ANSWERS Education can be acquired through Formal, Informal or Experiential method. Formal Education is one, which acquired with an accomplished trainer, who guides/leads the process of learning of the recipient. This is normally done by placing suitably organized information & evidence for the recipient, by debating & challenging any apprehensions or doubts, and through suitable demonstrations & controlled experiments. Certificates, Diploma & Degrees are conferred on the individual in the formal education system & are distinguishing feature of this system. Informal Education is acquired through contemplation, observation, curiosity & logical reasoning, experimentation, Real life experiences & Self study. Experiential education is acquired as apprenticeship in a profession or trade under a supervisor, in experience sharing sessions (formal or informal) at work place or trade/industry seminars, by going through manuals, communication & directives that are part & parcel of any work place or industry. Education is categorized as Primary, Secondary & Tertiary Education. Primary education is the one that is given up to 10-11 years of age under the formal education.

What opportunities are there in the environment for the firm you work for? 1. Opportunity for CBSE /ICSE Boards 2. VOCATIONAL TRAINING SCHOOL
Opportunity for Vocational Training School Vocational education or vocational education and training (VET) prepares trainees for jobs that are based on manual or practical activities, traditionally nonacademic, and totally related to a specific trade, occupation, or vocation. It is sometimes referred to as technical education as the trainee directly develops expertise in a particular group of techniques or technology.

Vocational education may be classified as teaching procedural knowledge. This can be contrasted with declarative knowledge, as used in education in a usually broader scientific field, which might concentrate on theory and abstract conceptual knowledge, characteristic of tertiary education. Vocational education can be at the secondary or post-secondary level and can interact with the apprenticeship system. Increasingly, vocational education can be recognised in terms of recognition of prior learning and partial academic credit towards tertiary education (e.g., at a university) as credit; however, it is rarely considered in its own form to fall under the traditional definition of higher education. 3. Opportunity for Foreign Education collaboration
Evaluate the opportunities Based on the following criteria: a. Financial i. CBSE /ICSE Boards : The intial set up cost is very high , including the operating cost is very high as the trained teachers of CBSE /ICSE board quote double the remuneration as compared to GSEB board. The syllabus is non exhaustive and so will be efforts of the management. ii. Vocational Training School : A very innovative idea and practical too. In other states like Maharastra , vocational Training is given in the secondary and the higher secondary . where as in Gujarat the vocational training starts after entering the college life or Tertiary education. Financially also it is very viable. iii. Foreign Collaboration : the Financial part will again pose a problem as the collaboration with be in foreign currency. b. Competencies available and required i. Taking into consideration only the Vocational training Part ,te competencies required will be a management head who is aware of all the vocational syllabus planning . Can be easily acquired from the Polytechnic Colleges for Science Stream , even ITI is giving Vocational training but the learning part and syllabus is poorly designed with no practical knowledge training . our a Vocational traing School will not only design a intensive course structure but also stimulators training for every student which will enable him to use the knowledge practically . For Commerce Stream , we can design short term courses from well known private institutes like Tally , Sales Tax Knowledge , INCOME TAX etc

This type of vocational training will not only make them move from book worms to professionals but also will give them a job opportunity easily and faster. c. Amount of change required 5. Choose the best opportunity for your company. What are the key factors which would influence the success of tis opportunity?
