About TISS

The Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) was established in 1936, as the Sir Dorabji Tata Graduate School of Social Work. The first school of social work in India, TISS was a pioneering effort with the objective of Social Welfare through academic excellence, a characteristic of the Sir Dorabji Tata Trust (SDTT). Its establishment was the result of the decision of the Trustees of the SDTT to accept Dr. Clifford Manshardt’s vision of a post-graduate school of social work of national stature that would engage in a continuous study of Indian social issues and problems and impart education in social work to meet the emerging need for trained human power. This subsequently influenced the direction of social work education and social research in India. In 1944, the Sir Dorabji Tata Graduate School of Social Work was renamed as the Tata Institute of Social Sciences. The year 1964 was an important landmark in the history of the Institute, when it was recognized as a Deemed University by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India.

The approach adopted by TISS-SVE is called the Work Integrated Training Programme (WITP). This Vocational Educational Programme is being implemented for the first time in India with a focus on job-specific skills rather than providing only a broad based education.

Work Integrated Training Programme (WITP) is where you will learn the skill by engaging in on-the-job training at real shop floor of the industry/company.

  • The aim of WITP is to provide you the opportunity to enhance your skills and gain workplace based industry experience as a part of the certification program. For you, the experience is valuable, as training is built around the context of work, enabling you to learn by working and observing.
  • The WITP would further enable you to perform better in the highly technically advanced world by providing you with a platform to learn the duties and responsibilities of various employees while you are a student-trainee at the Industry/Hub.
