India is one of the youngest nations in the world, with more than 54% of the total population below 25 years of age and over 62% of the population in the working-age group (15-59 years). The countries population pyramid is expected to bulge across the 15–59 age group over the next decade. This demographic advantage is predicted to last only until 2040. India, therefore, has a very narrow time-frame to harness its demographic dividend and to overcome its skill shortages.
India currently faces a severe shortage of well-trained, skilled workers. It is estimated that only 2.3% of the workforce in India has undergone formal skill training as compared to 68% in the UK, 75% in Germany, 52% in the USA, 80% in Japan and 96% in South Korea. Large sections of the and educated workforce have little or no job skills, making them largely unemployable. Therefore, India must focus on scaling up skill training efforts to meet the demands of employers and drive economic growth.
We, at PNES, aim for the holistic development of the skill development and entrepreneurial ecosystem through backward and forward linkages, providing a suite of service to cater to all the needs of a skilling aspirant viz. skilling, upskilling, re-skilling, industry-relevant learning, counselling and placements.
PNES aims to augment the economy and societies across the geographical expanse of the nation by facilitating industry-relevant skill development, promoting self-reliance through re-learning and upskilling, promotion of social entrepreneurship, business development and growth while simultaneously helping tackle operational and administrative roadblocks.
PNES envisions to empower the Indian skill ecosystem with its output-oriented approach which will make the Indian youth productive, responsible, skillful and employable.
