The Indian Vocational Education and Training (VET) System: Status, Challenges, and Options
Kotamraju, Pradeep
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v38 n8 p740-747 2014
India is at the cusp of becoming an economic powerhouse. For that to happen, however, the country needs to alter its workforce education system by reengineering the Indian Vocational Education and Training (VET) System. India's VET strategy includes creating basic work-centered common curriculum for the unskilled; developing a more flexible and responsive VET system that effectively educates and trains many more of the semiskilled; and raising the competencies of the skilled worker to international levels by using, for example, public/private partnerships. Regardless of the model for delivery of this training, this article suggests that the Indian workforce education system should adopt a comprehensive organizational strategy that accommodates the balancing of competing missions.
