Skills Versus Degree: What Would You Prefer?

Indian government has taken a very significant step in the direction of making skills development an essential part of the educational and training initiatives. The government has not only allowed private training and educational institutions to operate with full autonomy and liberty but it has also ensured that they provide qualitative and productive training and education.

The skills development in India has got a budgetary boost.  The budgetary allocation mentions that any institution or body can offer training and skills development courses in India. However, 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.

Perry4Law Organisation and Perry4Law’s Techno Legal Base (PTLB) welcome this effort of Indian government. At the same time we would like to emphasise that all monetary and non monetary benefits and incentives that can accrue to potential job seekers and self employed professional are possible only if they have undertaken adequate and proper skills development training and education.

If a candidate fails to clear the test as conducted by an authorised certification body, he would neither receive any monetary incentive nor would he be entitled to the certificate issued by such body.

We believe that candidates must concentrate more upon skills than degrees and diplomas that are merely academic in nature and devoid of any skills oriented trainings and courses.

After all if a person does not possess any degree or diploma but she is well skilled she may still be able to manage her own business or self employment venture. But in the absence of such crucial skills even the degree or diploma would fail to provide any employment cushion to her.
