A Job-Ready Education In India

“No one can get anything unless he earns it. This is an eternal law. We may sometimes think it is not so, but in the long run we become convinced of it”, said the great Indian monk Swami Vivekananda. In the context of the title of this post, it is apparent to note the similarity and it makes sense to comment that a student is required to “earn a job-ready education” in India, more than relying on the education being offered to him/her. tweet

Taking into consideration the diversity of Indian culture and population, it comes down to individual-effort and personal-drive to earn a job-ready education. One can achieve one’s job-getting goals by taking resort to learning basic skill-sets that enable students with a job-ready education in India. tweet

Several mass-education schemes implemented by the Indian Government have been instrumental in increasing students’ enrollment in learning basic professional skills as part of college curriculum. However, given the market-demands of a thriving economy, the impact remains meagre. Such a scenario inspires students to take the responsibility upon one’s own two shoulders and take charge, to create personal impact in the professional world. tweet

India’s emphasis, from the first Five-year Plan onwards, was to develop a pool of scientifically inclined manpower. India’s National Policy on Education (NPE) provisioned for an apex body for regulation and development of higher technical education, which came into being as the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) in 1987 through an act of the Indian parliament. Nevertheless, in 2007, the Prime Minister of India re-iterated: “Our university system is, in many parts, in a state of disrepair…In almost half the districts in the country, higher education enrollments are abysmally low, almost two-third of our universities and 90 per cent of our colleges are rated as below average on quality parameters… I am concerned that in many states university appointments, including that of vice-chancellors, have been politicised and have become subject to caste and communal considerations, there are complaints of favouritism and corruption”. tweet

To emerge and go beyond such nepotism in education systems in India, students are required to open eyes to job-requirements, and thereby embrace innovative education models alongside college curriculum. Doing so, students will empower themselves with the much-needed job-ready education, with confidence. tweet
