This scheme is implemented in the State through 263 Government owned Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) having 1,04,473 sanctioned seats, 126 Grant-in-Aid Industrial Training Centers (ITCs) & 314 Self Financed ITCs.

Director General of Employment & Training, Ministry of Labour, Government of India, under the aegis of National Council of Vocational Training (NCVT), lays down the guidelines for implementation of CTS. Under this scheme, the duration of various vocational trades training courses varies between 1 to 3 years. Every week, the trainee is expected to undergo 28 hours of practical training besides 10 hours of theoretical instruction ( 4 hours for trade theory + 2 hours for workshop calculation + 2 hours for engineering drawing + 2 hours for social studies ) and another 4 hours for extra curricular activities including library studies and physical training.

At the end of the training 80 % attendance is must for appearing in the examination. Every year, in the months of July and February, the NCVT conducts All India Trade Test and successful trainees are awarded National Trade Certificates (NTCs). These certificates are very useful for the employment in the country as well as abroad.

  • The skill standards for the certification of the competencies would be developed as per the demand of the industry keeping in view the competency standard prescribed by advanced countries such as NVQS developed by Australia, UK.
  • The testing and certification would be done jointly by industry and Government to avoid the gap between skill requirements and competency levels attained by the trainees. All India Trade Test under the aegis of NCVT will be organized for the broad based basic training and some selected modules to have uniformity in the syllabus and also to provide mobility to the trainees. The industry associations of the particular areas should actively involve in evaluation of the skill of trainees at the end of the training period. The theory part can be taken up the ITI/Government. A mechanism for joint certification ( or two certificates- one from industry and one from institute) needs to be developed.

What is Expected from Industry ?

If we consider skilled manpower as one of the raw material for the industry, then ITIs are producing the said raw material. In case the raw material is not of the required standard, then the industry will face difficulty in producing quality goods and this will affect their market. Industry should therefore, come forward in big way and actively participate in the skill development activities. Industry to participate actively right from the identification of training areas to evaluation of trainees.

The main activities could be:

  • Forecast of new emerging areas
  • Development of curriculum
  • Selection of trainees
  • Training trainers
  • Guest faculty
  • On job training
  • Donation of equipment
  • Testing and certification

VOCATIONAL TRAINING SERVICES

In Gujarat State, more than 7,00,000 students annually appear for Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary School Certificate (HSC)(Std. 10th & 12th respectively) examinations.All of these students constitute the prospective workforce and are also the jobseekers and their skills would be the required for productive investments in the industries and services sectors in the state. Therefore, vocational training is must for such prospective workforce of the nation. DET’s Training Wing has various schemes for the benefit of the jobseekers. These schemes aim at providing vocational training to the jobseekers so as to improve their employability. Details of such schemes are as following:

Short-term Training Programmes

The levels of vocational skills in the labour force in India compare poorly with the position in other countries. Only 5% of the Indian labour force in the age group 20-24 has vocational skills as against 60-80% in the industrialized countries. Few important conclusions, which emerge from the World Employment Report 1998-99, are such as the limited demand for unskilled and less skilled labour, increase in demand for skilled labour on account of technological developments etc. Therefore, expansion of vocational training facilities in the emerging areas of employment has been recognized as an important strategy. Accordingly, DET has started 3-month duration computer related training programmes in several ITIs in the state (See Institute List). All registered jobseekers, if interested, are entitled to get admissions in such courses subject to the applicable admission terms and conditions.
