Abstract

Today, the world and India need a skilled workforce. India can become the global sourcing hub for skilled employees. If we have to promote the development of our country then our mission has to be ‘skill development’ and ‘Skilled India. The planning Commission of India has estimated that around 500 million skilled persons will be required by 2022, while the current capacity of the skill development program is 3.1 million. 11th Five year Plan has laid the strong foundation for the skill development initiative, which aims for faster, more inclusive and environmentally sustainable growth. National Knowledge Commission (NKC) (2009) reported the need to create a “National Skill Development Fund” imposing a universal skill development obligation on industry to invest in skill development of SCs/STs/OBCs/Minorities/Other candidates from Below Poverty Line families as their contribution to affirmative action combined with matching Government contribution.
Leather Good Workers (LGW) are illiterate or semiliterate. They learned the leather goods making skills form their ancestors. They don’t know the visualization skills for new goods development and used acquired skills for making new type of leathers goods. The mixed strategy was adopted for development of training programme. Training package include print material for knowledge components and videos for seeing the required skills. Three day training programme was organised. The learners were asked to study the print material, followed by viewing the videos along with discussions with the experts then doing an activity under supervision of the experts. // Paper ID 174
