NEC moots regional plan on education

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, July 24 - A regional review meeting on human resource development and employment was held today at the North Eastern Council (NEC) Secretariat in Shillong. The meeting was chaired by W Synrem, Economic Advisor, NEC, said an official press release here.

Attended by senior officers of NEC Secretariat and Planning and line Departments of NE States, the meeting discussed the need to formulate a regional plan on education and skill development.

The need for establishment of a skill development institute in the region was felt by the member States to fulfill the Skilling India Mission of the Government of India. Concern was expressed by members that though the literacy rate in the region is high, the employability is low due to lack of required skill for employment. Therefore, the focus needs to be given for employment-oriented skill training to NE youths.

The issue of migration of NE students to metro and other cities was also discussed. To contain the migration, the participants were of the view that the region needs to have better quality schools and colleges as well as centres of excellence with state of the art facilities for skill development and education.

In order to improve the prospects of more students from the region getting enrolled for technical and professional courses, the need to improve the quality of teachers especially in Mathematics and Science was also emphasised. It was also agreed that a special focus and new thrust on skill development, improvement of quality of education and infrastructure development are urgently required for ensuring a better quality of life for the people of the region.

The action plan to be taken up in the near future for skill development, training and infrastructure development in education, social sector and other related issues in the field of human resource development and employment was also discussed, said the press release.
