Abstract: Skill development deals with the identification of skill gaps and the improvement of existing skills to enable people to achieve their goals. The youth need requisite competencies, and there is a huge gap between people's current expertise and the skills required by industry. The importance of vocational education, training, and skill development is expanding in today's fast-paced technological world. The present day demands a connection between youth skill-based education and meaningful employment. In this study we aim to understand the effectiveness of the skill development programmes in Himachal Pradesh from the perspective of trainees for which the opinion survey was conducted on 374 trainees. This study sheds light on all the facilities and equipment which are being provided to the trainees to provide them with the better opportunities of employment and growth. It was concluded from the study that trainees joined a skill development programme to improve job avenues and six-month training programme was noted to be the most popular amongst trainees. Instructors and syllabus were found to be the most important determinants of success. Most of the trainees believed that they will be placed after undergoing training. However, hostel and infrastructure facilities were pointed out as deterrents in skill development mission.
