With the shrinking job prospects and the unemployment crisis taking a toll across the country despite the formal degrees is an ultimatum that a strict policy is the need of the hour to save the future of the youths so that they do not go haywire.
Also, the growing trend of unemployment apparently calls for an alternative career solution for sustainability catering to the need of the students and vocational education is actually taking the center stage for various reasons.
Gone are the days when children graduate from a well-established institute and immediately get hired at job places. The scenarios have changed because the recruiters now are looking for technical experts in diverse fields which does not go parallel with the college learned theories.
In an employability report published in the month of March, this year claimed that an alarming 80% of Indian engineers were unemployable as they do not possess the technical skills required in the market.
To keep up with the change in trends of the market, vocational education is a guiding force for the future of our youths. So the government should take serious steps in bringing a legit policy breaking the age-old tradition.
How this works is not very formal. There are numerous courses for students that they can apply where their skills are polished. With India signing a pact with Germany on skill development and vocational training, the Assam government should work towards setting up training centres. A long turn mechanism on the vocational training is the need of the hour.
Amid the hullabaloo of the job crisis in Assam, students and fresh graduates can actually look for opportunities in the technical field so that the economy of the state is maintained and also sustain the future of the youths.
