School of Skill Education (SSE) 

The School of Skill Education (SSE) was set up by Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) in December 2011 to impart skill education to millions of youth in India by training/skilling them in core industry relevant job competencies through appropriately designed (market oriented) Skill educational programmes with the vision to create sustainable sources of income that would promote better employability, better livelihood, a brighter future and subsequently contribute to the economy of the nation.

Each of the Bachelor’s programmes offered is a direct outcome of India’s recognition of the importance of skilling the youth to meet the industrial demands for skilled workforce. The work integrated programmes incorporate the skill sector specific job roles and their corresponding National Occupational Standards (NOS). The curriculum focuses on a holistic education that integrates general knowledge, Skill knowledge and job-specific skills through a combination of classroom sessions (for general education and domain knowledge) and practical skill training.
