Australian Vocational Courses in CBSE SchoolsThe Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has tied up with the Central Institute of Technology (CIT) , a vocational education institution under the department of training and workforce development, Government of Western Australia, to design the curriculum and train teachers in vocational courses. The programme, ‘VET in Schools’ , will be conducted at the senior secondary level from next academic year onwards.

It will cover four courses — design fundamentals , business administration , music technical production and beauty services. The design fundamental course offers the foundation for a career as an artist, or an industrial or interior / exterior designer. The business administration course will provide specialist skills in business administration. The music technical production course will provide a practical introduction to recording processes.

Apart from the advantage of the featured course being offered in their own schools while continuing the regular studies, the students will also have to pay much less fees as against taking the same courses in Australia.

The curriculum and resource materials, including assessment plans and templates for lesson plans for teachers and students for each of these courses will be provided by CIT, which will be contextualised by the CBSE to suit Indian needs. Master trainers will be trained by CIT in January 2013, while teacher training workshops will be organised by the board with assistance from the Australian institution.
