digitalLEARNING|January 2018

To take care of huge skill gap and fulfill the ambitious skilling targets, the Government of Jharkhand is coming up with a comprehensive ‘State Skills Policy’ which aims at improving outcomes, expanding skill infrastructure with scale and speed, strengthening the skill development ecosystem, improving aspiration for skill development and incubating barefoot entrepreneurs, says Ravi Ranjan, Mission Director, Jharkhand Skill Development Mission Society.

What is the motto of Jharkhand Skill Development Mission Society (JSDMS)?

The motto is to be the engine of sustainable economic growth in the state by providing highly skilled and productive manpower to the industries and sustainable livelihood and entrepreneurial opportunities to the youth.

What is the process for conducting skill trainings and how is the selection of trainers and trainees made?

All skill development courses run by JSDMS must conform to the National Skill Qualification framework (NSQf) and Common Cost Norms. Training is conducted through Training Service Providers (TSPs), which can be private companies, NGos or government institutions.

Selection of TSP for executing skill development schemes does not involve any price discovery. It is an empanelment process through scheme specific RFP wherein the endeavour is to select Training Service Providers with proven track record. Target allocation to the TSP is done after proper assessment of its capacity to train.

Centre accreditation is through the SMART portal and associated processes of NSDC. Quality Assurance including centre infrastructure requirements, curriculum/ content, course duration, Train the Trainer and assessments is done through respective Sector Skill Councils (SSCs). Pay-out to TSPs is done as per payment milestones and per hour cost rates defined under Common Cost Norms.

Mobilisation of trainees is done by the TSP and selection of candidate is done after proper counselling, as per his aspiration and minimum qualification requirement of the respective trade of training. Support to the mobilisation process is also made by the state government with the help of district administration by conducting job fares.

What are the current schemes being undertaken by the mission society?
