CBSE has also issued a list of 25 Model ITIs along with a list of 400 other ITIs. The schools have been asked to approach any of these as per their suitability. The list covers ITIs from 26 states including Delhi. Though the list covers 400 ITIs, there are not any mentioned in and around Sikkim, Manipur, Nagaland, and Mizoram. This puts students from these states studying vocational streams in class 12 at a disadvantage.
This move is based on the recommendations of the report of the 'Group of Secretaries - 5'. The recommendations in the report are particularly focused toward promoting English and Science in school education.
Some of the other recommendations by the Group include English as a compulsory subject from class 6 to class 10 in all schools and at least one English medium school in every block.
