The Kerala State Skill Development Project was launched by the Government of Kerala (GOK) in July 2012 to enhance the employability of the state's youth and create opportunities for productive employment. It has two sub-programs to tackle the supply-side problems. The first, the Additional Skill Acquisition Program (ASAP), has been designed by the Departments of Higher Education and General Education, GOK to address the preventive dimension of low employability. The second, the Additional Skill Enhancement Program, has been designed by the Department of Labor and Employment and the Department of Local Self Government, GOK to address the curative dimension by focusing on re-skilling the unemployed youths registered with employment exchanges.
