Background History !

​​The origin of Vocational Education can be traced from the Vedic Period. It descended from parents to children in the beginning. Later on in the middle ages it was given an Institutional shape. The importance of Vocationalisation has been stressed by several commissions set up for suggesting reforms in Education. If the students are well equipped with necessary skills and competencies in some Vocation at Secondary or Higher Secondary level, they can face the life with confidence and also supplement their family income.

The National Policy on Education (1986) anticipates that education develops manpower for different levels of economy and the gap between the school and the world of work should be bridged.  Kothari Commission was most emphatic to recommend vocationalisation of education.  In order to achieve the Vocationalisation of Education, Government of India introduced the present existing system of Vocational Education at +2 stages.
