The Summit speakers will deliberate on the following:
- Skill Development of the new generation is a national need. It is the foundation stone for a Self-reliant India. What are the key actions that we need to take to seamlessly integrate formal education with vocational education?
- What do government, policymakers, industry, academia, and service providers do to reap the demographic dividend before it’s too late?
- How do we maximize the engagement with Industry to create an Industry led skilling ecosystem in our country? What role can the Government play in supporting it?
- Is Internationalisation of Skilling possible, do we need to consider International Colleges/ Universities/ Training Providers as potential ecosystem partners? If yes, how do we strengthen our engagements with them?
- Supporting Entrepreneurs and new businesses, how can Government and Industry collaborate to support them with the ease of doing business?
- How can Apprenticeship support the education to employability transition, does it help in enhancing the employability quotient?
- With national funding on skilling reaching minimal levels, how do we create a sustainable skilling ecosystem that has to move from a government-led push ecosystem to a market-led pull ecosystem?
