Education system and culture as a whole is unable to prepare the youth for the jobs today! Simply put, skill is the ability to do something well or having an expertise in certain activity. In order to start on a right career path and building a successful career in any stream, skills are the most crucial aspect as they lay foundation for any profession. Skills are crucial for finding an employment in the current century. Many of the youth are unable to meet the skill needs of the employer. It is important on part of the educator, to ensure that education itself is skill centric to achieve this paradigm. IIHT Technologies has dedicated its education and training to empower the youth with enhanced skills and intellect and thereby enrich their lives. The skill centric concept is inherent to its Education and Training.
  • 3. How could an education and training institute achieve effective imparting of skills and ensure that the same is imbibed by its students? It is foremost essential to ensure that the imparting of skills is the centre of all the deliverables of any institute. Following the skill school concept could come in hand for this purpose. The skill school concept was built by IIHT to ensure that each of its students has acquired skills, before entering his/her career, during their course. Following steps could be followed to build a concept such as Skill School Keep track of the skills that are imperative to the profession Focus also on secondary and tertiary skills that complement the profession  Study the market for the skills in demand  Course design should be skill centric  Ensure every module of the course is centred at one or more skills  Encourage students to set skill based goals Essential skills for any profession could be easily ascertained by studying the current markets, interviewing professionals, employers and recruiters and keeping a tab on latest advancements and trends in the said profession.

  • 5. It is important even for the students to focus on acquiring each of the skills and gain expertise through practise and perseverance. To ensure students gain such attitude, students should be encouraged in the beginning of the course to analyse their current skills, establish the skills needed specific to profession chosen, chart out skill centred goals and persuaded to create a skill map that guides them in reaching their destination of being skilled and being highly employable. It is important to understand that skills are inexhaustible and acquiring same never ends. Once employed, the new professionals have a huge task to acquire new and relevant skills every day.
