National Trainers' Skills Report - 2017
This report is based on the evaluation of over 500 vocational trainers who participated in the Skill India Fellowship conducted by Aspiring Minds. These trainers were assessed by conducting an online test, followed by an interview with a highly qualified jury. The trainers were evaluated on three areas – teaching aptitude and pedagogy, information gathering and synthesis skills and domain knowledge in their respective sector.
Key insights from the report:
- The study unveils that only 27.73% trainers have the required professional skillset in their choice of industry. Construction sector has as low as 7.14% trainers with requisite professional skill level, while Tourism/Hospitality sector has the highest percentage of 71.43%.
- Lowest percent trainers with requisite skill proficiency observed in construction sector can be ascribed to their low performance in AMCAT modules – Instructor Aptitude Test, Information Gathering & Synthesis and Domain module.
- Upon application of individual benchmarks on AMCAT modules, we find that only 48% trainers clear the cut-off for cognitive skill, 51% for instructor aptitude and 59% for domain knowledge.
- Gender demographic analysis uncovers that females have higher skill competence and AMCAT scores.
