A first in India in the skilling space, this programme model will drive innovations in programme interventions and performance management systems. It will identify capable models in solving the challenges in the skilling ecosystem and bring a focus on aligning various outcomes. The project addresses a few key challenges which India faces today namely, skilling the huge population of youth, connecting them with sustainable jobs and improving the participation rate of women in the country which stands below 20% nationally.
