Vocational Education in India

Vocational Education

Aware of the huge untapped potential of the vocational education sector and what harnessing it could mean to millions of students, the HRD Ministry is set to fast-track a framework and hopes to involve state governments and, more importantly, the industry in developing an appropriate format. The aim is to develop a curriculum that not only ensures job opportunities for students but also fulfils the need of the industry and in the process arrests the huge dropout rate.

Also, educational institutes will tie up with PSUs like SAIL, Indian Railways, and coal and petroleum public sector units to help develop programmes that assess and understand their needs. The gains will be split between PSUs who will get talented manpower suited to their needs while ensuring employment opportunities for students.
