Problems Encountered:

1. Skill Gap Analysis :

It is required to find the exact skill requirements from the industries and employers. Analysis of such surveys would help in designing course structures of the training programs and thus standardized course curriculum or training delivery systems can be developed. In present scenario there is no such systematic and regular surveys are defined by any government body neither by the state government nor by the central government.

2. Disinterest of Industries :

Any model to be successful needs a lot of support from different stakeholders. Since there is limited buy-in from the corporate sector, the progress of skill initiatives is slow.

3. Mobilisation :

The outlook of people associated with skill development is still very traditional. The enrolment of the students for vocational education and training has become an extremely challenging task.

4. Retention of trainees :

Retention of trainees during course period is a huge challenge. Various extra curricular activities should be organize to connect trainees with the university. Time to time parents counselling should also be organize.

5. Resources required :

University has almost all the resources and resource persons for Skill development and also has almost all required affiliation and approvals of respective regulatory bodies.
