Rudy launches Transnational Skill Standards in India

New Delhi, Apr 5 (UNI) Minister of State for Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Rajiv Pratap Rudy along with National Skill Development Corporation and UK-India Education and Research Initiatives today announced the launch of “Transnational Skill Standards” in India.
These standards in skill development are benchmarked to United Kingdom across 82 identified job roles.
During the event, two MoUs were signed between NSDC and Association of Colleges (UK) and NSDC and UK Awarding Organization City and Guilds and Pearsons Education to enable sharing of best practice, staff exchange and development of new models to increase employer engagement and investment in skills.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr Rudy said, “Standardisation of vocational education is crucial in bringing about a level in the efficiency of the skilled workforce. It is our endeavour that we benchmark the standards so as to support international mobility of Indian workforce and also prepare them to work in international companies establishing their operations in the country.”
“We have chosen UK standards to benchmark our Indian Skill standards since all the GCC countries recognise their skill certification,” Mr Rudy added.
British High Commissioner to India Sir Dominic Asquith KCMG said, “India and UK have been collaborating on skill development since a long time now and this is yet another effort to bring more quality in vocational education which will open more avenues for employment across countries for the youth.”
Some of the other emerging partnerships in this area are to support international mobility of Indian workforce, 15 Indian Sector Skill Councils (SSCs) have benchmarked standards of 82 job roles with the standards of 11 UK SSCs.
The Transnational Standards will highlight the gaps in Indian Standards against the UK standards. To cover the gaps, those intending to migrate, will undergo bridge training. The Further Education (FE) colleges of the United Kingdom will partner with Indian training providers to impart training on bridge courses. FE colleges will set up skill academies of excellences in the identified sectors in India.
