Conference I Panel Sessions I Exposition I VIRASAT | B2B | Networking Lunch and Dinner


The 13th edition of Global Skills Summit’s theme ‘Education to Employability - Making it Happen would focus on easing the education to employability transition for the youth of our country. After 34 years since the launch of the National Policy of Education in 1986, the new National Education Policy -2020 envisions to have a learning ecosystem that is second to none. Currently, Our nation is at the cusp of leveraging demographic dividend, disruptive technologies and changing World of Work. The Summit would look from the NEP lens and focus on how India can become the “Skill Capital of the World” keeping the UN Sustainable Development Goal 4 (SDG4) as an underpinning theme.

The NEP 2020 has set the goal of exposing at least 50% learners of the school and higher education systems to vocational education. The onus of “Making it happen” lies not only on the Government of India’s initiatives but also on the collaborative efforts of Industry, Academia, Philanthropies, Foundations, NGOs and Social Sector Organisations. A joint effort by all the stakeholders will prepare the youth of our country in making India rich before we get old.   Technology will play a key role in being the strongest enabler of this transition. One of the areas of key deliberation will be the emergence of competency based skilling, a national credit framework and the role of national curriculum framework. The E2E transition would need considerable support from National and International organisations in building capacities and gaining perspectives.   We look at employability as a critical skill to create sustainable livelihoods. The Summit will also see discussions on encouraging Entrepreneurship, Apprenticeship and Craftsmanship. It will bring together key stakeholders to deliberate upon strategies and share best practices that helps India in developing a 21st century skills ecosystem. There will be discussions on financing models of Indian TVET and a deep dive deliberation on how a robust financing system can truly support the Education to Employability Transition in India. The two day Summit will conclude with a celebration event “VIRASAT” The Heritage which honours and recognises the exquisite craft of the Indian artisans.   We welcome you all to be a part of this revolution and engage with more than 400 participants including policymakers, industry leaders, state and central government officials, training partners, representatives of multilateral & bilateral agencies, and students.
