‘School education not enough, skill development

‘School education not enough, skill development must’

Delhi chief minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday underlined the necessity of skill development programmes and said that school education is not enough for the students to get jobs and sustain in this competitive world.
“Our government has decided to put more focus on skill development courses to ensure better employment opportunities for young people in the city,” Ms Dikshit said.While speaking after conferring Indira Awards for the year 2012 to teachers, students and schools at a function organised by the education department, Ms Dikshit emphasised on the need for imparting job-oriented course to youngsters.
“Our government has already decided to set up a world class institute on skill development with technical expertise and assistance from Singapore government. The centre would be set up at Jonapur in South Delhi, officials said, adding the institute would be modelled on the Institute of Technical Studies in Singapore,” she said. The Singapore government had offered to provide technical expertise to the proposed institute during Ms Dikshit’s visit to that country in October last year.
Complimenting the education department, Ms Dikshit said government schools have outshone public schools in Delhi in respect of results in Class 10 and 12.
“The education system in Delhi has been transformed to facilitate all-round development of students. In fact, Delhi government schools are now even considered better than the public schools and Kendriya Vidyalayas,” she added.
She presented the “Best School chief minister’s trophy” to Sarvodaya co-education vidyalaya, Rohini. The award carries a cash prize of Rs. 1 lakh and a citation.
