VE - Vocational education prepares people to work in various jobs, such as a trade, a craft, or as a technician. Vocational education is sometimes referred to as career education or technical education. A vocational school is a type of educational institution specifically designed to provide vocational education. Vocational education can begin at the post-secondary, further education, and higher education level; and can interact with the apprenticeship system. At the post-secondary level, vocational education is often provided by highly specialized trade, Technical schools, community colleges, Institutes of technology / Polytechnic Institutes. Formerly almost all vocational education took place in the classroom, or on the job site, with students learning trade skills and trade theory from certified professors or established professionals. However, online vocational education has grown in popularity, and made it easier than ever for students to learn various trade skills and soft skills from established professionals in the industry.

VTIP - The joint team of the World Bank and the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MoSD&E) undertook the Tenth Joint Review Mission (JRM) of the Vocational Training Improvement Project (VTIP) during May 28 - June 12, 2015. The aim of the Vocational Training Improvement Project for India is to boost the employment outcomes of graduates from the vocational training system, by making the design and delivery of training more demand responsive. Project implementation was initially delayed due to: (i) creating shared understanding among all key stakeholders on and implementation of reforms introduced by the project took time; (ii) due to delays in startup about 50 percent of the institutions have got about three years of implementation support and full five year implementation period will equip them to obtain National Council of Vocational Training (NCVT) affiliation and accreditation ; (iii) initial delays in funds flow from the state finance departments to the line departments and capacity constraints slowed down the pace of implementation. However, most of the barriers hindering implementation have now been overcome. Hence, implementation during the extended period is not likely to be affected by the above implementation barriers, although some of the capacity challenges remain and are being addressed. No additional financing is requested.
