About us

Kaushalkar.com is the web-portal of Skill Development Entrepreneurship and Livelihood (SDEL) Department on 15 May 2017. The department was created under Government Order to provide skill and empower every stratum of the society for a better livelihood.

The government of Karnataka has set up the Skill Development, Entrepreneurship and Livelihood Department (SDEL) to help the youth to acquire necessary skills and expertise to increase their employability. Its aim is to undertake the functions of regulation, standardisation, promotion, implementation and monitoring of all skill development initiatives in the state.

Skills and knowledge are the driving forces of economic growth and social development for any country. Karnataka has always been known as a pioneer in innovations. This has enabled the state to bring to its foray a wide range of National and Multi-national corporates and organizations.

Over the years, it has been observed that there lies a huge gap between the demand of Skilled Labour by these corporates and organizations and the supply of the same.

The number of youth requiring vocational education from 2017 to 2030 is projected at 1.88 crores, comprising of 75 lakhs of the workforce existing in 2016 and 113 lakhs of fresh entrants. These two groups consist of informal workers in agriculture and non- agriculture, school dropouts, those completing secondary and higher secondary education and young homemakers (women). Those completing higher education and formal vocational training are excluded.

Guiding Principle


Internationally acceptable skilling for all to reap the maximum possible demographic dividend for rapid balanced sectoral growth and inclusive development, leading to decent employment opportunities for all.


Empower all individuals through improved skills, knowledge, and nationally and internationally recognised qualifications to gain access to decent work and gainful employment, and ensure the state’s competitiveness in the global market. SDEL aims to create opportunities for learning throughout the trainees’ life, with respect to his/her individuality.
