The Directorate of Employment & Training, DET is working under the Department of Labour and Employment, Government of Gujarat. It was formed in Gujarat State in 1971 by amalgamation of the Employment Wing, functioning under the Labour Commissionerate, and the Vocational Training Scheme under the Directorate of Technical Education. In the beginning, Industrial Training Institutes were functioning under direct control and supervision of the Director General of Employment & Training (DGE&T), New Delhi, Ministry of Labour, Government of India.

Two statutes have been enacted by the Govt. of India to help in achieving the objectives of higher employment in organised sector through training. These are:

(1) The Employment Exchanges Compulsory (Notification of Vacancy) Act, 1959 (C.N.V.Act)
