An Incredible effort by India to modernise education
I see an incredible effort in India around education reform which focuses on
bringing post high-school graduates into the 21st century economy
something the US and UK could take lessons from.
We may face an educational challenge but India faces an overwhelming
education challenge which is in need of enormous immediate improvements
in educating and developing the skills of a very large and diverse population
to all. And it’s reforming it.
A recent positive move by India is the setting up of National Skill Council (NSC)
to work with the Confederation of Indian Industry.
The NSC is rapidly innovating the entire model of vocational education by
modernizing the country’s institutions, curriculum, and faculty to meet the
21st century global economic needs.
Recognising that Polytechs — post-secondary vocational schools — are vital
to the country’s future the government wants to train 500 million people to
develop and master a range of existing and new skills for the Indian Industry
The Indian government has recognized three key
> To overhaul the severely outdated vocational curriculum and
align to meet the needs of industry of today and
> To upgrade post school education which ensures teachers
have the knowledge to teach the skills needed for tomorrows
> To encourage teachers to innovate teaching practices.
These challenges has been met by India using two initiatives, which partners
industry with education.
Partnership 1 — The Indian government is moving the management of
Polytechs to the private sector where private enterprise take charge of the
contract and offer tighter links between faculty and industry — e.g., offer
faculty training opportunities inside the company to develop the skills for
Partnership 2 — The government announcement for setting up new
Polytechs in the hub of industrial centers and providing land to set residence
halls so students. Employers will provide students training in their businesses
and governments are building the state-of-the-art faculty facilities.
These bold efforts that will carry substantial educational and economic benefit
to many and boost India’s international competitiveness which could make it
the tiger economy.
London and Washington recognize today’s educational pitfalls. But what are
we doing differently to address our educational problems?
