4. TECHNICAL AND VOCATIONAL EDUCATION

The policy observed that technical and vocational education in the past was not job oriented and there had been no arrangement for identifying the needs of and providing training to 80 percent rural population, to make them productive. In order, to improve technical and vocational education, it had been decided to introduce production-oriented curriculum related to market requirements in all technical and vocational institutes. An Advisory Committee having representar of trade and industry would be constituted to keep traini responsive to the changing market requirements. Small production Units would be established with technical and vocational institutes under a phased programme. Evening programme would be introduced in technical and vocational institutes for the benefit of the community. Wherever needed, separate vocational schools for dropouts of school system would also be established. Moreover, a Colle e of Technical Education would be established to provide pre-service training to the teachers and to improve in-service training-programmes. The College would also undertake activities such as establishing academic models for training staff development/preparation of books needed for various levels of training.
