Project Description

 

India has the world’s largest youth population with nearly a half under 25 yrs. of age and two thirds under the age of 35 yrs. India is likely to have the world’s largest workforce by 2027, with a billion people aged between 15 to 64 years. By 2022, 63% of the population will be in the working-age group. Nearly 1.5M people join the job market every year while only 2% are adequately trained for available profiles. To mitigate this issue the government has taken mammoth skilling initiatives at different levels. 
Looking at the challenges faced by the government in their massive skilling mission, we propose a Skills Accelerator, which is an accelerated Future Skills training program based on a project-oriented methodology, and creation of real solutions for real problems, delivered in a physical center, to rural and semi-urban youth.Skills Accelerator provides the missing link between Inspiring students and Empowering them with technical curriculum.  Skills Accelerator enables students to develop the much-needed foundational skills, aligned with the 4th Industrial revolution (IR) and creates a pathway for technical jobs. In this case IBM’s Cognitive curriculum will be deployed after developing the foundational skills in the Skills Accelerator.
