New Delhi, Aug 6 2018
The Cabinet will soon consider a proposal for setting up a regulator for vocational training on the lines of the AICTE to improve the quality of skilled manpower, according to government officials.
The regulatory agency will also carry out assessment and certification of around 23 lakh students passing out from industrial training institutes (ITIs), and oversee the functioning of skill councils.
Sector skill councils are industry-led bodies by NSDC which create Occupational Standards and Qualification bodies, develop competency framework, conduct train the trainer programmes, conduct skill gap studies and assess and certify trainees on the curriculum aligned to national occupational standards.
