Education without skills is of no use in today's world

School of Vocational Education

Bachelor of Vocation (B.Voc.) program offered by the School of Vocational Education at Shri Venkateshwara University approved by the University Grants Commission (UGC).

Shri Venkateshwara University (SVU) strongly believes that education without skills is of no use in today's world. Jobs are becoming highly skill-intensive, and the present education system is largely comprised of the theoretical components, therefore less or no focus is being given on practical skills, which has largely impacted the job prospects amongst the job seekers.

Shri Venkateshwara University (SVU) has established a School of Vocational Studies to address the gap between academia and industry needs. SVU has introduced Bachelor of Vocation (B.Voc.) courses in multiple trades and specializations intending to provide students with in-depth knowledge on practical aspects to handle the complexities of tasks in the real work environment. The curriculum has been designed as per the guidelines laid down by NSQF.

The key objective is to make education more practical and industry-oriented, the larger portion i.e. 60% - 70% of the course is essentially to be imparted in skill component and the balance 30% is general education. Therefore, the student undergoes the skill component training within the respective industry. The “On Job Training” and “Work-Based Learning” elements are the essential components of the curriculum.

Moreover the skill development components of B.Voc. courses have been very carefully designed in consultation with industries/employers to ensure the adequate knowledge and skills at exit point which shall further ensure the students are work-ready and fit to be employed after the completion of the course. Thus, a thoughtfully designed skill Development course at Shri Venkateshwara University would give you comprehensive knowledge and excellence to explore more in your specific field.

About B.Voc. Programme

The University Grants Commission (UGC), in 2013, introduced Bachelor of Vocation, commonly known as B.Voc degree programme with multiple entry and exit points, which can be understood as after completing one year if the student opts for the exit, he/she is awarded a diploma certificate.

The focus of this programme is to provide students with in-depth knowledge of practical aspects to handle the complexities of tasks in the real work environment. B.Voc. courses are considered to be a new generation training programme which emphases on industry practices and are carefully designed in consultation with industries/employers with an objective to make students industry-ready.

UGC-B.VOC Scheme

The University Grants Commission (UGC) has launched a scheme on skills development based on higher education as part of college/university education, leading to Bachelor of Vocation (B.Voc.) Degree with multiple exits such as Diploma/Advanced Diploma under the NSQF.

This would enable the graduates completing B.Voc. to make a meaningful participation in accelerating India’s economy by gaining appropriate employment, becoming entrepreneurs and creating appropriate knowledge. NSQF has adopted a very holistic approach in designing the credit framework primarily aimed at promoting lateral and vertical mobility, beauty lies in a pre-defined entry and multiple exit points. It is an effort to bridge the gap between certificate and Diploma level and between Diploma and Degree levels by allowing for mobility from one to the other.

It also provides an opportunity to Diploma holders to pursue graduation in vocational education and graduates to further pursue post-graduation using the previously earned credits, Overall this credit system helps improving the employability of our certificate, Diploma and Degree holders and provide a framework for lifelong learning through flexible credit transfers and Community College like institutions, within the framework of higher education institutions.
