci that such an university would help impart skills while providing people with a degree that is considered “respectable” like other university degrees of Bachelors and Masters.

Indicating that a new national skilling policy would soon be announced, he had said that the ministry is also looking at reviewing the 500 million people target for skilling by 2022.

Meanwhile, Cambridge University, which has skill development programme lists various skills available to the students. They are: Intellectual skills, communication skills, interpersonal skills, organisational skills, computer literacy, research skills, numeracy and foreign language skills.

According to the university website these programmes (often in the form of short courses, seminars or workshops) are usually focussed on helping the student with academic studies (e.g. technical/lab or report writing skills), but many will also be of relevance to a person’s broader personal development.

It also gives information on topics like - What skills do I have?, gow can I record them?, what do I want to do?, what do employers want?, how can I improve my prospects? and how can I communicate my skills?.
