Skill development enables the socio-economic mobility of workers, also facilitates professional/educational progression. An outcomes-based approach is integral to the RPL that recognizes skills of workers irrespective of the methods/inputs utilized.
While there is an urgent need for skill-based training for jobs across the country, the absence of sufficient training avenues prevents the existing workforce to acquire skill training through formal channels. As a result, most of the skill acquisition takes place through informal channels such as family occupation, on-the-job training under master craftsman, etc. Reconciling these issues is at the core of RPL framework and our vision of conducting this survey program.
