Global Skill Mapping for a Resilient, Equitable, Inclusive, and Sustainable Future

The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), in conjunction with the Government of India’s Skill India Mission (SIM), provides skill, re-skill, and up-skill training to all segments of the nation through a number of programs, including the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY), Jan Shikshan Sansthan (JSS), National Apprenticeship Promotion Scheme (NAPS), and Craftsman Training Scheme (CTS) via Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs).

The SIM aspires to provide Indian youngsters with future-ready and industry-ready skills. Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, provided this information in a written reply to the Lok Sabha today.

The Indian government aims to become a global skill hub, providing a skilled workforce for various domains. The Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) plans to establish 30 Skill India International Centres (SIICs) across different states to enhance India’s capabilities in providing a well-trained and competent workforce.

The G20 countries adopted policy priorities to address skill gaps globally, including mapping global skill gaps, strengthening national statistical data, and extending the coverage of the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Skills for Jobs Databases.

They also committed to developing an international reference classification of occupations by skill and qualification requirements to facilitate cross-country comparability and mutual recognition of skills and qualifications.

India supports the ILO and OECD and the current G20 Presidency (Brazil) in implementing these commitments. The Ministry of Labour & Employment is working with the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation (MoSPI) and Labour Bureau to adopt basic indicators in national surveys and extend coverage of ILO and OECD’s skills for jobs database. No specific funds have been earmarked by the MSDE in this regard.

During the G20 Education Ministers’ Meeting under India’s Presidency, G20 members agreed to encourage coordination and systematic assessment of AI evolution, including generative AI, which challenges educational systems but has potential for improvement. G20 leaders expressed support for educational institutions and teachers to keep pace with emerging trends and technological advances, including AI.
