Linking education with job new policy’s aim

Linking education with job new policy’s aim

Shimla, September 14

The three main challenges for the implementation of the New Education Policy (NEP) are curriculum, infrastructure and skilled resource development.

Under the NEP, skill development will be integrated in the course curriculum to increase the employability as linking education with employability is the prime focus of the new policy, said Director, Higher Education, Amarjeet Sharma.

Besides skilled resource development, another major challenge would be infrastructure development due to tough topography, harsh and diverse weather conditions and high cost of development in hilly areas, he said.

As prescribed in the NEP, the pre-primary classes were already started in primary schools and the enrollment had breached the 50,000-mark and enough groundwork had been done to introduce Sanskrit from Class II, he added.— TNS
