Present Scenario of Vocational Education, Training & Skill Development

Vocational education is gaining tremendous importance in our country in recent years. As compared to countries such as Korea where over 90% of the workforce is vocationally qualified, India has only 5-7% of its workforce vocationally trained or qualified. Proportion of Students in Vocational Education at +2 level in India is only 4.8 % whereas in Germany it is more than 65 % and in Japan it is more than 40 % (Source: Report from MHRD).

The lack of employability as an outcome of the education system has given rise to the need for skill based education. The development and economic growth of India will be accelerated if the youth of our country get vocational education and acquire relevant skills. The Central and the State Government are emphasizing on building skilled human resources. The Hon’ble Prime Minister of India has created the National Skill Development Mission with the ambitious objective of creating 500 million skilled resources in the next 5 years. The National Skill Development Corporation has been established to further implement this objective.

In India, skill acquisition takes place through two basic structural streams – a small formal one and a large informal one. Most skills obtained by workers are through an informal training system such as family inheritance or “guru-shishya parampara”. Only about 2.5 million vocational training seats are available in the India whereas 12.8 million persons enter the labor market each year (Report from MHRD).

Vocational Education has several advantages like reducing unemployment among the educated youth and solving the problem of unemployment, increasing productivity and bringing economic prosperity to the people and suiting individual aptitudes along-with instilling sense of security and usefulness among the youth. Despite having so many advantages for the society it has never been on the agenda of the policy makers and people are equally responsible for it because of their biased attitude and looking at vocational education as inferior education.


Vocational Education Foundation (VEF) had already marked its entry in the formal sector of Education by setting up IEC CET, IEC Education , which was primarily known as IEC Software Ltd. VEF strives to provide high quality education and leave no stone unturned to achieve this goal. IEC has enjoyed its global presence with 7 branches and over 275 franchisee centers in India and in countries like Nepal, Maldives, Singapore and Oman; it provided a wide spectrum of unique Information Technology solutions and services to a clientele of premier organizations in the government.

Under an agreement with Rajasthan Government, IEC was providing Computer Education to 56 colleges under Rajasthan University and Mohanlal Sukhodia University of Rajasthan along with 844 schools in the states. Close to two lacks students in Rajasthan Colleges and Schools are getting computer education & training under this programmed.

IEC Softwares Limited, an ISO-9001 company is one of the pioneers in India, in the field of Information Technology, having started operations two decades back.

Today IEC is an established brand name in Computer Education, Science, Technology and Management, Hotel Management, Pharmacy, Vocational education, and an organization of national repute.
