Are current skill development initiatives addressing the private sector’s demand for adequately trained workers?
Over the last two decades, India has leveraged the forces of globalization to generate high levels of economic growth, but sustaining this growth is an ongoing challenge.

The JustJobs Network, with support from The Hearth Education Advisors, presented the findings of its innovative research that examines India’s complex landscape of skills training and assesses whether current models will help realize the demand for skilled workers.
