Indore : Entrance test for bachelor degree courses in vocational education (BVoc) launched by Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya from this session would be held on August 12 and 13.

The last date for applying for the BVoc courses is August 11.

After the approval from University Grants Commission (UGC), the DAVV introduced BVoc programmes in interior designing and fashion technology.

Rs 1.85 crore has been sanctioned by the UGC for these courses being offered by Department of Lifelong Learning, DAVV.

Department head Bharti Joshi said that the DAVV is the only university in the state to launch degree courses in interior designing and fashion technology streams.

Joshi said that BVoc courses job-oriented courses and are for those students who are thinking beyond traditional programmes like BCom, BSc and BA.

The BVoc programme is aimed at raising employability of graduates and meeting the industry’s requirement for ready-to-work students. The programme under the National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF) has a multiple-exit provision – a diploma at the end of the first year and an advanced diploma after two years.

The NSQF was approved on December 19, 2013 by the Cabinet Committee on Skill Development. It organises qualifications based on levels of knowledge, skill and aptitude.
