Kapil Sibal plans user-friendly education


If you are sure you want to be in animation, graphic design or hospitality, and don’t get the point why you need to slog through maths, biology or economics in classes 11 and 12 to get there, here is good news for you. Union minister for human resource development Kapil Sibal is planning to introduce vocational studies as a stream in senior secondary classes for all educational boards. The stream will be on a par with the science, commerce and arts streams.

The Centre is discussing the matter with state and all-India boards, a ministry official said, adding most states have accepted the proposal. Once the Council of Boards of School Education in India approves the stream, it will be mandatory for all government, aided and private schools in the country to introduce it, he said.

The vocational studies stream is already part of the Central Board of School Education, which introduced it in 2016.

Sibal said the move is keeping in mind the job market’s requirement of skilled human resource. “Not all children want to do BA, BSc or BCom. There is no point forcing them to go for higher education in traditional subjects if they are not keen on them,” he said. “A large number of students want to acquire ordinary skills that can enable them to secure employment.

“There is also great demand for skilled human resource by the industry. Introducing vocational training will help it deal with skills shortage and make youngsters employable even as they pass school.”

Students taking up the stream will be given a “certificate” degree, equivalent to that from the industrial training institutes. They can also pursue graduation like students from the traditional streams.
“Vocational education will be in collaboration with industry, starting with course design, teaching and work experience,” the ministry official said.

The government will also start 100 model vocational schools, many of which will run on the public-private partnership model.
