National Skill Development Corporation gets international recognition

Ministry of skill development and entrepreneurship’s training institute National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) that trains youngsters in almost all districts of India to make them employable, has been endorsed by the Indian National Commission for Cooperation with UNESCO as a member of the UNEVOC network.

The UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre is one of seven UNESCO institutes working in education located at the United Nations Campus in Bonn in Germany. The organization has been scouting for organizations that it can work with for the last few years. It finally zeroed in on NSDC and gave it full endorsement last week, official sources said.

UNESCO-UNEVOC works towards developing and strengthening technical and vocational training and undertakes its activities through a global network of institutions imparting skill education with a mandate to provide sustainable education.

This endorsement, said top government officials, will increase the engagement with Indian authorities and international experts to bring best ideas and technology related to skilling in India.
