Swiss dual-track vocational courses


Aimed to address the country's shortfall of skilled factory labour, the initiative will have select industrial training institutes (ITIs) from Karnataka and Maharashtra as well as four Swiss companies, Bobst India, Burckhardt Compressions India, Buhler India and Rieter India participate in a pilot project.

Indian instructors and trainers will be taking courses from Swiss teachers and factory trainers on Swiss approaches to teaching manufacturing theory and practice.

The local teachers in turn will adopt these approaches while instructing their students in the classroom and on the shop floor. The project will be ramped up in 2010 and 2011 to include more sectors and companies.

The initiative is in partnership with Swiss Federal Office for Professional Education and Technology (OPET), Swiss Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (SVIFET) and Swiss Mechanical and Electrical Engineering Industries (Swissmem).
