Minister Bats For Degree Or Diploma Courses In Skill Development

Mr Singh also said the country needed to move from the primary sector to the tertiary sector.

 

NEW DELHI: There should be degree or diploma courses in skill development as mere certification would not work, said Union Power Minister R.K. Singh here on Monday. Addressing a conference of state Skill Development Ministers, he said the country needed to move from the primary sector to the tertiary sector as “we are lagging the developed countries”.

Speaking on the occasion, Minister of Skill Development Mahendra Nath Pandey said skill development was the prime focus of the government and Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced a sub-committee to give impetus to the sector.

Those providing skill training should get “Kaushalacharya Samman” on the Teachers Day next year, he said and added, skill development must be planned in a way that people turned into job-givers, and not job-seeker.
