Skill Development

Demographic dividend, development indicators and market potential have placed India in a formidable position in the 21st century's financial landscape. By the year 2020, the country is poised to become a major human resource hub of the world, even ahead of many developed nations of the present. Kerala realizes this responsibility and it currently has projects like State Skill Development to equip its young population with skills in cutting-edge sectors in order to effectively address the unemployment problems in the State. The project combines both preventive (Additional Skill Acquisition Programme - ASAP) and curative approaches (Additional Skill Enhancement Programme). 


The Government of Kerala with the objective of skilling the young workforce of Kerala and elevating their skills to global standards for employment in India and abroad has also set up an academy - Kerala Academy for Skills Excellence (KASE), a non-profit company as the nodal agency for facilitating and coordinating various skill development initiatives of the State.
