National Skill Gap Study for High Growth Sectors

National Skill Gap Study for High Growth Sectors

The study aims at undertaking a comprehensive demand side analysis incorporating an in-depth assessment of select high priority sectors to arrive at the demand (and incremental demand) estimates with respect to sectors and key job roles. A dynamic framework for skill demand assessment that can be regularly updated to forecast skill needs in alignment with the emerging needs of the economy will also be developed under the study. Further, to maintain consistency and standardization, the study will provide methodology for conducting skill demand assessments at the sectoral and state level. The study aims at enhancing the responsiveness of the skill ecosystem at the national state level with the changing needs of the economy.
