The University set its School of Vocational Education to provide immediate and definite interventions to improve the skill levels of millions of youth, through appropriate vocational training programmes. The target beneficiaries include organized and unorganized workforce across the industries and SVE aims to cover every individual who needs to develop employable skills.
The approach adopted by the University is called the Work Integrated Training Programme (WITP). The Vocational Educational Programme is being implemented for the first time in India with a focus on job-specific skills rather than providing only a broad knowledge based education.
VISION: To facilitate the youth, especially the first generation learners to take up industry relevant skill training that will help them in securing a better livelihood, thereby consequently enhancing the economy of the nation.
MISSION: Offer equal opportunities to all thereby enabling the youth to unleash their latent potential.
AIMS: The aim is ‘Earn while you learn’. The model enables the students to learn the skills by engaging in on-the-job training at real shop floor of the industry/company along with theory training in the classroom. Through the model, the trainee may also earn a modest stipend during on-the-job training of the course. Although, this is not mandatory for any institution, the University strongly encourages its Skill Knowledge Providers (SKPs) to adopt this practice.
The University currently offers several programmes beginning with a Diploma course and leading to Bachelor of Vocational Degree [B. Voc] in three years. Every individual level / year is a stand-alone certification recognised and awarded by the university. These programmes allow the students after their 12th standard or equivalent; to join directly at NSQF Level 5, based on their academic achievements.
The objective of the Vocational Course is to enable the Students to take up Industry relevant skill training that would help them in securing a better livelihood.
