To help students acquire vocational qualifications and get employment once they finish the course, the Education department is planning to provide a 'skill development training' after class XII. Officials of the department said after class X, students opted for Science, Commerce or Humanities streams, but very few opted for vocational courses. As per the proposal, the Education department may enter into an agreement with an organisation to impart 60 days training after class XII exams for 360 hours. The department will provide room for theory and practical classes. After two months of practical training, each student will be able to use all tools, equipment and gadgets required for a job in their vocational course. Every student will also get jobs with salaries starting at Rs 7,000 per month.
Subject expert Sunil Bedi said, "The department will soon float tenders to invite and engage companies, firms and organisations that would help providing training for these students and also the placements. By April 1, we will launch the training programme."
