The education system in India is very basic and standardized which means that the Government appoints experts or agencies who draw up the curriculum for studying. The teachers then teach the same to the students from the textbooks and the students have to by heart these notes and give an hour long exam. The students are then accessed based on the marks obtained by them in these exams.
This has been going on since many years in India which in itself fails to recognize the true potential and talent of kids in India beyond the system.
This system is being revolutionized by a new education system known as Finished model of education which is slowly growing in India.
In the Finished Model of education students are taught using practical methods and are encouraged to use their common sense.
This education system believes in learning by doing. This will bring a major change in our education system as more and more children will resort to learning things practically.
Along with the Finish Model of Education the NEP 2020 has taken a significant step of shifting its focus to skill based education.
Skill based education is the need of the hour. Multiple projections indicate that more than half of employees will require extensive retraining and upskilling. Not just in terms of technical ability, such as knowledge of emerging technologies like artificial intelligence. However, soft skills such as communication, attention to detail, and listening must also be improved.
The employment opportunities in Industries such as intelligent automation and artificial intelligence are on a rise and it is said that these industries are expected to disrupt the global workforce, necessitating the reskilling of up to 120 million workers.
Global megatrends will continue to have an impact on 61% people’s employment. As a result, many people devote considerable time to honing their skills. The vast majority of people are also eager to learn new skills in order to be more competitive job candidates.
According to the latest upskilling Outlook in India report by Great Learning, 79% of professionals including freshers are planning to upskill in their career.
It is important to consider upskilling with a dual standpoint;
Employees with the most important skillsets having both hard and soft skills are the ones who can lead to organizational success.
The best candidates will always gravitate toward companies that offer upskilling and reskilling opportunities. Employers who provide professional development through on-the-job mentoring to help employees advance their careers in ways such as using business analyst skills to advance to the role of enterprise architect are in high demand. As a result, learning opportunities can serve as an effective tool for employer branding.
