    1. Introduction The National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF) The MHRD, Govt. of India, initiated the process of revamping the Centrally Sponsored Scheme of Vocationalisation of Secondary Education in 2011, which was launched in 1988 at senior secondary level in majority of States of the country. In view of changing scenario and corresponding demands for the world of work, India announced National Skill Development Mission for Skilling India in 2007. This led to the conceptualization of qualification framework to establish a system of set educational pathways for providing horizontal and vertical linkages to vocational education program in the country from school to university system. Thus, National Vocational Education Qualification Framework (NVEQF) was proposed to be developed. In 2012, the MHRD launched NVEQF in school system as pilot project in Haryana. This vocational qualification framework in school system has proposed four levels i.e. L1 to L4 for classes 9th to 12th

    respectively. The NVEQF is modular in design and competency and outcome based skill development system. The NVEQ levels 1 and 2 are for work readiness or preparation by acquiring entry level competencies of the job role in the particular sector. The basis of assessment of the outcome as development of competencies is based on the set criteria in form of National Occupational Standards (NOS) which are developed by NSDC (Sector Skill Council of the sector concerned) in consultation with industry for particular job role. This connect of education to the world of work through PPP mode, is a step forward towards Scale, Skill and Speed. According to the notification of Govt. of India in 2013, NVEQF has been subsumed as National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF) under National Skill Development Agency (NSDA). According to NSDA the objectives of NSQF are:

    To create a workforce empowered with the necessary and continuously upgrade skills, knowledge and internationally recognized qualification to gain access to decent employment and ensure Indias competitiveness in the dynamic global market.

    It aims at increasing the productivity and employability of workforce (wage and self employed) both in organized and the unorganized sector.

    It seeks increased participation of youth, women, disabled and other disadvantaged sections and to synergise efforts of various sectors and reform the present system with the enhanced capability to adapt to changing technologies and labour market demands.

    The Competency Based Curriculum Competency is defined in terms of what a person is required to do (performance), under what conditions it is done and how well it is to be done (standards). It can be broadly categorized into foundational, practical and reflexive competencies. Generic competencies are considered essential for a person to participate effectively in the workforce, whereas technical competencies are an individuals knowledge and expertise in the specific group task and its processes besides its rules and regulations. The term curriculum (plural: curricula or curriculums) is derived from the latin word for race course, referring to the course of deeds and experiences through which children grow to become more mature adults. A competency based curriculum describes what learners must know and be able to do by the end of a program or study. It identifies the competencies and sub- competencies each learner is expected to master. It states clearly the criteria and conditions by which performance will be assessed. It also defines the learning activities that will lead to the learner to achieve mastery of the targeted learning outcome. The Competency Based Curriculum is broken down into coherent parts known as Units. Each unit is further broken down into knowledge and skills on the basis of which evidence is to be provided by the learner and the evaluation is to be done by teacher or trainer.

    2. About the Sector Agriculture is the cultivation of plants, fungi, and other life forms for food, fiber, medicinal and other products used to sustain and enhance human life. It also includes livestock production which provides milk and meat products, fibers and other raw materials. The major agricultural products can be broadly grouped into foods, fibers, fuels, meat, spices and raw materials. Fibers include cotton, wool, hemp, silk and flax. Agriculture and allied sectors, like forestry and fisheries in India accounted for 13.7% of the GDP (Gross Domestic Product) in 2013. India is the world's largest producer of many fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, major spices fresh meat, fibrous crops, such as jute. India is the second largest producer of wheat and rice, the world's major food staples. Over one third of the world's workers are employed in agriculture, second only to the service sector. In India agriculture employs about 50% of the total workforce. The Ministry of Agriculture is the main authority in India for regulation and development of activities relating to agriculture, horticulture, fishing, animal husbandry, etc. It is implementing various schemes and policies for the sector through its various departments and institutions, including Department of Agriculture and Cooperation and Department of Animal Husbandry, Dairying and Fisheries. The Ministry of Food Processing Industries is actively engaged in promotion of entrepreneurial activities in the segments of fruits and vegetables processing, fish processing, mushroom processing, honey processing, etc. Besides, commodity boards, like tea board, coffee board, rubber board, medicinal plants board, etc. have been set up to boost the growth of the sectors like tea, coffee, rubber, medicinal plants, respectively. There exists innumerable business opportunities in the agriculture and allied sectors. Education and training in agriculture meet the requirements of industries that employ educated personnel and also prepare people for undertaking farming and allied activities. Higher education in agriculture is required for meeting the needs of human resource needed for conducting research, teaching and training. Introduction of vocational courses in agriculture is seen as a strategy to create educated and productive workforce who will employ scientific methods for promoting sustainable agriculture. It is with this view the Govt. of India has brought this neglected sector under the umbrella of National Skill Development Mission. The constitution of Agriculture Skill Council of India (ASCI) under the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) is a step forward for skill development initiative through formal and non-formal system of education and training under NSQF and STAR/ Ajeevika schemes respectively. Consequently, job roles have been identified and National Occupational Standards have been developed by ASCI in prominent agriculture areas where there is demand for skilled human resource and/ or job opportunities for self and wage employment. It is encouraging to note that many states are coming forward to offer agriculture based vocational courses in secondary and senior secondary classes under NSQF as per job roles identified by ASCI. There is a need to develop curricula for these job roles. In school system under NSQF the curriculum is required for L1 to L4 to introduce these courses from class 9th to class 12th respectively. Hence, the PSSCIVE has decided to develop curricula for four levels viz., L-1 Basic Agriculture, L-2 Applied Agriculture, L-3 and L-4 for job roles ; Paddy Farmer, Sugarcane Cultivator, Dairy Worker, Hatchery Production Worker, and Micro-Irrigation Technician. 3. Objectives of the Course Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

