Department of Technical Education, Training and Skill Development Government Of West Bengal :

 

The Technical Education, Training & Skill Development (TET&SD) Department is the nodal department for all the skill development interventions of the Government of West Bengal. All the skilling interventions of other departments are channelized through the TET&SD Development.

A 3-tier model of skilling is being adopted by the department with vocational training centers at the panchayat level leading to a vertical integration possibility to an ITI at the block level and on to Polytechnic Institute at the sub divisional level which are being benchmarked. The state is also trying to set up Centres of Excellence (COEs) in collaboration with industry as well as Industry associations in sectors/areas having high employment potential.

 While the TET &SD Development through its Directorates and Councils supervises 250 ITIs, 153 polytechnics and around 3500 vocational training centers operating all over the state, it also provides requisite support for short term skill Development. The annual target of skilling in the state would be around 6 lakh youths under the institutional and non-institutional mode.
