Dr P S Vijayalakshmi

Abstract :

Job providers expect certain skills which are required for the job, but the job seekers are lacking the required skills. Training and development makes remarkable difference in the ability to meet out competitive standards. To fill up the gap, Skill Development Programmes [SDP], Entrepreneurship Development Programme [EDP] and Management Development Programme [MDP] are being conducted by various agencies such as centrally sponsored, state sponsored, NGOs and banks. Entrepreneurship Development Programmes try to fulfil the gap in the labour market. Persons who undergo Skill Development Training have two options. Either they go for labour market as a skilled labour and earn wages or they can start a new enterprise. At present Entrepreneurship Development Programmes are conducted through–out India.The various types of Entrepreneurship Development Programmes such as Product Development EDP’s, Skill Development EDP’s and Management Development EDP’s are responsible for making better labour force.An attempt has been made in this paper to analyse the socio economic factors of participants, personal attitude, satisfactory level, and opinion about the Training Institutes.The survey has been conducted in three institutes namely, Small Industries Products Promotional Organisation (SIPPO), Madurai, Indian Overseas Bank–Rural Self Employment Training Institute (RSETI) and Seshasayee Institute of Technology (SIT), Tiruchirappalli. The primary data has been collected from 122 respondents. This paper also tries to find out whether these programmes are really beneficial to the participants or not.
