Journey to World Skills 2019
The selection of Team India for World Skills 2019 began in January 2018, with the rollout of a scheme on India Skills competitions. More than 22 states collaborated and organised close to 500 district and state- level competitions between March and April 2018. The winners at these events, competed at four regional competitions organised at Jaipur, Lucknow, Bangalore and Bhubaneswar. The regional competition winners further competed at the National Competition in October 2018 at Aerocity Grounds in Delhi.
Since then, the selected candidates have been undergoing rigorous training and have also participated in international competitions in order to hone their skills and gain the required experience. Most competitors have also received training at international centers which has significantly enhanced their skills.
The Team India included participants from all over the country, including 6 from the North Eastern region. Seventy-seven of them hail from Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities and can speak 10 different languages. Most of these competitors come from a very humble background, with 35 percent have their parents either employed in the agriculture sector or are working as daily wage earners.
According to Dr Mahendra Nath Pandey, Minister for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, "Through World Skills Competition, we aim to provide opportunities to the youth in our country to compete with, and learn from, their peers across the globe. Such initiatives also help us benchmark our skills to the international standards and will improve the overall quality of vocational training in India. I congratulate each one of them for their journey so far and wish them the very best for all their future endeavours. I believe they will inspire future competitors and all those who aspire to excel in their careers through vocational training."
