Skills development in India is on government’s priority list. After making it a part of the governmental policy, now a budget allocation of Rs 1,000 crore has been made in favour of skills development in India. The allocation includes a scheme that would grant monetary rewards to students that would pass the tests conducted by authorised certification bodies.
Perry4Law Organisation and Perry4Law’s Techno Legal Base (PTLB) welcome this move of Indian government. We believe that this would help in strengthening the skills development initiatives of both governmental and private institutions.
In furtherance of this laudable objective of Indian government, the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) has been asked to set the curriculum and standards for training in different skills.
The best part is that any institution or body can offer training and skills development courses. Once such training and skill development courses are over, the candidate have to clear a test conducted by authorised certification bodies. Upon successfully passing the test, the candidate will be given a certificate as well as a monetary reward of an average of Rs 10,000 per candidate.
At Perry4Law and PTLB we believe that this is the most crucial requirement as many private training institutions are providing sub standard training and education. Such training and education is counter productive and the requirement to clear the test at the end of the training would allow only the qualitative educational and training institutions to flourish.
The techno legal skills developments in India are of particular importance these days. Areas like cyber law, cyber security, cyber forensics, e-discovery, techno legal e-learning, etc require special attention.
Further, Indian government must also suitably amend the Apprenticeship Act and similar educational and skills development related legislations and regulations. The community colleges are also required to be encouraged to help build quality in skill development and making individuals employable.
At PTLB, Perry4Law’s Techno Legal ICT Training Centre (PTLITC) and Lifelong Learning Centre Of Perry4Law we provide world class techno legal education, training, skills development courses for Indian and international students. The best part is that we are providing these courses, trainings and education through distance learning and e-learning mode. Thus, students from around the world can enroll for our courses.
