NSDC is excited to partner with SkillSonics -which provides an industry-led public partnership vocational training model in India, adapted from the highly successful Swiss Vocational Education and Training system.
NSDC(National skill development Corporation) invested Rs 22.5 crores in SkillSonics yesterday. SkillSonics aims at addressing the severe shortage of skilled workmen across Indian industry, by creating a sustainable ecosystem that brings young Indians seeking a manufacturing vocation, the manufacturing industry and the Government together. Despite an expected need for 40 million machinists (workers skilled in handling machines) and mechanics in 2020, India produces less than 2 million skilled, vocationally trained workers every year.
SkillSonics courses, designed in collaboration with Swissmem (Swiss Mechanical and Electrical Manufacturing Industries) and SFIVET (Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training), adapt world-renowned Swiss content and pedagogy to the Indian context.
Courses are also offered to existing technicians that lead to continuous improvement of existing workforce. Have you ever dreamt of being mentored by one of the world’s preeminent authorities on growth investing? Well, that dream could become a reality if you get accepted into the newly launched BC-GSV Accelerator 2016.
Collaboration skills are currently in great demand to support the explosion of intra-sector and cross-sector working and partnerships. This workshop is experiential and there will be opportunities to learn structures and techniques and practice them as well as observing and learning from others. The two day programme enables us to cover addressing group dynamics and troubleshooting difficulties as well as each person to have facilitation practice with feedback and coaching from the facilitators.

Delhi, 25 June 2013: SkillSonics offers vocational courses designed in partnership with Swiss Vocational and Educational Training (VET) institutions, based on industry demand. Skillsonics provides an industry-led public partnership vocational training model in India, adapted from the highly successful Swiss Vocational Education and Training system and intends to train upto a million engineering technicians by 2022. The NSDC funding is an endorsement of this endeavour, and a significant step towards building this ecosystem through Public-Private Partnership (PPP) that will help in creating employment opportunities. This number constitutes only 2% of the total students in the age group 15-25, as compared to 80% in Europe and 60% in East Asian countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia. The apprentices spend only about 65% of the time doing course-work (mostly practical work and projects), leaving the remaining time to be spent on productive work on the shop floor or company-specific training.
How awesome would it be to have as mentor a man who predicted the rise of Google and Facebook, and has been hailed as one of the best stock pickers.
You will receive a facilitator’s toolkit to support your future meetings and workshops.

SkillSonics has secured Rs 22.5 crore funding (equity and loan) from the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) towards accelerating to its target of training and certifying up to a million engineering technicians by 2022. Built on a pilot project that commenced in 2009 they have trained over 600 apprentices till date and have plans to step up their presence to eight states, covering all the major engineering clusters across the country. The shortage of skilled labour both in terms of quantity and quality has reduced productivity and cut into the profitability of Indian enterprises. This helps the companies to benefit from immediate increase in productivity of entry-level technicians.

Most recently she was involved in setting up the Humanitarian Leadership Academy, a cross-sector collaborative initiative led by Save the Children. SkillSonics is built on a successful pilot project commenced in 2009 that trained over 600 apprentices till now, in collaboration with Swiss vocational training institutions. At the end of the course, the apprentices take exams for the Indian National Apprenticeship and Swissmem Certification. Shona provides facilitation for partnership formation, staff away days, strategy and business planning meetings as well as planning and engagement meetings . Her learning and development work goes back over 15 years and includes strategy development, facilitation and assessment of humanitarian training programmes in countries including Sri Lanka, Sudan, Pakistan, Chad and Haiti. SkillSonics plans to step up its presence to eight states, covering all the major engineering clusters across the country. The dual certification and rigorous assessment of demonstrated skills, teamwork ability and on-floor behavior greatly enhance the employability of these apprentices. Her Partnership Brokering work has led her to focus most recently on groups and how to develop skills to maximise collaboration. Shona has also provided facilitation skills training in the not for profit sector and the commercial sector.
The NSDC funding is an endorsement of this endeavour, and a significant step towards building this ecosystem through Public-Private Partnership (PPP) that will help in creating employment opportunities and skills augmentation for industry certified to Swiss International Standards. NSDC CEO & MD, Dilip Chenoy, welcomed SkillSonics as their partner in the mission to increase the strength of skilled workers in the Indian industry. Currently, only 5% of India’s workforce receives any sort of formal training as against, say, 70% in Germany or 95% in South Korea. We need to scale up our training offerings both in terms of quantity and quality to make youth employable. In this light, we are very happy to work with SkillSonics that has introduced industry-led Swiss-quality vocational training in India“.

Linus von Castelmur said, “Partnership between NSDC and SkillSonics is a step towards further strengthening Indo-Swiss cooperation. SkillSonics is building on the pilot to implement the Swiss Vocational and Educational Training (VET) model in India on a self-sustainable basis. The Swiss VET model is a proven model and I am sure it will reap benefits in the Indian context especially in view of the country’s growing need for skilled labor.” Speaking on the funding and partnership with NSDC, Mr. G P Chandra Kumar, Chairman and CEO, SkillSonics said, “We are very happy with the endorsement of our apprenticeship based, Industry Driven, Public Private partnership model by the NSDC. We believe that drastic steps must be taken to skill-up the Indian labour force, while enabling greater employment opportunities for the millions of educated unemployed youth. Moreover, there is a dire need to empower our industry to compete globally, which is possible only with internationally acceptable levels of skilled manpower. We are confident that we will be able to closely work with NSDC to scale up this ecosystem in India”.
SkillSonics is successfully adapting this model to India to create world-class technicians and globally competitive companies.
NSDC’s support will help us in further strengthening our ecosystem approach to skilling, where all the stakeholders including government, industry and academia come together to address India’s skills gap sustainably“, Mr. About National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) is a one of its kind, Public Private Partnership in India.
