Education: How would you remedy the

decline in British Competitiveness?

Improve Tuition has focused this month on British business

competitiveness, and the importance of schools and colleges to

work with industry for its long-term growth.

Educational expert, Gulam Dabhad says: “in the coming years, firms

will require global leaders capable of operating within cultures very

different from what their predecessors were use to.”

Business leaders will be expected to know something about different

cultures of the world to develop strong relationships.

Mr Dabhad added: “neglecting and lacking appreciation of other

cultures could seriously jeopardise our development and risk our


If we don’t develop strong human relationships with people who are

different from us in the  West it could jeopardise and stifle our

future competitiveness in other markets.”

Our increase retaliation from increase foreign competition from India

and China will require a closer approach for education and industry

to work even closer to each other.

We may be getting gold for higher education but we need to install

entrepreneurial and risk taking qualities right from a much earlier

age for the future success of the nation to create jobs.

Education should be at the service of industry and vice versa. They

should work in partnerships and give pupils chances to run virtual

companies and advise them.

Mr Dabhad says: “what is at stake is UK’s future as a successful,

dynamic and prosperous nation.

A much closer relationship between education and industry which

develops the values of entrepreneur and industrialist is necessary if

the UK is retaliate against tough Indian and Chinese competition.”

The Indian government is letting private companies manage its

post-high school faculties with the view of developing closer ties

with industry. Students have opportunities to work with business

therefore developing the skills of the 21st century.

After all our future employment depends on businesses creating

jobs and if we don’t create jobs then we will be unemployed and if

we are unemployed – how will we spend money within the economy

to create more jobs – right?

It’s gloomy but how would you remedy the problem? Let us know

your comments.
