Every skilled Indian professional is a changemaker: MoS Jayant Chaudhary

New Delhi: Shri Jayant Chaudhary, Minister of State (Independent Charge), Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE), felicitated 32 healthcare professionals yesterday for successfully completing the B1 level of German language training. To empower Indian nurses with global career opportunities, the training aims to equip the nurses with the necessary language skills for a successful career and livelihood in Germany. Shri Chaudhary, the German Ambassador Dr. Philipp Ackermann, Shri Atul Kumar Tiwari, Secretary MSDE, and Shri Ved Mani Tiwari, CEO, NSDC and MD, NSDC International, flagged off the bus taking the candidates to the airport and boosted their morale.

Speaking on the occasion, Shri Chaudhary said India has a great demographic dividend, providing a clear path towards transforming the country and the rural hinterland into a developed economy by 2047. There is also a growing skill gap in the world today; even in the contracting global economy, approximately 8.5 crore opportunities will be there in the world by 2030, he added. Shri Chaudhary also emphasized that these opportunities are to be grabbed by the aspiring young professionals of the country, which will decide the future path of the economy.

He also informed that in Germany alone, with their ageing population, there would be approximately 18 lakh job opportunities available for suitable candidates. The right approach should be taken to fill these positions in a focused manner, and Skill India’s International’s strong connect with the industry can fulfil this gap, Shri Chaudhury added.

He highlighted further the successful placement of over 58,000 skilled Indians in various countries as part of India’s mission to become a global skilling powerhouse. He praised the efforts of MSDE and NSDC International in providing high-quality training to Indian youth aiming for overseas employment. He congratulated the successful candidates and personally handed them their placement offers, inspiring confidence and enthusiasm for their future roles.

All 32 candidates cleared the B1 German Language Training through TELC. They will be placed with the leading hospitals and employers, earning between 2300 and 2700 Euros per month (over Rs. 2 lakh), with B2 training included. After completing B2 in Germany, their salary will increase to approximately Rs. 3 to 4 lakh.

Dr. Philipp Ackermann praised the skilling ecosystem of India and hoped this would be the start of many other such opportunities. The growing skill gap in Germany, particularly in the healthcare sector, poses a significant challenge, and a need was felt to find a solution to offer, which is structured migration. This not only caters to the skill gap but also offers the quality expected to meet the demands of the healthcare industry, he added. Dr. Ackermann also said that this is where India’s education system, robust skilling infrastructure, and extensive training programs are helping bridge the gap. He lauded the efforts of NSDC International in preparing the young workforce for Germany in just two months.

The two- to three-month comprehensive residential training program was imparted to all the candidates under the Skill India International initiative who have completed their B.Sc. Nursing or the General Nursing and Midwifery (GNM) programs. Delivered by professional German native trainers, the program ensures that participants receive top-notch language education. This development reaffirms the Government’s commitment to making India the global hub for skilled talent and outlines the ambitious strategies under the Skill India Mission.

NSDC, under the aegis of the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, through its wholly-owned subsidiary NSDC International has made significant progress in positioning India as a dependable source of skilled workers.

NSDC International had partnered with Auxila Academy, a Takt Group company, for the German language training program and was instrumental in helping them find the right career opportunities in Germany. This initiative not only opens up lucrative career opportunities for Indian nurses but also addresses the growing demand for skilled nursing professionals in Germany. Under the Skill India International Initiative there is a strong commitment to enhance the skills and employability of Indian youth, paving the way for their success on the global stage.
