 UGC SPONSORDED SKILLED BASED PROGRAMMES:

University Grants Commissions (UGC) launched three Skill Based Educational Schemes- 1. Bachelor of Vocational (BVoc), 2. Community College and 3.Dean Dayal Upadyaya Kendra, in the Year 2014-2015 for colleges and universities on the initiative of Ministry of Human Resources Development (MHRD), Govt. of India. Abhayapuri took the advantage of this and submitted proposals for all the schemes. College got approval for the first two from UGC, while we had to miss the third one because of inadequacy of infrastructure for the scheme and so we did not appear in the UGC interface meeting at New Delhi.

Abhayapuri College was one of the six colleges of Assam to grab this opportunity to get the UGC approval for opening of two programmes- Information Technology (IT) and Tourism and Travel Management (TTM) under B.Voc Scheme and one programme Banking Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) under Community College Scheme. In the year 2018-19, UGC approved another programme – Accounts and Financial Services (AFS) under Community College Scheme.

The basic objectives of the Skill based education are to develop skills among the students and to create work ready man power in large scale to reduce the growing demand from different industrial sectors. To achieve these objectives Govt. of India launched the National Skills Qualifications Frameworks (NSQF) which is competency based framework that organises qualifications according to a series of knowledge, skill and aptitude. These are ten NSQF levels from Level-1 to Level-10 for awarding certifications. For B.Voc scheme students have to possess skill, knowledge and understanding in a particular job rule in a particular sector. In case of Community College Scheme, the range of NSQF level is from level -4 to level 6 only.
