Skill Council for Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 05 July 2016 15:31

A Dynamic and evolving organization with a National Vision and focus of skilling PwDs, The Skill Council for Persons with Disabilities (SCPwD) was created in October 2015 to fulfill the vision of the Honorable Prime Minister of India to offer Indian youth meaningful, industry relevant, skill based training. The Organization is promoted by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) under the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship and Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment. It targets skill development of People with Disabilities as per industry needs which can help them to be gainfully employed and contribute to India’s growing economy.

All initiatives taken by SCPwD empowering PwD (Persons with Disability), move towards formulating local and national level strategies for shaping the future of PwD in India. Towards this beginning, there are several projects which have been undertaken by the council since its inception. One among the recent is the collaboration with Glasgow Kelvin College, Scotland under UK-India Education and Research Institute (UKIERI) to benchmark standards between India and Scotland in the area of Disability.

We aspire for a successful endeavour for PwD by addressing the skilling gap, providing right tools and work environment to effectively perform their jobs. SCPwD is now poised for future growth, driven by a National Vision and outreach, with a philosophy that assigns primacy for PwD to enterprise in the Government sector, Industry and also individual accomplishments.
