About the Study:

The main objective of the study is to develop a robust and recurring framework for analysis and promotion of the pace and quality of education to work transition in India, especially to benefit the youth particularly women from the under‐privileged sections and those from smaller towns and rural areas. The specific objectives are:-

  • To scope out major attempts on education to work transition at the international level such as ILO‐STWT initiative and to analyze their relevance to the Indian conditions.
  • To make an inventory of the relevant data and instruments at the national/regional/state level that could be leveraged to produce a report series on the state of education to work transition in India
  • To develop a robust methodology for conducting diagnostic and analytical studies on “Education to work transition” rooted in the Indian reality, needs and opportunities which can be used for conducting a national level recurring study, annually or biannually.
  • To prepare State wise case ‐ studies on education to work transition for select 5 states namely, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Telangana, Odisha and Bihar This would also include recommendations/way forward for the states, so that there is a blue print that can be proposed and taken up by states.
  • To make recommendations on institutional arrangements to make this instrument/robust methodology a recurring feature such as the National HDRs, thereby promoting deep and informed policy discourse on inter‐ temporal and inter‐state/inter‐district trends in promotion of gender equitable education to work transition.

This School to Work Transition (SWT) study is based mainly on secondary sources of information. In addition, this exercise draws on the views and suggestions of various concerned stakeholders including the private sector and the employers. The Institute will be closely involved with other national and regional institutions. So, the additional information provided by the stakeholders will supplement the analysis based on secondary information.
