moving from a demographic inertia to demographic dividend

180 million youth will enter India’s workforce in the next 15 years. With a massive skill deficit of 400 million people by 2022, we are facing a simultaneous opportunity and challenge. 

However, the current skilling ecosystem, while having made great progress in the last few years still has gaps in meeting expectations of students and industry alike, in areas like learning outcomes, placement linkages and retention in jobs, resulting in declining labor force participation and increasing unemployment.

The linear and siloed approach to designing programs, information asymmetry and financing priorities often result in limited scale of impact, quality of training, placement and retention in jobs, and low aspiration for the programs.
There is a need to review our approach and strengthen our fundamentals to ensure better and larger-scale outcomes.
