POTENTIAL OPPORTIUNITIES FOR SKILL DEVELOPMENT (Chennai & Trichy region) – ILFS project

IL & FS management approached Aaum to perform skills opportunity assessment in the districts which are closer to the multi-school skill development centre located at Chennai & Trichy region. The objectives were to know; industry requirements, candidate skill requirements and the willingness of candidate to pay for skill development. To meet these objectives, Aaum developed a structured framework consisting of various steps that were incorporated with each stage of the assessment.

IL&FS Skills Development Corporation (ISDC) is a joint venture between IL&FS and the NSDC (National Skill Development Corporation). It was established with an objective to build and manage 100 multi skill schools across India. The aim is to train around 2 million people over the next ten years in various skill sectors including textiles, engineering, construction, leather, auto and other service sectors.

To meet the core objectives of the study, an effective data collection strategy was designed which focused more on to find the demand and supply skills in the districts, to see if it would suit IL&FS. The assessment was done in eight districts of Tamil Nadu near Chennai and Trichy.  i.e. Chennai districts –  Tiruvallur, Kancheepuram, Tiruvanamalai and Chennai and Trichy districts – Nagapattinam, Dindugal, tanjavur and Trichy.  For the research about three education institutions, three employers, three panchayat presidents, two association/Institutions, ninety six school/college students, one NGO/federation and fifty four rural candidates were identified in each district. The survey candidates were profiled by using wealth indicators, which is an index, computed based on the assets of the respondents.