    1. Identify components of sprinkler irrigation system 2. Identify different types of sprinklers and their use in different crops 3. Understand field layout of different types of sprinkler systems

    4. Course Structure This course (vocational qualification package) is a planned sequence of instructions consisting of the following 08 modules, called as Units.

    Successful completion of 150 hours of theory sessions and 150 hrs of practical activities and on-the-job learning is to be done for full qualification.

    5. Classroom Activities Classroom activities are an integral part of this programme and interactive lecture sessions, followed by discussions should be conducted by teachers. A variety of instructional strategies should be used by teachers to ensure learning of students. Teachers should make lesson plan topic wise along with different strategies to be used in the class room /laboratory/workshop. The class room activities may include use of multi-media packages, preparation of charts and posters and organising group discussion sessions targeted to problem solving, innovative ideas in handling the job role, developing communication and entrepreneurial skills etc.

    6. Practical Activities

    materials. OJT should be undertaken in a structured manner with a training plan under the supervision of an experienced trainer or supervisor. A training plan that reflects tasks to be performed and competencies to be imparted should be prepared and signed by the student, teacher, and supervisor at the workplace for training of the students in the organization/industry. The job role i.e. understanding basics of agriculture, crop production practices and management related tasks to be undertaken at the work place during OJT may include:

    Preparation of field for layout of sprinkler irrigation system Assistance in the installation of sprinkler irrigation system Operating control valve to maintain the proper pressure and discharge in the system Operation of fertilizer injector under supervision Cleaning of laterals/ nozzles Proper fitting of couplers Maintenance of leakage of water in main/ sub-main and nozzles

    The trainer should break down all the steps of the job and train the students as per the training plan. In a structured OJT, the following steps should be followed: Step 1: The Instructor or the trainer tell, show, demonstrate, and explain. The trainer gives an

    overview of the task while explaining the constructional details and use of the tools, equipment, materials, etc. in performing the tasks.

    Step 2: The Instructor or the trainer demonstrates each step in detail, actually doing the steps of the task and explaining each step, one at a time, while the trainee watches. The steps may not necessarily be demonstrated in the sequence of actual operation, as sometimes it is better that simple tasks are demonstrated first to build confidence. Showing finished products at each appropriate step will help the leaner understand what is required as outcome. While demonstrating, the trainer explains why each step is done in the way it is done.

    Step 3: It involves direct trainee participation. The trainer monitors the progress on a checklist of competencies and offers feedback and pointers where and when needed.

    Step 4: The trainee practices with clearly defined targets for performance standards.

    8. Certification Upon completion of this course, the State Board of Secondary Education and Agriculture Skill Council of India (ASCI) will give joint certification for acquiring and verifying competencies developed by the candidate as per NOS developed by ASCI.

    10. Assessment Guide Assessment is a process used for determining an individual's progress or level of mastery/competence in an occupational area. It may be formative (continuous) and/or summative (final). It is a process of collecting evidence and making judgement about the extent to which a person demonstrates the knowledge and skills set out in the standards or learning outcomes of a unit of competency. Assessment should be done on the basis of information or evidence about the individuals ability against clearly stated objectives or standards. A diversity of assessment methods is required to achieve the multiple purposes and to satisfy the requirements of competency based assessment. Appropriate evidence is to be collected from activities that can be clearly related to the Units of Competency. It should cover all the elements and performance criteria/indicators in the competency standards. Students achievements should be assessed by using the following methods of assessment.

    1. Practical test: It allows candidates to demonstrate application of skills in simulated or real work conditions against competency standards (skill and academic standards).

    2. Oral test/ viva voce: It allows candidates to demonstrate communication skills and content knowledge. Audio or video recording can be done at the time of oral test or viva voce.

    3. Portfolio: It is a compilation of documents that supports the candidates claim of competence that was acquired from prior learning and experience. Documents (including photos, newspaper articles, reports, etc.) of practical experience in the workplace or the community and photographs of the products prepared by the candidates related to the units of competency should be included in the portfolio.

    4. Project: Projects (individual or group projects) are a great way to assess the practice skills on a deadline, but these should be given on the basis of the capability of the individual to perform the tasks or activities involved in the project. Projects should be discussed in the class and the teacher should periodically monitor the progress of the project and provide feedback for improvement and innovation.

    5. Direct Observation: Direct observation requires a considerable degree of commitment from the observer and those being observed. Employability skills evaluation listed below in the table should be evaluated through direct observation by the teacher/ trainer and appropriate records should be maintained for transparency in evaluation.
