It is mandatory for all candidates pursuing vocational education to undergo hands-on skills training in prominent industrial units as per the guidelines of Samagra Siksha, Assam, based on the National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF) aligned course curriculum. Samagra Siksha, Assam has been implementing vocational education in various elective subjects like electronics & hardware, automotive, healthcare, tourism & hospitality, IT-ITeS, retail, etc., through National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) training partners.

All candidates pursuing vocational education are imparted theoretical sessions in respective government school premises and are taken to various industrial units like Vishal Mega Mart, APDCL, Pantaloons, Reliance Jio Mart, IORA, Food Craft Institute, etc., for practical training.

The principal of Kahilipara High School, Ritipriya Roy, stated that the visit organised by the school in collaboration with Yuvaan Educative LLP is a crucial step for bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and real-world application. She added that it has inspired the candidates to strive for excellence in their future careers. Skill-based elective subjects help school candidates choose a livelihood and career option very early in their careers and keep them focused on a path. Roy suggested that Samagra Shiksha, Assam, should introduce more such skill-based courses in all government schools.
