In order to build a better future for students, Jharkhand Governor CP Radhakrishnan is pushing universities to go for a job-oriented curriculum.
Jharkhand Governor C P Radhakrishnan emphasised the importance of a job-oriented curriculum in universities during a review meeting with vice-chancellors and registrars from various universities in the state.
The governor urged universities to focus on equipping students with the necessary skills and knowledge to secure employment opportunities. This initiative aims to create a better future for students by aligning educational programs with industry demands.
ENCOURAGING EMPLOYMENT-FOCUSED EDUCATION
Governor Radhakrishnan stressed the need for universities to prioritise job-oriented education. He emphasised that simply awarding degrees is not enough and that universities should have a clear vision, mission, and goals in line with the current job market requirements.
“Universities will have to work in the direction of how students get employment after studies. The varsities should have a proper work plan. We have to understand the need of the hour,” he said.
By developing a proper work plan, universities can ensure that students are well-prepared for the professional world upon completion of their studies.
SHIFT IN UNIVERSITY APPROACH
The governor’s call for a job-oriented curriculum signifies a shift in the traditional approach to higher education. The focus is now on integrating practical skills, industry exposure, and relevant knowledge into the syllabus.
This shift aims to bridge the gap between academia and industry, allowing students to seamlessly transition into the workforce.
Governor Radhakrishnan also highlighted the importance of recognising the best-performing and improving universities.
By acknowledging and appreciating their efforts, the governor aims to motivate institutions to enhance their educational standards and continuously improve the quality of education provided to students.
