A bachelor’s degree in vocational education (BVoc) will be introduced in institutions affiliated with the University Grants Commission (UGC). The UGC formally approved this proposal only recently, which requires a final nod from the commission. Once approved, students will be able to get a bachelor’s degree in vocational education. This will boost employment for graduates. Students will need to choose a sector as well as a specific specialisation from each sector. The proposed sectors include construction, tourism, printing, telecom, IT, mobile and communication. Each sector will have a maximum of 100 students, which means that a college can accommodate 500 students for vocational education. Under the entertainment section, students will be able to opt for a specialisation in theatre or western classical dancing.
