This study considers the drivers and meanings behind the dramatic rise of TVET in the policy and political agenda of India. It explores assumptions about the existing traditions and character of India’s culture and cultures of skills development. There is a paucity of long-term research on the TVET/skills development sector, although the recent growth in interest may remedy this in the long term. Skill acquisition in the informal sector may lack an explicit commitment to train, but may facilitate learning on the job.
