Quality education in 21st century: An important pillar for nurturing employability quotient among youth
Afifa Ibrahim, Dr. S Mufeed Ahmad
India is a home to one of the largest networks of educational system in the world providing education to millions of youth every year but we can hardly boast of any institutions achieving global standards as revealed by various surveys and studies. It is needless to say that ‘Quality Education’ is the need of the hour as it guarantees the students in achieving what they are good at while ironically emphasis is laid only on giving education but not making them fit for the world of work. This results in students remaining unemployable or satisfying themselves with jobs totally unrelated to their developed skills. Government initiatives through establishment and operating of several central institutions of higher learning are nevertheless bearing fruits, but still a lot needs to be done for the average youth of this country who constitutes our main strength today. The theoretical phenomenon under study looks into quality education provided by higher education in India and their ways to improve it. The study also gives a suggestive road map to enhance quality education for nurturing employability quotient among youth.
