The National Knowledge Commission (NKC) considers Vocational Education and Training (VET) as an important element of the nation’s education initiative. In order for VET to play its part effectively in the changing national context and for India to enjoy the fruits of the demographic dividend, there is an urgent need to redefine the critical elements of imparting vocational education to make them flexible, contemporary, relevant, inclusive and creative. The Government is well aware of the important role of VET and has already taken a number of important initiatives. Through consultations with industry groups, academics, civil society and practitioners, NKC has deliberated ways and means to strengthen these initiatives and recommends the following long and short term strategies.
1. Placing Vocational Education entirely under the Ministry of Human Resource Development .
2. Increasing the flexibility of VET within the mainstream education system.
3. Quantifying and monitoring the impact of vocational education.
4. Increasing resource allocation to vocational education.
5. Expanding capacity through innovative delivery models.
6. Enhancing the training options available for the unorganized and informal sector.
7. Strengthening the current institutional structure.
8. Ensuring a robust regulatory and accreditation framework.
9. Undertaking a re-branding exercise.
