Educated , Yet Unemployed?
Fact: 62% of marginalised Indian students drop out of school before passing the 10th standard, lacking the basic education and vocational skills required to earn a livelihood.
By 2025, we will have 500 million jobs, which only 2% of formally trained students can fill in. This is because vocational training, leading to blue collared professions like plumbers, electricians, beauticians, tailors are for ‘losers’ who didn’t make it to college.
This is a real problem we have the WPP Foundation. We are the clients and we have budgets.Help us understand how we can change attitudes of 500 million Indians and make Vocational training sexy and aspirational to them.
