The State Government is planning to introduce vocational education in all high schools. School and Mass Education Minister Samir Ranjan Dash said his department will hold talks with educational experts and representatives of 20 different States soon to chalk out plans in this regard.
“Starting from carpentry to mechanical, vocational education covers everything. However, to decide the vocational courses suitable for school students, the department will take suggestions from the experts,” Samir said.
With the proposed new National Education Policy emphasising on introduction of vocational courses in school, the Government’s plan to encourage job- oriented course at school level is seen as move to enhance the employbility of youths.
