    3. 3. Executive Summary Industrial Training Institutes ( ITIs ) are mandated to train India’s vast technical workforce needed for her ever growing industry. There is growing concern about the quality of training imparted in these institutions owing to the problems with the curricula, infrastructure, instruction quality and other issues, including lack of collaborative effort with industry. India urgently needs her ITIs to produce quality technicians for global competitiveness. Towards this objective of improving the ITIs, a number of IITian’s, led by Atul Mathur, have studied the problem at a high level. The outcome is the birth of “ IITians for ITI ”, a Program envisioned to improve ITIs and drive sustainable excellence in India’s vocational training. The PanIIT Organization is uniquely placed to actively help transform India’s ITIs. PanIIT will provide the platform to formulate and implement the Program, which is being designed to afford opportunities for several IITians to participate, from India and the world over.
    4. 4. Executive Summary-Cont’d <ul><li>This concept paper sets out the Program vision, its objectives and outlines the next steps. It helps gain a good understanding of the issues at hand and explains how the many diverse strengths of PanIIT can be effectively leveraged for realizing the Program goals. It also paves the way for further studies and engagements to define and finalize various components of the Program, including its implementation strategy. </li></ul><ul><li>The Program is predicated on the active involvement of IIT alumni around the world in one or more of the hundreds of ITI across the nation. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>IIT alumni located locally will reach out to the ITIs. They will work at mentoring an Institute’s principal, its instructors and will liaise with the local industry. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>IIT alumni located remotely will work on program administration, governance and monitoring. To promote excellence, PanIIT members worldwide will financially contribute for instructor training and student scholarships. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PanIIT organization will work with government agencies and industry associations to clear roadblocks and solicit support. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>All in all, the Program calls for collective team effort and aims to appeal to every IITians’ core value and identity: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Pursuit of excellence in our relentless strife for success in all our initiatives </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Excellence in technical/engineering training and education </li></ul></ul>
