Introduction to Vocational Courses
India has the world’s largest youth population. There is a huge shortage of skilled workforce in India which has led to unemployment. The government has launched the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) and Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Grameen Kaushalya Yojana (DDU-GKY) to address this issue. Vocational education is extremely important in narrowing the gap between supply and demand of skilled manpower. It serves as a great alternative for those who want to learn and cannot afford to invest three or four years to earn a university degree. Academic education combined with vocational training will lay the perfect foundation for a better future.
