The TISS SVE model has few unique features:
• All courses are offered in a Work Integrated Training mode where most students get a stipend for the work they do. So it is an Earn while you Learn model. More emphasis on practical training (60%) as compared to the classroom teaching (40%).
• Cost effective model as there is no investment in infrastructure, equipment’s, labs etc. Students learn on the latest equipment’s of the industries
• It is scalable as a large number of students can be trained with the involvement of partners

Talking about this Neela Dabir, Dean Tata Institute of Social Science, School of Vocational Education said, “All over the world there is a major shortage of skilled manpower and most countries are trying to increase the number of skilled workers that are needed by different Industries as well as Service sectors. In India because of the demographic dividend, it is all the more necessary to ensure that our younger generation gets education in employable skills. Only twenty percent of our graduates from the traditional education streams are employable. The rest need to acquire additional qualification to get a job. The situation of youth who cannot afford to learn beyond S.S.C. or H.S.C. is even more vulnerable. Therefore there is a definite need to offer meaningful job oriented skill/vocational training courses in a variety of fields”.
