Skill Development News Digest -311215


It’s the last fortnight of the year and time to catch up with all that has been happening on the skilling and training scene in India. While there are many headlines that grab our attention, of particular interest are the insights from Moore and Prillaman on workforce training, labour and gender. To quote, “ …women participate in the labour force at strikingly lower rates than men: only 23% of women aged 18-35 are active members of the labour force, compared to 83% of men. And women with secondary education are even less active, with only 15% of these women in the labour force. By contrast, illiterate and primary educated women participate in the labour force at almost twice that rate.” Let’s move on to other news:
