This study on the private sector’s role in skills development was coordinated by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Istanbul International Center for Private Sector in Development (IICPSD) in cooperation with UNDP India.
The study focuses on 12 skills delivery initiatives led by the private sector and carried out to support the national skills mission of the Government of India. The objective of this study is to generate lessons from India’s experience in skilling, namely to identify and analyse impactful business models and their practices and innovations, to highlight challenges, and to provide insights on how the private sector could contribute even more to skills acquisition and employability.
The insights from this report speak to the management of skills initiatives in India and beyond. The experiences described and analysed will help support the mainstreaming of best practices in skills development as part of the global commitment to leave no one behind.
