In order to support education to those people who leave their studies in mid-way for employment, Government to set up new policy this month called “’Credit-Equivalent Transfer System”.
Under this system, people who will be able to resume their studies who had left it mid-way to get a job. Human Resource Development Minister Ms. Smriti Irani says that to improve our education condition in the country we will have to review our education policies and make the necessary changes. A major step is to start the Credit Transfer System.
To make us understand it, she presented her own example and said that she was a working professional and fell out of the education system in order to retain her job. This is the situation maximum people face in the country. In the absence of Credit Transfer System, many individuals who take up employment are unable to continue their studies.
It will be launched on November 11th, which will be observed as Education Day in India. It will be the first time in India that an education policy will be launched to continue your education which you couldn’t have done due to your job. The new system would help transfer of credit from one educational institution to another. This credit transfer system would be from class IX onwards to begin with and in January 2015 it would be for up to Ph.D programmes. The new system will help people to get back to their education whenever they want to. Central universities have been advised to have a seamless credit transfer system across the country.
Ms. Smriti Irani said the government is going to take various steps in order to put education system in place. Besides, the government is coming up with a new education policy next year, Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani said today. Her other initiatives include, a new teachers’ training programme and also provide them with digital solutions to give them proper training. Plans are there to set up placement cells in every university.
