Employability & Life Skills Model
In the current scenario of increased urbanization and rampant globalization, the children hitherto are a confused lot. There is a lot of stress on achievement and performance from the teachers and parents. The focus of the current education system is on what the child doesn’t know rather than on what the child knows. Sir Ken Robinson, British author and international advisor on education, says that the educational system works like a factory. Education system is based on the model of mass production and conformity, and views the child as the product of the mechanical system.
During the last three decades young people’s worlds have changed radically. There has been a decline in manufacturing industry, growth of service sector and explosion of information as well as information technology. Though the employment market is getting broader with each passing day, the criteria for hiring are getting narrower as the organizations are now becoming more concerned about the quality of their employees in which a significant part is a Fresher. The organizations are looking for mature, becoming & illustrative candidates. While a college degree gives the right qualification to a student, it may not help get the right job. There is a wide gap between the skills that the young people are being equipped with through formal education system, and the skills that they need to build a future for themselves.
Aspiring People has taken a step in this direction and launched programs for universities and higher education institutes. Through our program we intent to bridge the gap between the skills provided by the formal education system and the skills required by youth for a buoyant career and blissful life.
