MHRD to unveil the new vocational education policy next month

The National Vocational Education Qualification Framework (NVEQF) programme to be launched across the country in 2012 will be unveiled by the Ministry of Human Resource Development next month. To bring competency-based skills along with formal learning and increase employability, vocational studies will be a full-fledged programme from next year, starting from Class IX till graduation and will be integrated with mainstream education in schools and colleges.

There will be seven levels of certification of 1,000 hours each year. There will also be multiple entry-exit points. For instance, students, who decide to take up a job after Class XII, can come back and can also do regular BA, BSc and B.Com. The learning will include both vocational skills and general learning. Level 1 begins in Class IX and will include 200 hours of vocational and 800 hours of general education. n Class X, students will go through 250-300 hours of vocational education and 700-750 hours of general learning and on successful completion, students will get level two certification. Certification levels three and four will be Class XI and XII respectively and will include 350 hours of vocational and 650 hours of general education. Levels three, four and five will be bachelors in vocational education. Alternatively, after the first two levels, students can get into a polytechnic and do certification levels three, four and five and get a diploma and then pursue six and seven, which will be advanced levels. The content at level seven will include 800 hours of vocational and 200 hours of general learning. Colleges will create new divisions of vocational education and a school will start vocational education. Vocational skills may be be provided by the school/college or by skill knowledge providers.

The AICTE will register skill knowledge providers in every state and the process will start in November. For instance, if someone wants to become an automotive or a vehicles specialist, then he/she can go outside to a Maruti service centre for the necessary training, assessment and certification and learn physics, chemistry and maths from the college.

The competency-based skills will be sector-specific and will include IT, ITES, telecom, retail, banking, automobile and media among several others. Colleges which want to start vocational division will also have to seek AICTE approval and the process is likely to start from December.
