Taking into consideration the current education and
job scenario, appropriate job-related skills complement a formal
degree in any discipline, and increases career opportunities. The
job industry too expects the prospective workforce to come prepared
with specialised skills.
We have an academic-centric education model, which lays less emphasis on job skills and overall development of an individual. This is why increasing number of students are opting to enhance their hard and soft skills, to meet the industry need. Career readiness and employability skills have become an increasingly critical part of education. Employers are desperately seeking people with a combination of skills which not only covers technical or hard skills, but also includes soft skills and life skills.
At the heart of every education model is a desire to help each student be confident and proud in their accomplishments, and successful in their futures. Youth is the driving force in any economy and if trained to their full capacity, can play a vital role in growth of the country. Let us explore how skill training helps student jumpstart their career, prepping them up to be viewed as career-ready and employable.
