Designed and delivered the National Vocational Education Qualification framework and is implemented in the polytechnics and the Engineering Institutions in the Country

The National Vocational Education Qualification frame work (NVEQF), now National Skills Qualification Frame work (NSQF), on which I have worked for more than three years, will help in promoting skill based competency modules to be integrated into seven certification levels to Graduation beginning at 9th Standard in school, where a student can undergo skill based learning that enhances employability and employment opportunities and also allowing him/her the flexibility to pursue formal education or take up an appropriate job at the end of any level of certification. NSQF allows multi point entry / exit vertical and lateral mobility, recognises prior learning and is modular and Credit based. The framework further allows a person to progress with only the skill stream along with soft skills.

 A robust credit framework that was created by me was also released by MHRD on 11/11/14 that allows credit-based mobility between Vocational education, Conventional education and the job markets.
