The Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS)

Tata Institute of Social Sciences, a multi campus institution, deemed to be University under Section 3 of the UGC Act 1956, and a grant-in-aid Institute under Ministry of Education, Government of India, was established in the year 1936.

TISS occupies a unique position among the higher learning institutions in the country and stands out as an institution of excellence that continually responds to the changing social realities through the development and application of knowledge towards creating a people-centred, ecologically sustainable and just society that promotes and protects dignity, equality, social justice and human rights.

TISS is a Grade One University bearing letter grade A+ with a score of 3.33 in National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) rating and top 100 in The National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF).

The School of Skill Education (SSE)

The School of Skill Education was set up in 2012 to spearhead the Institute’s commitment to provide skill education and training to millions of youth in India through appropriately designed industry relevant/market oriented skill educational programmes.
Each of the Bachelor’s programmes is a direct outcome of India’s recognition of the importance of skilling the youth to meet the ‘skilled’ workforce demand of the industries. All the programmes incorporate the skill sector’ specific job roles and their corresponding National Occupational Standards (NOS).
The core vision of the School is to create skill based sustainable income sources for the youth by skilling them in key industrial job competencies that would promote better employability, better livelihood, a brighter future and subsequently contribute to the economy of the nation.
The one of a kind ‘work integrated skill training programme’ adopted by TISS SSE focusing on developing job-specific skills rather than providing only broad knowledge based education is being implemented for the first time in India.

SVE Profile

The curriculum is an integration of general education and job-specific knowledge and skills which is transmitted through a blend of taught classes and practical skill training - a unique, distinctive skilling pedagogy brand of TISS SSE emphasizing on holistic education. The on-the-job training (OJT) is conducted at the real shop floor of the booming industries and companies of the skill sector.
The internship embedded ‘work while you learn’ pedagogical process provides students the much needed work-oriented experiential learning and job skills simultaneously, and sometimes an opportunity to earn a modest stipend, while engaging in internship/OJT.
