School of Social Work Roshni Nilaya  in collaboration with Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) has  set up the School of Vocational Education (SVE) to provide immediate and definite interventions to improve the lives of the disadvantaged and marginalized youth, especially who are excluded by the formal school education system through appropriate vocational training programmes. The target beneficiaries would include organized and unorganized labour, women, children, dalits and tribals. Therefore, SVE has been set up with a vision of creating an ecosystem that would bring back the dignity of labour for blue collar streams of work and create sustainable sources of income for the marginalized youth in the country.

The Approach adopted by TISS-SVE is called the Work Integrated Training programme.This Vocational Educational Programme is being implemented for the first time in India with a focus on job-specific skills rather than providing only a broad based education.The aim is to enable the students to learn the skill by engaging in on-the-job training at real shop floor of the agency/industry along with classroom theoretical training.Through this ‘ earn while you learn’ approach model ,the trainee may also earn a modest stipend during on-the –job duration of the course.Although,this is not mandatory for any institution,TISS-SVE strongly encourages the training partners to adopt this practice.

Courses Offered:

  • Early Child Development(Bachelors Degree-six semesters)
  • Child Protection(Bachelors Degree-six semesters)
  • Geriatric Care(Certificate programme-Two semesters)

Student Eligibility Criteria:

All certificates, diploma and degrees shall be awarded by TISS in its capacity as a Deemed university
