Kolhan varsity eyes job course

Kolhan University, which currently offers vocational courses under National University Skill Development Programme, is faced with yet another opportunity to prepare its students for the competitive job market.

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has written to the four-year-old university for starting courses under National Vocational Education Qualification Framework (NVEQF).

The programme, formulated by the Union HRD ministry to create a skilled manpower of 500 million by 2022, begins at the school level and continues into college curriculum.

NVEQF has seven levels of certification. A student will complete four of these at the school and pursue the remaining levels at college. After successful completion of the programme, he/she will receive a bachelor’s degree in vocational education in the specialised field.

Colleges conducting the courses will receive UGC grants.

All India Council for Technical Education has identified 10 disciplines for the unique course. These are automobile, entertainment, information technology, telecommunications, marketing, agriculture, construction, applied arts, tourism, printing and publishing.

Kolhan University’s pro vice-chancellor Shukla Mahanty confirmed receiving the CBSE circular.

“This is a great opportunity for the university. We will propose it to the chancellor and then in the meeting of the academic council. If the programme is approved, we will go ahead with it,” she said.
