Gogoi stresses vocation training for student

Assam Chief Minister on Saturday said that vocational and skill-based training should form a compulsory part of the school curriculum. Launching a joint initiative by global education and media major Pearson and the state government to provide vocational training to school students under the proposed National Vocational Education Qualification Framework (NVEQF) in Guwahati, he said that all students should undergo minimum training in skill-based courses.

He appealed to the youths to give up disruptive politics and bandh culture and instead focus on work to increase the production forces. Under the MoU signed, Pearson will set up vocational skill centres in 10 selected government schools across the state. Initially, two training streams will be offered in retail and computer hardware and IT.
