PROJECT SCOPE &BRIEF Purpose: Aggregate the efforts of the Sports sector for employable workforce development by inviting participation, engagement and approval of the stakeholders. Coordinating with the Government, Federations, Universities, Colleges, Schools and Industry for support to realize existing synergies and build new ones through strong and sustainable partnerships. 2. Set workforce benchmarks: a. To determine the skills benchmarks for the workforce – both existing and new entrant, not by regulation but by empowerment through training. b. Create standardized curriculums and benchmarks for training. c. Develop career pathways and in-service training manual for existing workforce: Provide clear career opportunities and linked benefits across the sports sector thereby reducing attrition from the sector. 3. Institutional Capacity Building of the existing training providers: The natural progression of most sports persons at school level in India, is to continue into higher education such as ‘Bachelors in physical education- (B.PEd)’, which only allows them to become sports/Physical Education teachers in schools etc. There are 783 such registered institutions offering above mentioned courses and supplying 39150 B.PEd. degree holders. However only 15% of these continue into sports as a career for the lack of facility of higher learning, global exposure and availability of options other than teaching physical education at primary or secondary levels. And only a miniscule few are aware of how to churn out support personnel for the real life tuning up of skills requirement of world-class professional training in sports and allied activities. They are not able to do so, for lack of exposure to opportunities and relevant knowledge and this requirement of skilled personnel being latent. Institutional capacity building of these institutes in a structured manner can have far reaching consequences in kick-starting the sports sector in India. All the stakeholders should take responsibility for shaping the curriculum for providing their resources. Sports, Physical Education, Fitness and Leisure Skill Council (SPEFL-SC) will complement the existing education system for the Sports and Physical Education in meeting the entire value chain’s requirements of appropriately trained manpower in quantity and quality across all levels on a sustained and evolving basis. 4 1.

However, prior to starting a full-fledged operation, SSC would be rolled out on a pilot basis to ascertain proof of concept and understand actual ground reality. A Detailed Project Report (DPR) will be prepared by SSC once it has established the proof of concept at the end of third year. Current scenario: It may already be apparent that India is moving out of the shadows and beginning to take noticeable steps into the sports arena. However there is an absence of support system in sports i.e. right kind of coaches, academy, event managers, sports goods manufacturers, infrastructure managers and developers, administrators, sports scientist, physiotherapists, sponsorship experts and so on. Hence there is a demand of sports experts from outside India. And on the other hand 78% of the children who join school show some interest and often, good aptitude for one sport or the other than anything else but they don’t pursue their passion because of lack of encouragement and lack of career opportunities. In India, there will be 1.33 million new sports persons by 2017 which implies India will require a staggering 0.3 Million sports personnel (support staff) in sports sector. At present most of this demand is fulfilled by foreign experts due to lack of quality sports education and hence non availability of employable human resource in India. It is now time to revive sports education with a holistic approach of training, and fulfill the demand of skilled personnel and provide opportunities to youth by giving them right direction and orientation. Challenge areas are the lack of professional training or evaluation and therefore, lower skills and no acceptability for workforce. Also, most courses are outdated and need to be redesigned. There is lack of linkage with the industry. This results in poor quality, and most importantly, huge attrition rates because the typical sports enthusiast does not see a clearly mapped career linked with his/her personal growth through the right kind of training. Though there are courses being offered through various physical education and sports institutions across diploma, bachelors/ masters/PhD. but these courses do not cover skill development relating to the sector need and there is a disconnect between requirement of industry, training provided and skills available. It is important that important stakeholders in the industry and experts in India should work towards setting up Occupational Standards, Qualification Framework for SPEFL. There is a need of institutions which provide specialized education in SPEFL which is an opportunity for educational institutes to develop specialized degree, diploma courses and training programmes for fulfilling this latent demand. As SPEFL-SC will be promoted by engaging with the employers the curriculum will be updated regularly based on the sector needs which will also improve the employability of the workforce and sporting scenario of India. 5

3. Background Information Description of the Sports Industry: Historical Perspective Sports Industry means any sponsor, corporate entity, legal person, broadcaster, or any other individual or entity involved in promoting, developing, and/or investing, either directly or indirectly, in sports-related activities in India. Sports are considered as a strategic sector and development of domestic capabilities is essential from a national pride and overall development perspective. Sports sector has multiplier effect and has bearing on the growth of other industries. Sports sector is extremely crucial for the development of the country’s economy. Additional benefits are channelization of youth’s energy in constructive activities, increased employment opportunities across health, tourism and education domain, improvement in health of the citizens. Health, education and tourism sectors independently contribute to the social and economic growth of the country through GDP growth, employment generation, capital formation and forex flow. These three sectors are interlinked to sports as well. 7

Other countries have already leveraged sports for employment generation, tourism promotion by conducting marquee events, infrastructure and economic development. Besides this, major sporting nations have performed exceedingly well on health indicators as well. Skill erosion in sports is a serious constraint: More than 90 per cent of the sports persons who take up sports as a passion leave sports because of non-availability of opportunities within Sports Sector. The limited employment opportunities act as a deterrent for those who want to pursue sports because only 2-5 per cent reaches excellence in sports. Even those who reach at pinnacle leave it due to lack of career opportunities. The education system has no stream for sports at any level, except in isolated institutions. This is a constraint in getting persons with the special skills, and aptitude that is required for the various roles. It demands skill development for sports and allied activities which can be created by giving right direction and orientation to the Sports persons which is possible by rapid institutional capacity building of existing institutes. This will fulfill the demand of skilled personnel and will also provide opportunities to those people/ players who are passionate for a career in sp orts but don’t get the opportunities. In the long run this initiative will create eco-system in sports sector. Hence, FICCI has been advocating that developing quality Human resource will certainly bring paradigm shift in Sports landscape of India. Vocationalization of Sports, Physical Education, Fitness and Leisure is the way forward for activating attitudinal change towards sports and help India get its due recognition in sports sector. 8
