NWAC believes that all students must get equal opportunities to progress and grow. Lots of students are not in a position to complete their 12-year formal schooling, because they have to join the workforce earlier than others so that they can support their families. Many such students are either primary or secondary breadwinners for their families and once they become a part of the workforce, their education takes a backseat forever. Not that these students have much of a choice, however not completing their school education creates a visible drawback for them at later stages of their careers and lives. One such category of students, who have contributed immensely and efficiently to the workforce and are a sizeable proportion in all states around India, is the Industrial Training Institute, ITI students. The concept of ITI (on the principle of Craftsmen Training Scheme) was introduced in 1950 to create opportunities for Indian youth through skill-building and vocational training. ITIs have trained millions of people and have been actively involved in nation-building by churning out trained and skilled individuals who not only positively impact the economic status of their families, but over the years, have also contributed to the growing industrialization of our country. Since the eligibility for joining ITI courses is Grade 10 school education, most such ITI qualified students never go back to school again to complete their Grade 12, and get absorbed in the daily routine of earning their livelihood.
Although ITI in itself is sufficient to impart the skill that the student requires for jobs in a particular trade, ITI will never be able to replace Grade 12 qualification, and not completing Grade 12 may become a limitation for the student in one or more ways, including the ones below:
NWAC believes that ITI students must be provided an exclusive opportunity to complete their formal schooling and achieve the status of being Grade 12 PASS because:
All students who have successfully completed their ITI 2-year training or are in their last semester of training are ELIGIBLE to apply for completion of their Grade 12 level through NWAC American High School Program and are encouraged to begin their registration process. A student must be at least 16 years of age and not more than 60 years of age at the time of registration with NWAC.
NWAC works on the American system of credit-completion and hence provides maximum respect and recognition to the academic work that the student has already completed during the 2-year ITI training. The opportunity for ITI students is such that THEY HAVE TO APPEAR IN ONLY 3 SUBJECTS (One Regional Language, Environmental Studies & Physical Education) and successfully qualify only one examination in each of these 3 subjects to complete their Grade 12 equivalent.
With NWAC, ITI students have many advantages, but one of the major advantages is that a single registration for a student is valid for 3 attempts (or 18 months, whichever is earlier). This implies that NWAC is focused on providing maximum opportunity to such students so that they may keep supporting their families.
