After successfully placing more than 28,000 skilled workers across the globe, NSDC International, a 100% subsidiary of National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) organized a felicitation ceremony for a batch 30 candidates today to become a part of the opportunities that awaits Indian talent in distant shores. Belonging to various parts of the country, the candidates have received joining letters for different job roles including painter, general helper, pipe fitter, spray painter, and welder. These candidates will be joining group companies of DP World.
In the coming five years, the International Workforce Mobility (IWM) market opportunity for India is estimated to be 3.6 million. With this, NSDC is working towards improving avenues for skill harmonization, language, and vocational training along with creating a larger pipeline of employable talent. To ensure that right talent is chosen to meet the skill demand of global economies, a strict selection process has been undertaken by the employer involving multiple rounds of interviews, tests including English language competence and trade testing.
On the occasion, Mr. Ved Mani Tiwari, CEO, NSDC, and MD, NSDC International, said, “I am proud that today we have the platform and the partnerships to extend aspirational employment opportunities and entrepreneurship pathways to young, talented minds. Congratulations to the 30 candidates who passed our rigorous selection process and are now broadening their horizons and are embarking on their journey to join DP World group companies. We are a nation of high caliber, and this achievement is a testament to that. It has the potential to fill the skill gap in global economies. At NSDC International, we take pride in facilitating job opportunities for skilled individuals worldwide, and our goal remains making India the Skill Hub of the World.”
Shubhransh Srivastav, Director Corporate Affairs, DP World SCO present in the felicitation said “This initiative is part of DP World’s continuous commitment to contribute to the development of people in the communities it operates in. This joint effort of NSDC and DP World in curating a vibrant yet transparent placement programme for candidates of Skill India International Centres from India to the United Arab Emirates premised on fully paid training with zero cost to candidates has seen positive traction. This felicitation ceremony for candidates embarking to the UAE is ample testimony to the success of the programme and of the future employment prospects that this initiative presents to the skilled youth of the country.”
To understand the employment potential overseas a study of 16 high potential countries – Saudi Arabia, UAE, USA, Canada, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, Australia, Germany, Japan, UK, Singapore, Malaysia, Sweden, and Romania which form the countries that see substantial migration from India was conducted by NSDCI. A five yearly potential of around 39 lakh Indian workforce has been identified. And based on the study the following 10 sectors have been identified as high priority sector- Construction, Healthcare- Personal Care & Social Care, Hospitality & Tourism Management, Energy (Oil & Gas & Renewables), Education (Teachers), Shipping and Logistics, IT & Digital, Retail including Bike riders, Manufacturing and Media and Entertainment.
Through NSDC International, active engagements are ongoing in global markets to accelerate the skills of the future. Benchmarking of skill qualifications in GCC countries through government-to-government (G2G) and business-to-business (B2B) workforce mobility collaborations are enabling several successful pathways for India’s youth and progress has also been made in developing partnerships with several other countries. To make sure that the youth take full advantage of this world of opportunities, creating a future-ready workforce is imperative as it holds the key to an economically connected world. At this juncture, reimagining the current approach, strong partnerships and skill development initiatives concentrated on international mobility will prepare India’s youth for the future of work and revitalize the world economy.
