Training of Trainers (TOT) Process Note

SCOPE: Training of Trainers - RASCI Certified Trainers/ Experienced Trainers/ Fresh Trainers

Objectives:
• To ensure that each trainer is certified on National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF)-aligned
Qualifications Pack/National Occupations Standards (QP/NOS) prior to training batch
commencement across skilling verticals.

• To ensure quality training delivery aligned with the QP/NOS.

• To enhance the horizon of knowledge & skills of trainees to impact employability.

• To create a cadre of competent NSQF-certified trainers in the Retail Industry for sustained
learning and skill transformation.

TOT Overview:
 Defined entry level requirements – Trainers shall be permitted to undergo the TOT
programme on establishing their eligibility. Eligibility criteria for trainers based on a
combination of educational qualification and relevant industry experience has been defined
on job role basis by RASCI.
 Training of trainers have been classified into two training models based on defined pre-
screening criteria:
 An existing trainer (Recognition of Prior Learning [RPL] Mode)
• An existing trainer is the one who meets the requisite education qualification,
relevant industry experience, and possess a minimum of 1 year of training
experience.
• Acknowledging the experience of an existing trainer in the Indian Vocational
Education Training (VET) system, the existing trainer is required to undergo RPL
mode of TOT for certification. RPL mode includes just the assessment and
certification.
 A new trainer (Normal Mode)
• A new trainer is the one who meets the pre-requisite criteria defined by RASCI.
• A new trainer would have to undergo Normal mode of TOT i.e. a 10-day long
programme, wherein applicant would be oriented and certified on domain skills
as well as training delivery skills (Platform skills).
 Standardized structure of TOT models and recommended fee for training and assessment
 Availability of pre-read materials
 Trainer qualification has been linked to the NSQF, getting a recognized certificate would lead
to better trainer’s professional recognition, higher esteem, and demonstration of
competence to employers.
 Certification of TOT is a two-layered process – Layer 1 is Domain certification and layer 2 is
on platform skills.
 Grading system for Trainers is provided based on the defined assessment criteria
