The National Skill Development Corporation of India has recently partnered with BetterPlace in an effort to mend the gap for much-needed skills in the job industry, and will work together to offer solutions for demand aggregation, sourcing, training, certification, and placement for the country's blue collar workers.
The platform, SkillConnect, will work as a digital bridge to address the gap between demand and supply of blue-collar jobs across India. The idea is to make the platform demand driven so that the training institutes already know the job roles available in the market in a quantifiable manner and train the manpower accordingly.
Currently, the training institutes are skilling the candidates based on a fixed curriculum after which the candidates start looking for a job matching with their skills. This doesn’t result in high employment as the industry demand is constantly evolving.
“We have been looking for technology focused solution to address the challenges of getting reliable data that reflects the demand specifics, so that we can enhance placements by aligning our efforts with the demands of the industry. SkillConnect will help us by aggregating demand based on current hiring trends and future projections provide by employers,” Manish Kumar, CEO, NSDC said.
