Skill based education sector

on Wed Oct 04, 2017 1:19 pm
Education is the biggest problem for parents in INDIA since years. There are students who study only to score marks in exams, and sometimes to crack exams like IIT JEE, AIIMS or CLAT. In India, where most of the students are spending their parent’s life savings and borrowed money on education – and even then not getting standard education, and struggling to find employment of their choice & at the end sometimes drives students to commit suicide. To boost employment and employability, India must capitalize on its youth for growth in skills based education sector. Also India’s PM Narendra Modi has been motivating Indian youth to be a skill base worker and he is also supporting a campaign MAKE IN INDIA. “Give a man a fish and you feed him one day, teach him how to catch fishes and you feed him for a lifetime.” I believe that if you teach a man a skill, it would help him for lifetime. Knowledge is largely forgotten after the semester exam is over but skill based education like Physical education, yoga, electrical mechanics, car mechanics, AC repairs, carpentry, health workers, plumbers, stitching, embroidery, painting, plumbing etc it would help them for lifetime. After all the aim of any education is to make a person capable of working, earning and living a life of dignity. These skills could enrich a person’s life, lift him or her out of poverty and thus make a significant difference in the quality of their lives.

I would like to speak about education in general and why it is so Important. If we look at the definition of education the first thing comes up is.The process of receiving or giving systematic instruction, especially at a school or university.This is something We Are all very familiar with from childhood to adult. This is very important we learn reading writing math and General problem-solving among some of the other things that is a Must to function in this world we live in today no matter where you are. Second definition of education is an enlightening experience. The action or state of attaining or having attained spiritual knowledge or insight,I believe education is knowledge knowledge with experience is wisdom. Wisdom is that that leads to enlighten.When we leave this earth we take nothing with us but what we have learned here and experienced.So with that being said.I think it is the most important thing to do is to never stop learning!

Teachers who love teaching, they say, teach children to love learning. Teaching may have been sidelined but the slowing down of Singapore’s economy in recent years has led to a focus on education, specifically skill development. The government’s newly constituted SkillsFuture programme aims to equip citizens with skills necessary to survive an economic transition.


The emphasis on skill development has put the focus back on the education sector. In 2016, the government allotted S$12.8 billion for education—double the amount allocated 10 years ago. Hiring too is steady—a fact corroborated by the Monster Employment Index in April 2016, which registered a 6% year-on-year growth for education.


If you’re looking for a career in education, you’ll need:



Good academic record
If you intend to teach others, you should have been a good student yourself. A good academic record is a prerequisite for most careers in the education sector. Teacher jobs normally have a minimum cut-off that is higher than in other sectors.



Great communication skills
Teaching is all about effective communication, which makes this skill a key attribute for a successful career. The ability to communicate complex ideas simply and precisely is the foundation of any teaching exercise.



Patience
Teaching requires plenty of patience. A good teacher is prepared to explain things over and over again until the last person in the room understands the concept.



Kindness
Like patience, kindness is a defining trait of a good teacher. A teacher must be sensitive to the needs of students and be ready to guide them with empathy and wisdom.



Enthusiasm
Good educators never lose their enthusiasm despite teaching the same thing over and over again. In fact, quality teachers are creative and find new and interesting ways to teach students.



Positivity
The best teachers are full of positive energy and always encourage students. They realize that different pupils have different talents and are accommodative of quirks and follies.



Discipline
A teacher must know when to enforce discipline. It is important for teachers to inculcate a sense of discipline in students by enforcing strict order and exercising control.


A good teacher can ignite the imagination and give students wings. If you are one of those who take legitimate pride in the achievements of others, a life in the education sector could be for you. A teacher’s success, after all, is measured by the achievements of students!
