Live Labs


Rajagiri Centre for Skill Development (RCSD) has been ennobled among other LIVE LABS of Rajagiri College of Social Sciences, for its salient and noteworthy endowment in rendering quality training for skilling India’s youth to contribute to the Government’s vision for making India the skill capital of the world. The live labs and socially relevant programmes of the college has always been an empowering arm for Rajagiri College of Social Sciences (RCSS).

Since its inception in 2015, RCSD have been associating with several stakeholders like DDU-GKY (Skill Training and Placement project of Ministry of Rural Development, Govt. of India),  NULM (Skill Training program of Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, Govt. of India), Kudumbashree(Kerala State Rural  Livelihood Mission, Govt. of Kerala), International Organisations and much more, for skilling rural youth who are  poor  and  provide  them  with  jobs  having  regular monthly wages at or above the minimum wages.

Trainings provided at the centre are mainly of two types.

  • Sustainable Livelihood through Placement linked Training: Skill trainings are provided to rural youth who are poor and they are given help to secure jobs having regular monthly wages or above the minimum wages.
  • Sustainable Livelihood through Entrepreneurship Development: Trainings are offered to enhance the knowledge and skills of prospective entrepreneurs through several classroom coaching and programs. The idea is to help new firms or ventures, nurture and perform better, in achieving their goals.

We believe, helping young people to develop skills makes economic sense. Low skills perpetuate poverty and inequality. Skill development can reduce unemployment, raise incomes, and improve standards of living.
