    Professional Education Improvement Project

    The Technical/Engineering Education Quality Improvement Project is a project of World Bank for India which supports the production of high quality technical professionals through reforms in the technical/engineering education system in order to raise productivity and competitiveness of the Indian economy. There are two project components.


    • The first component, Institutional Development, comprises three sub-components: 1) promoting academic excellence; 2) networking institutions for quality enhancement and resource sharing; and 3) enhancing quality and reach of services to the community and the economy. Under this component, qualifying institutions, based on their capabilities, will be first selected either as lead institutions or as network institutions, and then be required to compete through specific sub-projects.

    • The second component, System Management Capacity Improvement, supports 1) developing a modern management style through training of policy planners, managers, and administrators from the central and participating state governments. 2) conducting studies at the State and national levels, the findings of which would be used for improving policy and decisionmaking processes, and implementing reforms; 3) enhancing performance and the quality and efficiency of State audits of institutions; and 4) establishing structures and facilities for program management at the central and State levels.
    Planning Commission has assessed that the country will require 50 crore trained individuals by 2022. The process of establishing a mission for training youth between 14 and 25 years of age is underway. In this regard the WB Review Mission recognised Madhya Pradesh as the best state.

    Recently a two-day meeting of the Joint Review Mission of the World Bank (WB)-aided Professional Education Improvement Project was held and was attended by representatives of Madhya Pradesh, Haryana, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Bihar, Uttarakhand, Lakshadweep, Jammu and Kashmir.

    As many as 28 industrial training institutes of the state have been selected for being developed as centres of excellence. For this, Rs 73 crore were sanctioned.The Project is on for the past two years.

    The specific mandate of the NSDC is to stimulate and co-ordinate private sector initiatives in the skill development sector, with a view to realising the core vision of the Prime Minister’s Skill Development Council.
    </BLOCKQUOTE>
    The Vision:


    • The vision outlined by the Prime Minister’s Council calls for serious up-scaling of the skill development targets.

    • Hence, as against 40 million people currently, who have received any kind of formal or non-formal training, the vision envisages creation of a pool of 500 million skilled people by 2022.

    • This translates into a rapid escalation of the training and skill development capacity, and, a quantum leap in the number of trades, wherein training is currently being imparted through existing institutes.

    • The vision also emphasis, a high degree of inclusivity, which shall effectively deal with the current, divides prevailing in our society, such as gender, rural and urban, organized and un-organized employment, and, traditional and contemporary work places.

    • In order to achieve the mission outlined in the vision, it has become imperative for Government to engage with the private sector, through long term partnerships to achieve synergy in delivery and implementation.

    • The NSDC, therefore, is the important component of the overall roadmap for radically transforming India’s skill landscape.

    • Typical ‘market failure’ segments, comprising backward areas, under-privileged sections of the society and non-organized sectors occupy primacy in NSDC agenda.
    Skill Development Programmes in India:


    • Skill development programmes are being run by 17 Ministries/Departments in the Government of India. Large budgetary outlays are being earmarked for these programmes.
    Other Functions:


    • It will make periodic as well as an annual report of its plans and activities and put them inthe public domain.

    • There may also be a National Skill Development Trust which can receive funds to be managed by the National Skill Development Corporation.

    • The corporation/trust will be a flexible institutional arrangement to be able to deliver on jobs required by the market, related to its skill deficit, through training programmes operated or partnered by it.
