The Contribution of IGNOU In North East India
Vocational training is about “imparting of specialized skills and knowledge, instilling social and political attitudes and behaviour patterns for successful economic activities by people engaged in dependent employment, self-employment in both Formal as well as Non-formal trainings”. In its 'Formal training' all training courses are held in state or private (but state-certified) institutions and are regulated by state guidelines where as in the 'Non-formal training' it takes place without being subject to state guidelines and provides skills-upgrading for those who wish to extend their competencies. Vocational training, in its nonformal form, upgrades the skills, helps in capacity building, expands livelihood opportunities for the underprivileged, unreached informal sector workers and plays a key role in the national development. // This paper enumerates the non-formal vocational training being imparted by the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU) to the underprivileged and unreached people in the North East Region (NER). It underlines the university’s two channels i.e Regional Centres and Institutes through which these training programmes are imparted.The paper highlights the university’s contribution towards the national development by conducting these training programmes in the N E R.
