Assam government launches vocational training in schools

Guwahati, July 23 (IBNS): The Government of Assam (GoA) and global education group Pearson on Monday announced a joint initiative to provide vocational skills training for young people in schools in the state.

This public-private partnership will serve as a platform for the introduction of the National Vocational Education Qualification Framework (NVEQF), a national program to integrate skills, training and qualifications in schools.

Speaking at the launch of the partnership here, Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, said: "I am proud to say that Assam is leading the way in India in preparing today's generation for tomorrow's world."

Under this initiative, Pearson will set up vocational skills centers in 10 specially-selected government schools, initially offering two training streams, in retail and computer hardware and IT.

The design and implementation of the program has seen close collaboration between all stakeholders, from teachers, academic administrators, students, and trainers as well as officials from GoA.

The courses will be introduced for students in standard IX in August 2012, before moving into higher classes with a wider portfolio.

Khozem Merchant - President, Pearson India, said: "We are grateful for the opportunity to work collaboratively with GoA. We both obviously believe that young people in Assam deserve to be fully prepared for the challenges of an incredibly different and dynamic world of work and our common endeavor will be to achieve that objective."



"Vocational education will allow young people to develop rewarding careers in multiple fields in our expanding economy, helping themselves as well as Assam," said Assam Education Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma at the launch of the first skills delivery centre at Kamrup Academy Higher Secondary School in Guwahati.

Present on the occasion was S Ramadorai, advisor to the Prime Minister on National Skill Development Council, who said: "Vocational education in schools will harness the potential of youth and give them many more avenues for employment as adults."
