To shed light on the challenges faced by this post-NEP 2023, we’ve gathered insights from six industry leaders, including CEOs and founders. Their perspectives range from the quality and standardization challenge to the minimal effects on vocational education. Dive into these expert views to understand the landscape of vocational education in the wake of NEP 2023.
Technology Integration Hurdle
A significant challenge observed in this post-NEP 2023 is the integration of technology.
While NEP emphasizes modernizing education, implementing advanced tech in vocational training has been a hurdle. Many institutes struggle with resource allocation and expertise in cutting-edge technologies. At Guru99, we’ve focused on bridging this gap by offering comprehensive online resources and tutorials.
However, the disparity in technological access and digital literacy among various regions remains a concern. We are continuously working to make our content more accessible and practical for vocational training, aligning with NEP’s vision of inclusive and equitable education.
Lack of Industry-Ready Skills
In my view, one significant challenge faced by vocational-education training following implementing NEP 2023 is the lack of industry-ready skills. Vocational courses are designed to make students job-ready, but often, the curriculum fails to align with the rapidly evolving demands of the industry.
This disparity can cause graduates who are under-prepared for the workforce and unable to meet the specific skill requirements of employers. This misalignment calls for a stronger partnership between education providers and industry leaders to ensure the skills taught are relevant, current, and in high demand.
