Conference paper


Improvement in availability of trained manpower and good infrastructure is required for the sustainable growth of the industry. Only an advanced, specialised and industry-specific initiative can lead to competitive advantage. Recently, there is a shift in the focus towards investigation of learning and development factors. Hence, a new concept, termed as ‘vocational value vector (V3) management’ for enhancing industrial employability quotient (EmQ) of the trainees, was developed. Through this chapter, an attempt is made to discuss the results of the improvements in the expected employability skill vectors in the TVET programme and their sustainability during the induction at a technical training institute near Bangalore, India.
