Employability Skills Development Training

The lack of proper guidance at an early stage is a major contributor to the issue of youth unemployment in the present day. Even obtaining an advanced degree cannot always prevent young people from experiencing joblessness. It is crucial to hone other essential skills required to succeed in the competitive world of today. Recognizing the significance of this issue, many educational institutions in India have initiated programs, projects, and activities for their students. Since 2012, YouthNet has successfully conducted Higher Education and Career Development programs in schools and colleges across Nagaland. As a next step, YouthNet is offering to conduct Employability Skills Development Training and Orientation on Employment in the Private Sector for the students in your Institution. This curriculum has been designed to provide students with critical skills that they will need to seek employment in various sectors. Furthermore, it will encourage them to seek out new avenues for information and knowledge, thereby increasing their employability in the current job market.
