Situation Analysis – India
Internationally, the terms “Vocational Education”
and “Vocational Training” are used interchangeably
or the use of combined term- ”Vocational Education and Training” (VET).
In Indian Context- education and training
have been traditionally separated.
Management Structure : National & State Level
Vocational Training is a concurrent subject :
DGE&T is the nodal department for formulating policies, laying down standards, curriculum development, affiliation of institutes/ courses, trade testing and certification.
Two tripartite bodies, viz. The Central Apprenticeship Council (CAC) and the National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT) advise Central Government on various aspects of VT
Corresponding State Councils advise the State Governments in respect of vocational training at State level.
The State Governments are responsible for implementation of Vocational Training Programmes at the State level .
Management Structure National & State Level
State Government Departments deliver vocational training through :-
Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs)- under the administrative and financial control of the respective State Government .
Industrial Training Centers (ITCs)- privately funded and managed (some get support from State Governments)

Implemented through 3 approved agencies/bodies and 17 State Governments
Competency based skill standards have been developed for 47 skill areas mainly for construction sector .
Skill Development for informal sector
To provide skill training to, economically weaker section & less educated persons - a new framework for skill development is being evolved. Competency oriented employable skill training will be offered on modular basis.
The scheme envisaged to train and certify 1 million persons in five years in employable skills .
Thereafter 1 million people will be trained every year .
These acquired qualifications will be expressed in terms of learning outcomes. For skill progression of this target group a national qualification frame work is being evolved.
ILO recommendation 195 on frame work for recognition and certification of skills adopted by the ILO conference at ninety –second session Geneva,17th June,2004
Development of National Qualification framework
Mutual recognition of Qualification and harmonization of skill standards
