Bihar Skill Development Mission
The Government of Bihar constituted Bihar Skill Development Mission (BSDM) to empower the youth by providing them with requisite skills to fuel the growth of the State of Bihar. The primary roles of BSDM are to establish a wide network of training centres for the youth and to provide employment opportunities to the youth.
B-ABLE has imparted training under BSDM from the FY 2017-18 in IR-ITeS sector. Quality training is imparted and trainees are thoroughly assessed through collaborative mechanisms.
BSDM aims to provide an umbrella framework to all skilling activities being carried out within Bihar, to align them to common standards and link skilling with demand centres. In addition to laying down the objectives and expected activities, the document also identifies the overall ecosystem which will act as a vehicle to reach the expected outcomes. Skills development is the shared responsibility of the key stakeholder’s viz. Government of Bihar, the entire spectrum of corporate sector, community based organizations, Bihar Skill Development Mission (BSDM), Departments in Bihar implementing skill development endeavours, training providers, assessment and certification bodies and other stakeholders. The vision links skills development to improved employability and productivity in paving the way forward for inclusive growth in the State. The skill strategy is complemented by specific efforts to promote self-employment / entrepreneurship in order to create ample opportunities for the skilled workforce.
