Hon’ble Minister for Labour and Skills.
Over the last few decades, skill professionals in Kerala are facing a global demand with their competitive skill-sets in various vocational and technical areas. However, there is a shift in current global market trends. In view of this global shifting of skill needs,there is a strong need
to develop strategies to meet the emerging opportunities and global skill requirements. Building upon the current strengths, the Department of Labour and Skills, Government of Kerala has embarked an ambitious and visionary initiative to transform Kerala into a global skills destination through various skill development initiatives.
India skills Kerala competition brings skilled youngsters across the state to compete in their chosen skills or specialization. The key objective of the competition is to inspire young people, teachers and parents to create awareness about vocational skills that can lead to global opportunities. India skills Kerala competitions will be conducted at district, zonal and State levels. The emerging winners from the state will be rewarded with cash prize and training will be imparted to compete at National level.
Skill competitions provide an opportunity to witness skills in action and this inspire young minds to pursue vocational career. I strongly believe that the youth of Kerala will excel in National and global skill arena.
