A vocational school/institute is a place where students come and acquire some skills in order to establish a business of their own or specialise in a profession. There are several vocational schools all around the world. Whilst some are free because they are attached to a not for profit organisation, others are strictly all out to make money.
Technopak Analysis shows that in the beginning of 2016, there were almost 20,000 vocational schools in India run by Government ITI, Polytechnics, Private ITI and other private training centres. The annual demand by for vocational institutes was by 10 million students whereas the supply was only to 3 million students, thus, creating a huge shortfall of need-gap by 7 million.
Starting a vocational school can be tricky. One can probably be an expert in his/her field, and might already have a lot of experience teaching it, but ironically, the knowledge of his/her industry may have very little to do with the business of starting a vocational school.
The steps essential in opening a vocational institute can be complicated and can involve potential pitfalls too. If taken care, one’s current expertise can be translated into skills needed to start a vocational school and avoiding making mistakes simultaneously. CESD gives opportunity to work as VTP.
