Project Description

The project has three components: (i) Improving the Quality of Vocational Training, (ii) Promoting Systemic Reforms and Innovation, and (iii) Project Management, and Monitoring and Evaluation.

The project is guided at the central-level by a National Steering Committee (NSC), chaired by the Secretary of MoLE, and including significant senior-level representation from industry.  The NSC selects State/UTs to participate in the project, and allocate funds for project activities to the DGE&T, State/UTs, institutions and others.  The NSC reviews project implementation at the national level.  The NSC is supported by a National Project Implementation Unit (NPIU), headed by a National Project Director.

Within each State/UT the project is guided by a State Steering Committee (SSC), headed by the Principal Secretary/ Secretary/ Commissioner for vocational training and including significant senior-level representation from industry.  The SSCs recommend institutions to be financed under the project and within their project budget allocations.  Each SSC will review project implementation at a State/UT level throughout the life of the project.  The SSC is assisted by a State Project Implementation Unit (SPIU) with adequate full-time officials/consultants and support staff.

At the institutional level, each participating ITI has an Institute Management Committee (IMC) for the whole ITI, with significant participation of industry.  It is chaired by an industrialist so as to enhance the involvement of industry in all aspects of training and to ensure that training courses are fully demand driven.  IMCs have been delegated sufficient authority in academic, administrative, financial and management matters to discharge their functions documented in the MoU signed between GOI and the states.
