Every year, over 2 million students are graduated from the 13,000 Industrial Training Institutes. The government proposed a set up the separate board for the ITI Graduates. It will help the candidates by conducting exams and award certificates those who cleared Class 10 & 12 examinations from the boards like CBSE and ICSE.
The Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry is likely to propose the system, and the move will also help the students who are undertaking courses in ITIs to pursue regular courses in other schools and colleges. The Union Skill Development & Entrepreneurship Minister Rajiv Pratap Rudy informed that the proposed ITI board would be on lines of CBSE and ICSE.
As per the senior officials in the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship, once the proposal formalised, the National Council for Vocation Training (NCVT) will be authorised to conduct the examination and to give the certification of Class 10 & 12 for the ITI graduates.
Moreover, the CBSE, UGC, AICTE, NCERT, AIU and other state education boards will be informed that the NCVT is authorised to conduct the academic examinations for the IIT passed outs and also awards the Class 10 & 12 certificates. It should be honoured by all educational institutions to provide opportunities for the higher studies.
According to the reports, the board will give the certificate which will be equivalent to Class 10 & 12 certificates that are issued by regular boards. “The ITIs opening in the country will be at par with the quality of central schools like Kendriya Vidyalayas and other good quality training institutions,” said by the Rajiv Pratap Rudy.
