1default The growing need for Vocational Education on Fri Oct 05, 2012 6:20 pm


The growing need for Vocational Education
is a process which empowers a student to think for himself/herself and
make his/her decisions in life. However, the present day education
system puts emphasis on rote-learning and unhealthy competition. This
often leads students to depression and even suicide at times. However,
if a student is allowed to pursue his/her own interests then their
personalities would bloom and they would also be successful in their

There exists a disparity between market demands and the skills of India’s educated youth.
example, every year 650,000 engineering graduates pass out of whom
nearly two thirds need to be re-skilled, so that they can get jobs in
the industry. The developed world requires knowledge workers and skilled
professionals. By 2020, the developed world will have a shortage of 40
million working people, says a report.

These figures reveal the
shortage of skilled man power in India in comparison to the jobs
existing in the market. This mismatch occurs due to many reasons.

A few of them are as follows:
A. Low motivation amongst students to pursue vocational education
B. The rigid mindset of parents and educators in accepting vocational courses
C. Many vocational courses that are being offered have become obsolete
There is poor linkage between institutions offering vocational courses
and the private sector. Students often find it difficult to secure
proper employment immediately after completing their courses.

order to keep up with the market demands of India, students should be
encouraged to take up vocational education. They should be allowed to
study the subjects they like. Teachers and parents must become more open
minded about students’ career and life choices. There should be enough
infrastructure to support vocational education. Educational institutes
could link up with Companies and Corporations so that students can be
employed soon after they complete their studies. These are a few ways in
which the gap between vocational education and market demand for
skilled manpower can be bridged.
