Scaling vocational education: A case study of TISS-SVE

Vocational education in India has not received the attention that it deserves and has therefore languished. Currently, less than five percent of the Indian workforce in the age group of 19-24 receives formal vocational education. In comparison, this number is as high as 96 percent in South Korea, 75 percent in Germany and 52 percent in the USA. The Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) and the Polytechnics that have been largely responsible for offering vocational education in the country so far have not been able to deliver adequately, either in numbers or in quality. There is an urgent need to expand the delivery of vocational education to cover the millions of youth that need to be skilled for the jobs of the future. This report studies the case of the Tata Institute of Social Sciences-School of Vocational Education (TISS-SVE).
