Main objectives of the National Meeting-cum-Workshop
As per the recommendations in the NEP-2020, there is a need to align vocational education in school education to higher education. School and higher education need to collaborate for this alignment.
The government need to focus on revamping the vocational education and training system as technology-based skills among the youth have become more essential than ever.
The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 focuses on bringing vocational education into mainstream education.
- Vocational education will be integrated into all school and higher education institutions in a phased manner over the next decade
- Vocational pass-out students of schools can enter vocational courses offered by Schools, Industrial Training Institutes, Polytechnics, and higher education, including Bachelor of Vocational Education (B. Voc).
Here is the main objective behind the workshop,
- Provide a platform for the exchange of information regarding vocational courses implemented at School and Higher Education.
- Explore the career opportunities in industries and deliberate upon the implementation of vocational courses to reduce the mismatch between demand and supply of skilled manpower.
- Identify the issues related to vertical and horizontal mobility of vocational students and recommend strategies for promoting mobility to higher education institutions
- provide strategic directions for introducing bridge courses and other vocational courses to align school education with higher education.
In India, one of the most significant problems is to establish vertical progression in vocational education so that school-aged kids can enrol in vocational courses given by Industrial Training Institutes, Polytechnics, and higher education institutions, such as Bachelor of Vocational Education (B. Voc.). More opportunities for vertical mobility should be created, such as Diploma and B. Voc. courses in higher education institutions and universities. This will make it easier for students to pursue higher education in occupational fields.
PSSCIVE, through the two-day-long workshop, aims to address all the challenges and queries related to vocational education in India.
