NSQF For Contract Jobs

State Government will have to make NSQF Certification as a mandatory criterion for hiring contractual workforce and as part of contracts being awarded.

With an increasing focus of the Union Government on quality skill training to ensure employability of the youth, such Certification, while recruiting workforce is being made mandatory .
 
Praveen Kumar, Secretary Skill Development and Entrepreneurship has brought to the notice of the State Government in this regard and advised to make necessary arrangements.

The National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF), a competency-based Framework was notified by the Union Government with an objective of mapping the learning outcome of training  programs and ensuring quality in skilling.

National Skill Development Agency (NSDA) is the Nodal Agency for anchoring and implementation of NSQF. In the Union Budget of 2020, Minister Finance has laid stress on infrastructure-focused Skill Development opportunities.

She said that there exists a huge demand for teachers, nurses, para-medical staff and care-givers abroad. However, their skill sets, many a time, do not match the employer's standards and therefore need to be improved NSQF Certification level

Rs.3000 Crore has been allocated for Skill Development and more funds are likely to pumped in looking at the growing requirement for providing skilling, both by the Centre and States.

In terms of NSQF notification implementation schedule “the recruitment rules of the Government of India and the Public Sector Enterprises of the Union Government shall be amended to define eligibility criteria for all positions in terms of NSQF Levels” and also “State Government shall be encouraged to amend their recruitment rules as well as those of their Public Sector Enterprises to define eligibility criteria for all positions in terms of NSQF Levels”, pointed out Mr.Kumar.

Currently more than 4000 Qualification Packs catering to different job roles across sectors have been approved and youth have been trained in tehm. Key Central Ministries like Ministry of Rural Development, Minority Affairs, Urban Development,
Social Justice and others have already started using NSQF complaint job roles in their skill development program for training.

It is therefore, pertinent to see that by Union and State Governments make NSQF certification as a mandatory criterion for hiring contractual workforce and as part of contracts being awarded. A suitable trajectory for percentage of works to the NSQF certified workers may be specified so that in a period of maximum 5 years, all workers are required to be certified.

Accordingly suitable guidelines are to be issued by the State Government to recruit NSQF trained candidates across various requirements in the State Government, said Secretary Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.
