India is the second largest populated country in the world essentially with a demographic profile of 550 million below the age of 25. Despite the huge population the necessity of a huge skilled & strong work force for the economical development of the country is mandatory. As declared by NSDC (National Skill Development Corporation, Government of India) 10 % of the workforce receives some kind of skill training out of which 2% is formal and 8% is informal which is far behind than US & UK where the same is 53% & 68% respectively . The government of India has been deriving strategies, policies and implementing them successfully from time to time to tackle the issue. The report card of NSDC (National Skill Development Corporation, Government of India) has revealed that out of 20, 67,899 trained candidates in various sectors, 4, 51,845 have been placed . At the current pace of the population growth, India will attain 1.3 billion by 2020 out of which 60% will be in working age group. Many organizations have been formulated to promote and monitor different skill sectors across the country with some functioning central wise and the others state wise. These organizations prepare the curriculum, syllabi and frame a system to organize and carry out the skill development courses, monitor the functioning and evaluate the outcome of the system. Candidates attending the training program are provided with incentives by the government and later on certified after successful completion and assessment of the skill training. Despite the actions, the development and availability of skilled man power is yet to grow by leaps and bounds This paper encapsulates the issues prevailing in the conduct and organization of skill development training programs and the recommendations that address the issues to overcome the difficulties faced by the organizers and participants. A detailed case study of the issues of a training program and its outcome were carried out at Olirum Erode skill academy, Erode District, Tamil Nadu. This organization is an NGO started in the year 2014 to organize and conduct skill development training programs for the rural youth of the district. The district is a textile hub now in shortage of skilled youth necessary for working in sectors such as tailoring, two wheeler and four wheeler service, textile sizing machines, sales, machine operation for small scale industries, baking and so on. This Organization has taken initiatives to train the people in various fields. The outcome of the study has been briefed and a recommendation to resolve the issues (confined only to the training program conducted by the district) through online mode has been emphasized and proposed, which would aid in the attainment of the training program objectives and outcomes. The role of government and academic institutions in promoting the online training course has been briefly discussed. This model can be a representative one and its success can be extended to other training programs across the country.
