Higher Secondary Vocational (Govt. Aided)
The (X+2) Higher Secondary (Vocational) courses are affiliated to the West Bengal State Council for Vocational Education and Training (WBSCVE&T), a statutory body formed under West Bengal Act VII of 2005. This Council is now called West Bengal State Council of Technical & Vocational Education & Skill Development (WBSCT&VESD). Two courses in Engineering and Technology discipline are offered. The subjects are mainly similar to some 1st year Diploma Engineering courses.
Two streams in Engineering & Technology discipline:
Higher Secondary (Vocational) course serves as a springboard to professional technical courses like ITI, Diploma Engineering and B.Tech as the young student gets an opportunity to get an in depth idea of the technical side of education for the first time in his school life.
The H.S. Vocational syllabus is modelled on a combination of H.S. general course and 1st year syllabus of Diploma Engineering courses.
The H.S. (Voc.) certificate has been declared to be equivalent to H.S. general certificate.
Therefore, after successful completion of the course students have an option to set their career journey on any of the two paths with more confidence.
Some students pursue higher studies in B.Sc.(Major), B.Sc.(General) or B.C.A. Courses in Universities. In the last many years, it is seen that most students opt for polytechnics by lateral entry to 2nd year through VOCLET examination. For lateral entry students may only be allowed to apply in the same stream as in H.S.( Voc.). 60% marks in Class XII final exam is required to qualify for VOCLET.
The students may also avail apprenticeship opportunities provided by Board of Practical Training (BOPT), or may choose direct employment under industries or to be self employed.
The course is rigorous both in theory and practicals. Candidates should be ready to undergo practical based classes in technical subjects as well as study in core subjects of Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.
Appropriate Medical fitness is required as the courses are based on Enginering Disciplines.
Minimum 15 years as on 1st January during the session period to be admitted.
From June 2020 to March 2020 ( 10 months each year )
Note- Academic schedule will change this year due to Coronavirus pandemic
How to apply

Procedure of Admission:
Selections would be based on the Madhyamik result as well as performance in the interview to test the overall fitness for technical courses.
Only Madhyamik pass-out students of current academic session are preferred.
Intake : 25 students per stream.
Fees: Class XI – Rs.3,300/- only (Rupees Three Thousand three Hundred only)
Class XII – Rs.3,300/- only (Rupees Three Thousand Three Hundred only)
Class XI – Students are required to appear in the Exam conducted by the Council at the end of the session during March. A student is not promoted to Class XII if he fails in even one subject. Therefore due effort must be made by the student in working hard to pass all subjects especially as they are technical and new to them.
The overall marks of a successful candidate in the entire course of H.S.(Voc.) is calculated in percent/grade as obtained by him in the Class XII examination only conducted by the Council. Mark sheet for Class XII is issued by the Council.
