Being a student, none of us can deny this fact that “A person without aim is vain”. Life is really complicated these days, as each one of us undergoes ‘n’ number of challenges. Nevertheless, the complexities we as a student face each day make us more determined and fill our hearts with inspiration and enthusiasm to achieve something out of the box. It’s the right time to take a decision and follow our passion, rather than imitate others in filling our pockets with degrees.
What is the Meaning of Vocational Courses?
Most of the students are aware about the mundane regular courses, but vocational courses are designed catering to the needs of a growing economy. The basic idea behind these courses is to ensure acquisition of adequate knowledge and skills. The programmes focus to equip you with more employment opportunities. University Grants Commission (UGC) has launched various Bachelor’s of Vocation, famously known as B.Voc degree courses, wherein for students, multiple entry and exit options are available. This ranges from Diploma/Advanced Diploma to Bachelor’s degrees.
Moreover, the content of the courses is developed and based on NVEQF (National Vocational Educational Qualifications Framework), CBCS (Choice Based Credit System), NSQF and especially keeping the demands of the industry in mind. And all for the job seekers out there.
