Amidst the COVID-19 updates, the New Education Policy has become a hot topic for the people in India. The policy which is a source of much debate is accepted by many of the HR scholars.
The NEP has gained attention among the HR professionals as it focuses on talent and aptitude. The policy is said to have good impacts in the employable talent pool of the future.
Most of the leaders are of the opinion that it will enhance the skills in all the students just like the vocational training. Adil Malia, HR specialist said that the policy is a move in the right direction and is shifting focus from a rigid to a more flexible and structured learning environment.
With the introduction of NEP, the future workforce will be blessed with more holistic talent who have interests and skills acquired in multiple fields. This can sort out the current issue of having linear qualified candidates who are not adaptable to extra works within an organisation.
The blended policy will eliminate the mismatch of skills. The policy is also expected to make students develop their own ideas instead of byhearting the theories.
But the policy to attain its goal, there should be efficient and qualified faculties as well. Training young people in their vernacular languages can also make the policy more effective.
Many leaders opined that their concern lies in the sustainability of the policy and building of support systems to make it happen. The present digital divide in the country need to be solved or the policy is in total vain.
Establishment of the National Educational Technology Forum is a welcome move, but how much of our schools and colleges are equipped to make the e-learning possible with existing infrastructure is a matter of concern.
The NEP which has both the pros and cons will make an evident change in future if it is properly implemented.
