    over 120,000 youth

The Indian Context

Every year around 15 million young boys and girls enter India's workforce - potentially an enormous pool of employable skilled talent - yet the country faces a huge skills gap. A major cause has been a lack of access to and focus on quality training in market relevant skills. Especially affected are young job-seekers from economically disadvantaged households in rural and semi-urban areas who make up the majority.

ITC's Contribution

Operating in its factory and agri-business catchments, ITC's Skilling & Vocational Training Programme provides them with much-needed opportunities to access high quality but affordable market-linked skills closer to their homes. Focusing on the most disadvantaged - economically and socially - it offers them a basket of market relevant skills in the manufacturing and services sectors, supported by employment linkages.

By providing these young citizens with industry-ready skills, the Programme enhances their employability in today's competitive business environment so that they can fulfil their aspirations for a brighter future.
