About this book

This book explores how the Indian education and training system prepares young people for the world of work and for the requirements of the employment market – because India is a leading industrialised nation with a very young population and a high demand for a skilled workforce. Indian experts write from a course-specific perspective, offering a comprehensive picture of educational policy, curriculum design and cultural characteristics. The virtual absence of a formalised system of vocational training in India underlines the importance of this research.

Reviews

“One may find the book an interesting and easy reading for the professional academicians as well as general public. The central message that the book carries is that the working of the economic system and public institutions finally determines our success in filling up the skill gaps and increasing employability in the Indian economy.” (Rajendra Prasad Mamgain, Journal of Educational Planning and Administration, Vol. 22 (2), July, 2019)
“This book is successful in the sense that it provides most recent data and statistical analysis of India’s economic and educational indicators. I recommend it to researchers, authors, policy makers and university graduates who are interested in exploring how the idea of lifelong learning and a knowledge economy, especially the connection between work and learning, is understood in India … .” (Kapil Dev Regmi, International Review of Education, October, 2017)
