Sector Skill Councils are set up as autonomous industry-led bodies by NSDC. They create Occupational Standards and Qualification bodies, develop competency framework, conduct Train the Trainer Programs, conduct skill gap studies and Assess and Certify trainees on the curriculum aligned to National Occupational Standards developed by them.
There are currently 38 Sector Skill Councils are operational. There are over 600 Corporate Representatives in the Governing Councils of these SSCs.
Since its inception, one of the major pillars of NSDC’s strength are Sector Skill Councils (SSCs), which play a vital role in bridging the gap between what the industry demands and what the skilling requirements ought to be.
The National Occupational Standard is one of the most significant contributions of NSDC to India’s skilling ecosystem – something that was made possible by the SSCs, which are national partnership organizations that bring together all the stakeholders – industry, labour and the academia.
The SSCs operate as an autonomous body and could be registered as a Section 8 Company, or a Society. NSDC is mandated to initiate and incubate SSCs with initial seed funding to facilitate their growth and enable them to achieve self-sustainability in a time bound manner.
The National Policy on Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, 2015 laid out Skill India Mission, and envisaged the creation of Sector Skill Councils (SSCs) by NSDC. Priority sectors have been identified based on the skill gap analysis. The SSCs have been mandated with the following functions:
- Identification of skill development needs including preparing a catalogue of types of skills, range and depth of skills to facilitate individuals to choose from them.
- Development of a sector skill development plan and maintaining skill inventory.
- Determining skills/competency standards and qualifications and getting them notified as per NSQF.
- Standardization of affiliation, accreditation, examination and certification process in accordance with NSQF as determined by NSQC.
- May also conduct skill-based assessment and certification for QP /NOS aligned training programmes.
- Participation in the setting up of affiliation, accreditation, examination and certification norms for their respective sectors.
- Plan and facilitate the execution of Training of Trainers along with NSDC and states.
- Promotion of academies of excellence.
- Paying particular attention to the skilling needs of ST/SC, differently-abled and minority groups.
- Ensuring that the persons trained and skilled in accordance with the norms laid down are assured of employment at decent wages.
