Ministry of Human Resources and Development (MHRD) brought out a revised Centrally Sponsored Scheme for Vocationalisation of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (CSS for VSHSE) to integrate employability education into School Education in September 2011. In 2018, this scheme got further revised and brought under the integrated initiative (Samagra Shiksha) by MHRD and termed as Vocationalization of School Education (VSE).
The scheme is operated within the NSQF (National Skill Qualification Framework), which establishes a system of clear educational pathways from school to higher education while providing certification of vocational skills.
The revised norms allow a student to complete training in one Job Role in 9th and 10th standards; followed by another Job Role in 11th and 12th standards.
The Government of Punjab has been implementing VSE in 989 Schools till date, as per approval and funding from MoE (erstwhile MHRD) and Govt of Punjab.
The Government of Punjab is willing to outsource the entire Training Delivery in all the above-mentioned 50 Government schools, to NSDC-approved Training Partners, by initiating a reallocation process, from academic session 2021.
The Govt. of Punjab has approached NSDC with a request to float REOI on their behalf and provide a panel of shortlisted NSDC-approved Training Partners for the rollout of the scheme in these 50 Government schools, from 2021 academic session.
This REoI is intended to shortlist NSDC approved Training Partners for the following trades in the
