Slow passage to India

India needs VET training and lots of it next year.

In 2018 Peter Varghese’s pointed to Indian Government estimates that “an additional 120 million skilled workers will be required by 2022, fuelling demand for vocational training.”  He suggested governments should “position Australia as the foreign provider of choice for India’s technical and vocational education and training (TVET) system.”

The Commonwealth’s onto it. There’s a new MOU between the Department of Education, Skills and Employment with the Indian Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, in part to, “facilitate linkages between VET providers, and between industry and VET providers in both countries through targeted collaborative programmes, meetings, conferences and symposia.”

So that’s fixed.
