Developing countries are faced with enormous pressure to make a successful transition from the pre-globalisation era into the new globalised economy structure. Despite the fact that India is on the fast track of development, the Government is faced with –
The challenge to enable majority of the Indians to participate in the benefits of growth and to contribute to that growth.
The current knowledge oriented economy requires a new generation of skilled people capable of competing at a larger, global platform. To do this the largely unskilled Indian labor force must have education and training that equips them for the new knowledge based labor market. One of the sources of the skilled workforce is the vocational education and training system. However, the current system is not being able to appropriately respond to the needs of the market.
