Dr Kusum Thantry D’Sa on “Formal degrees are things of past”

 

The fact that Formal Degrees are things of the past is nothing new. Yet, we continue the obsolete curriculum in our schools and institutions of higher education.

On one side, there is a discussion about education linking to jobs. On the other, formal education has no foundation to prepare the children to build future-ready careers.

As an educator and training students for employment in my career, I have always found the gap between the years spent in the classrooms and the corresponding industry requirements.

Thankfully, the current NEP addresses this, but we have a long way to go; overhauling a century-old system is not easy.

My talk will be exploring the above assumptions based on my own experience as an Educator, Placement Director, Trainer, and counsellor.
