Mr. Aseem Chauhan, Chancellor, Amity University, Rajasthan stressed that with the growing un-employability amongst the graduating youth, vocational skills are very much in the minds of everyone in the country including Indian Government. The Government of India aims to vocationally train 50 million youth in a short period of time but there are very few quality educational Institutes that are offering vocational training in India. He expressed hope that Amity, together with TAFE South Australia and Heraud Education Trust, would create a revolution in the area of vocation education and skill enhancement in India by designing and developing innovative and different models of instruction and delivery of vocational education.
