TN to set up a Vocational University

With a view to meeting the increasing demand-supply gap of skilled workers in the State, the Confederation of Indian Industry – Tamil Nadu State Council (CII–TNSC) has urged the State government to set up a Vocational University to facilitate vertical mobility of students opting for vocational education. According to the study, the current formal education system in the State provided fewer options for vocational training, while vocational training systems had limited options involving mathematics and language learning. Hence, it was difficult for a candidate enrolled in the formal education system to get industry-relevant skills while his vocational stream counter-part was left with limited life skills.
