Upskilling India is urgent to thrive

Let us begin by asking a question to ourselves! What or who is the center of all activities in a society, a nation, and the world? Is it not by an individual, for an individual? Yes! It is so because all actions are taken by an individual, for another or for self. This means that an individual is the nucleus of everything that happens or is done. And, therefore, the development of a society, a nation, and the world goes hand-in-hand with the development of an individual.

When a society/ nation/ world develops, this has a direct impact on the development of an individual and vice-versa. With the onset of the 21st century, the entire world has witnessed an era of intense transformation in all areas, whether it is education, global trade, economy, technology, or society. Recently, the covid-19 pandemic is also throwing up challenges for an individual to cope with its impacts. Naturally, for such times, a different skill–set is required that would enable an individual to cope and succeed in facing the challenges in real life, leading to his holistic progress.

As you know, the world is changing at a very rapid rate. The century we are living in right now is globally active, digitally transforming, collaboratively moving forward, and creatively progressing, which seeks competent human-resource and is quick in adapting to changes.

Developing and enhancing human skills and capabilities through education, learning, and meaningful work are key drivers of economic success, individual well-being, and societal cohesion. The global shift to a future of work is defined by an ever-expanding cohort of new technologies, by new sectors and markets, by global economic systems that are more interconnected than at any other point in history, and by information that travels fast and spreads wide. Yet the past decade of technological advancement has also brought about the looming possibility of mass job displacement, untenable skills shortages, and a competing claim to the unique nature of human intelligence now challenged by artificial intelligence. The coming decade will require purposeful leadership to arrive at a future of work that fulfills human potential and creates broadly shared prosperity. 

With this perspective in mind, if we see the current competitive scenario of our mass students, we find that on average more than 85% of students are not ready for this VUCA world (Volatile, Uncertain, Chaotic, and Ambiguous). And ultimately are going to be unable to contribute significantly to the progress & development of changing India. And so many minor issues are correlated with this major problem. These are the key minor issues, but not limited to:

  • Children have no idea about the possible changes going to happen in the future. So, there is very poor performance in adaptability with the century growth.
  • Children have no idea about the right skillsets required for thriving in the century.
  • Children have no idea how certain skills will impact their future and life overall.
  • Children lack the loop of exploring the skills that will help them to become future-savvy.
  • Children lack the loop of enhancing the skills that will help them to become future-savvy.
  • Children lack the loop of excelling in the skills that will help them to become future-savvy.
  • Children have a poor support system to hear their day-to-day issues regarding skill development.

India has a multi-layered formal education system with 250+ million school-going students. So, if we can upskill them rightly, they can be future-ready. And Chatshala is on such a mission!
