The ministry of Human resource and development (HRD) has agreed to the government’s proposal to set up a separate board for the Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs). The Separate Universty will provide the ITI graduates certificates of CBSE level. The government has requested to give the same standard that they deserve by conducting board exams which are similar to 10th and 12th carried out by CBSE and ICSE.
The Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) is a diploma course studied by the students who qualified their SSC examinations. Till now they were restricted to the college level education and recognized by the fame of colleges that they have studied. But now ITI students are going to have a separate board for conducting examinations and certifying them.
Union Skill Development & Entrepreneurship Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy confirmed the News. There are 13,000 ITIs in India, and 20 lakh students graduate every year. A separate board is required to conduct the examinations in board standards and certify them. Rudy informed “Now we have decided that on the lines of CBSE and ICSE, there will be a Board for ITIs in the country which will give them a certificate equivalent with X and XII standard. The HRD Ministry has agreed to this.”
These students will be trained properly to attend the board examinations. They will be prepared to focus on skill development so that students will not come across any problem while facing the world. Skill development program is very necessary when it comes to acquiring jobs in higher organizations.
Rudy also added that the government is providing skill-based training and creating employment opportunities for graduates. He expressed his view that skill based training should be provided from the school level itself so that they will be able to focus on further studies.
The HRD department agreed for the separate board for ITIs and to provide CBSE level certification. Once the news is finalized, they expect the National Council for Vocational Training will be authorized for the processing.
