Job oriented higher education needed: Nadda


New Delhi: The immense demographic dividend and potential of the youth can be productively channelized for growth and development of the country only when the higher education system is provided a “job orientation”, Health Minister J.P. Nadda said Saturday.

“Skill upgradation and skill orientation of higher education in the country is a priority area for the government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. A higher education system needs to equip the youth with tools for the job market,” he said in his address at the South Zone Vice Chancellors Conference at Vellore Institute of Technology, an official statement said.

“The focus of the government is to empower the youth of the country with productive skills in order to realise their immense potential in nation building. That is the purpose of the government embarking on a skills development programme by different ministries,” he said.
