National Employability Enhancement Mission abbreviated as “NEEM” is a scheme in which degree holder youths are trained to be skill full as per industry requirements, So that they can work perfectly in their respective fields. Nowadays, apprenticeship training is done to create a pool of skilled workforce. It is assumed as the best way to train the apprentices to be skilled manpower worldwide. India has also enormous potential to improve the availability of skilled workforce.
Youth unemployability is the growing challenge in India. The central government is aware of this and NEEM scheme is the first step taken by Indian government in this direction to resolve this problem. Degree holders are the powerful vehicle for improving employability. Because youths like to earn while learning. In NEEM scheme apprentices get an opportunity to do their best and get a on the job training in their own skillsets.
They get a chance to work on advanced machines and equipments to enhance their skills, experience and desirable attitude which will help them get attractive job with best remunerative packages or explore opportunities of self-employment. Youths will get a minimal wage of unskilled worker as stipend during NEEM scheme on the job training. But after working in this they can be the next dynamites for any related industry.
This mission is also helpful for the individuals who have either continued or discontinued degrees and also for the persons pursuing degree courses. Most of the youth get degree but have no practical knowledge on how to work in an industry. Those students are prepared for the upcoming job in various related industries. Students pursuing degree or diploma courses at any of the technical institutes approved by the Government can be part of NEEM scheme. Candidates from a non-technical stream or those having discontinued their studies after Class X are also eligible for on-job training to enhance their employability in the industry and other sectors
In this scheme facilitators formulate many programs for degree holder apprentices. Indian ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship will also help in this regard.
It will help unemployed youth to build skills through learning by doing on the job training at related industries. India is the land of great opportunities but in the absence of skilled workforce it looses a lot. By NEEM scheme the youth will be trained to be skillful, so that industries will hire them hand by hand. In this manner unemployability will be completely changed into great employability.
There are many youth who have a degree of Engineering, MBA, MCA but are unemployed. This scheme will train them how to work in an industry. The youth would spend their precious time in gaining redundant skills by this scheme.
In search of more & more candidates to get on the job training, the government revised the minimum and maximum age limits for trainees. The candidate seeking training under NEEM shall be at least 16 years of age and not more than 40 years of age.
Globalization and liberalization of economy has created a good bit of competition in the industry. Companies from any industry with a proven expertise in the field of manufacturing and / or services and is desirous of providing on the job training. In this regard any private educational organization with annual turnover of Rs 5 crores to 25 crores or even more is eligible for registration as the NEEM facilitators, provided they have the capacity to train at least 1000 candidates per year. Student will undergo on-the-job training (five days a week) with a Skill Knowledge Provider (SKP) as a ‘trainee’. No employer-employee relationship during NEEM scheme.
The mission of this scheme is that no more unemployed youth will wander here and there as an unskilled workforce and every youth will be skillful and hence they can get job easily.
