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.
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 is entrusted with the duty to initiate all such steps as it may feel fit for ensuring coordinated and integrated development of technical and management education and maintenance of standards. TISS has set up a School of Vocational Education 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. Through this MoU, TISS proposes to incubate a national vocational training University starting as a School of Vocational Education operating under its aegis offering a 2 year certificate course. 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 NVEQF. 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.
