Objectives of Electrical and Electronics Technology (NVCET)


Vocational education in electrical and electronics education prepares students to work as electrical technicians. Vocational education is sometimes referred to as career and technical education.

The General Education component of the curriculum aims at providing the trainee with complete secondary education in critical subjects like English Language, Economics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Entrepreneurial Studies and Mathematics to enhance the understanding of machines, tools and materials of their trades and their application and as a foundation for post-secondary technical education for the above-average trainee.

Hence, it is hoped that trainees who successfully complete their trade and general education may be able to compete with their secondary school counterparts for direct entry into the polytechnics or colleges of education (Technical). The Social Studies component is designed to broaden the trainee’s social skills and their understanding of the environment.

Technical and Vocational Education and Training serves multiple purposes. A key purpose is the preparation of youth for work. This takes the form of learning and developing work-related skills and mastery of underlying knowledge and scientific principles. Work is broadly defined and therefore refers to both formal employment and self-employment. To support self-employment, TVET curricula often include entrepreneurship training. Related to this is the social reproduction and transformation of occupational and vocational practices

From a development point of view, TVET facilitates economic growth by increasing the productivity of workers. The returns from increased output far exceed the costs of training, direct and indirect, leading to economic growth.

TVET like any other form of education also facilitates socio-economic development by enhancing the capacity of individuals to adopt practices that are socially worthwhile.

As a form of education similar to all others, TVET aims to develop a broad range of personal capabilities that characterize an educated person. Thus, the provision of broad-based knowledge seeks to ensure critic-creative thinking.

TVET also aims at developing capacities for effective communication and effective interpersonal relations
