The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) is an association of Indian businesses which works to create an environment conducive to the growth of industry in the country. CII works closely with Government on policy issues, interfacing with thought leaders, and enhancing efficiency, competitiveness and business opportunities for industry through a range of specialized services and strategic global linkages.
Logistics Skills council:
CII along with National Skill Development Corporation, would set up a Logistics Sector Skill council to address these issues through a structured skill development program with the following objectives.
Through this initiative, over 40 lakh logistics workers are to be trained and certified by the SSC in the next ten years.
CII Institute of Logistics (CIL) was established in 2004 by the Confederation of Indian Industry as a Center of Excellence in Logistics and Supply Chain.
At CII Institute of Logistics we create a platform for the Industry to gain more insights into the emerging trends, industry specific problems of national importance and global best practices in logistics & supply chain management. We enable the industry to cut down the transaction cost, increase efficiency, and enhance profitability and enable to sensitize and bring solutions to macro level issues.
The National Skill Development Corporation, (NSDC) is a one of its kind, Public Private Partnership in India, under the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship. It aims to promote skill development by catalyzing creation of large, quality, for-profit vocational institutions.
NSDC provides funding to build scalable, for-profit vocational training initiatives. Its mandate is also to enable support systems such as quality assurance, information systems and train the trainer academies either directly or through partnerships. NSDC acts as a catalyst in skill development by providing funding to enterprises, companies and organisations that provide skill training. It will also develop appropriate models to enhance, support and coordinate private sector initiatives. The differentiated focus for the 21 sectors under NSDC’s purview and its understanding of their viability will make every sector attractive to private investment.
Sector Skill Councils are set up as autonomous industry-led bodies by NSDC. They create Occupational Standards and Qualification bodies, develop competency framework, conduct Train the Trainer Programs, conduct skill gap studies and Assess and Certify trainees on the curriculum aligned to National Occupational Standards developed by them.
Till date, the NSDC Board has approved proposals for 38 Sector Skill Councils. There are approximately 450 Corporate Representatives in the Governing Councils of these SSCs.
Recognition of prior learning is a program which focuses in identifying the prevailing skill gaps in different logistics entry level job roles in sub sectors and bridge the gap by conducting orientation programs.
RPL can also be customized to company training requirements and recognize the skills possessed by the individual employees in entry level job roles with a minimum experience of 1 year.
Post orientation LSC designates a third party assessment agency to assess the employees based on orientation and there by certify the employee as recognized.
RPL focuses on upskilling the existing employees, there by recognizing the existing skilled work force as there is no formalized upskilling and certification program in the past.
RPL creates a win -win situation for both the employers and employees by recognizing the employees and enabling certified workforce for employers there by increasing the productivity on the whole.

What is NOS?
NOSs – National Occupational Standards (NOSs) specify the standard of performance, knowledge and understanding when carrying out a particular activity in the workplace. Each NOS defines one key function in a job role. Example: For a Sales Associate, one of the NOS would be to 'To help customers choose right products'
What is a QP?
QPs – A set of NOSs, aligned to a job role, called Qualification Packs (QPs), would be available for every job role in each industry sector. These drive both the creation of curriculum, and assessments. These job roles would be at various proficiency levels, and aligned to the NSQF. Example would be Qualification Pack of a Sales Associate
What is the process of assessment and run through mock assessment questions
SSC would allocate an Assessment Agency and Assessment Date to a batch within 5 days of its start. On the scheduled day, a certified Assessor would carry out the assessment against the relevant QP-NOS and report back the results as well as the feedback obtained from the candidates. The format for capturing the feedback of the candidates is present in the Process Manual for the Scheme.
