Welcome to the School of Vocational Education
School of Vocational Education
In December 2011, Tata Institute of Social Sciences set up the School of Vocational Education (SVE) to provide immediate and definite interventions to improve the lives of the disadvantaged and marginalized youth, especially who are excluded by the formal school education system through appropriate vocational training programmes. The target beneficiaries would include organized and unorganized labour, women, children, dalits and tribals. Therefore, SVE has been set up with a vision of creating an ecosystem that would bring back the dignity of labour for blue collar streams of work and create sustainable sources of income for the marginalized youth in the country.
The School has been incorporated to spearhead the Vocational Training envisaged in the initiative proposed by the Ministry of HRD, Government of India whereby TISS has been selected as nodal point to implement the said initiative.
Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) has signed MoU with All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE). This MoU specifically covers courses that are built within the Community College framework of the AICTE. AICTE has empowered TISS to run vocational education interventions designed on the “Work Integrated Training” provision in the Community College model through appropriate partnership structure as it deems fit. The diploma and degree certificate will be awarded jointly by TISS (in the capacity of a Deemed University) and AICTE. These courses will be recognised by the statutory/government bodies such as the All India Council for Technical Education and the University Grants Commission.
Policy changes permitting, advanced degree programmes also will be offered with potential cross transfers to the academic steams to pursue degree and diploma courses as per NSQF. The training begins with basic orientation and job skills modules, covering the aspects of the World of Work that the student is going to enter and make this transition seamless to reduce drop outs and the delivery will be through a work integrated approach. The model proposed is demand derived and thus leads to assured employability. A joint working group constituted with the members of AICTE and TISS to review the progress of the program.
THE SCHOOL OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION INVITES APPLICATIONS FROM INSTITUTES AND ORGANIZATIONS TO PARTNER WITH TISS.
