Literacy is no longer just restricted to education but skills have broadened the horizons. These include technical, vocational, digital and other such skills which are important for employment and earning a livelihood. A conducted survey reveals that only some of the Indian workforce has undergone the skill development program when, India needs a much higher skilled workforce.
Today, many organisations prefer skilled employees over unskilled as they are proficient in working and demonstrate intensive productivity with 100% quality that deliver outstanding results.
Modiji in his speech said that in the 21st century, and in this rapidly growing and changing world, India has to play an effective role and we will have to change ourselves rapidly. And with the same thought, for innovation, research, design, development, & for enterprise, the required ecosystem is getting ready at a faster speed. Lot of emphasis is being put on Quality of Education, taking the technology ahead, an education system fulfilling the needs of the 21st century is equally important. Critical Thinking, Creativity, Collaboration, Curiosity, Communication, Coding, AI, Internet of things, Cloud computing, Data Science, Robotics are the 21st Century skills that youth should develop in order to increase their career opportunities as mentioned by Modiji in his speech. Recently the New Education Policy has been finally launched after 5 long years of thorough discussion, debate and research that has been made taking into consideration, the needs, wishes, expectations and ambitions of the youth. The New Education Policy is an actual reflection of the Youth’s aspirations.
