  • are focused on skills, knowledge, understanding and attitudes/values.
  • describe observable, demonstrable and assessable performance.
  • are broader in scope than a mere list of specific tasks or skills.
  • enable the learners to acquire competencies, which are recognized by the industry all over the country through competency standards set under NVQF.
  • offer greater prospective of employability to the learners.
  • enable the informal skilled workers to get their skills assess and certified through recognition of prior learning and current competencies. 
  • involve industry in all the steps of training delivery right from designing the skills to assessment and placement of the skilled workers.
  • allow flexibility in the movement of learners from one institution to another.
