Skill Based Vocational Training.


The policies above-described above are not very well-suited to the general line of thinking adopted in the Education For All (EFA) agenda. The 2009 Global Monitoring Report (UNESCO, 2009) is quite hostile towards the agenda of “choice, competition and voice”, arguing that competition and choice have the potential to reinforce inequality. Moreover, when Ministers met in Seoul in 1999 at the Second International Congress on Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) they adopted the goal of ‘Technical and Vocational Education for All’’.

TVE is one of the most powerful instruments for enabling all members of the community to face new challenges and to find their roles as productive members of society. It is an effective tool for achieving social cohesion, integration and self-esteem (UNESCO, 1999).

At the same time, however, it can be questioned how the EFA agenda, adopted in Dakar in 2000, does contribute to VET. Goal three – ‘to promote learning and skills for young people and adults’ – is the only goal that addresses some aspects of VET. The goal is not very concrete and it is certainly not as strong as the 1999 Seoul conclusions. Consequently it interpreted in many different ways (UNESCO, 2009, p.91). This could perhaps be the reason why VET is not mentioned in the Global Monitoring Report (ibid).

Generally every lovers of education ask the question what is the constitutionally and reliability of INDIAN INSTITUTE OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION & TECHNICAL TRAINING or what sort of service or where admission can be obtained by students passing out from IIVET.

The only clear answer to all such questions is that all educational Boards / Academies are Autonomous bodies. It is left to the discretion of Academy either to allow or refuse admission to a student from another academy.

In this way every state Government is at liberty whether to provide service to a person who has passed out from a particular academy or educational board or not.
