According to a survey conducted by TeamLease Services in collaboration with JustJobs Network, expanding the number of apprenticeships from the current 500,000 to 1 million annually will aid in reducing unemployment in the nation. A plan for extending the range of apprenticeships is included in the report. Rituparna Chakraborty, co-founder and executive director, TeamLease Services emphasised the importance of Apprenticeship programmes to fill the skill gaps in India. According to the survey, an apprentice transitions into the workforce more smoothly than a non-apprentice. Additionally, it claims that India would be able to create 10 million apprenticeships in the following ten years with the help of an employer-led training manual, a smoother governance framework, programmes for apprentice welfare, and a change in university methodology.
