ITI's Adopt B-School Grading Style
The Government of India has decided to refresh the image of Industrial Training Institutes (ITI's), the not-so-rich extended family of Indian Engineering Colleges and Polytechnics to make them a National Brand. The idea is to rate these institutes the way B-Schools are rated so that they can be classified into different tiers.

This measures is expected to help students seeking admissions in IIT's to opt and decide their preferred institute. The IIT's have adapted this idea as the institutes are also working towards improving their image and become more competitive after the decision of government to improve the IIT's by implementing Public Private Partnership (PPP) model in its 11th Five-Year Plan.

The president and CEO of Vocational Training, CL Educate, branch of Career Launcher claimed that after grading the IIT's, the next focus should be on upgrading the educational standards and quality of faculty members as well as launch new courses.

There are 21 ITI's under CL Educate- 15 based in Punjab and 6 based in Karnataka, which have witnessed 100% pass rate in the past years. At Present, there are 9415 ITI's of which 2244 are government owned and 7171 are private ITI's. The ITI's have a total number of 13.29 lakh seats. The duration of course ranges from 3 to 6 months and maximum qualification required for admissions is from class VII to Class XII. Since last 8 years, 400 governments owned ITI's have been established with the support of World Bank and 100 through Funding in India.

PPL model implies that industry partner will direct the process of improvement of the ITI's. A committee known as Institute Management Committee (IMC) will be formed and listed as a society. The PPP model imparts financial and academic independence to the IMC. It will also allow IMC to develop modern infrastructure and promote ITI trades. Presently ITI's have 7 trades which have increased the demand from domestic candidate.

However, ITI's are also investing on building an improved infrastructure to give them a corporate look so that companies get attracted and start visiting the campus for recruitment’s. The ITI's have also started hosting entrepreneurship lectures for their students.
