On Wednesday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi stated the new National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 is carried out keeping in mind the necessity of contemporary and developed India. He also added that the policy emphasises the integrated development of children, knowledge, skills, culture and the promotion of Indian values.
“The Central government has executed the new National Education Policy keeping in mind the basic requirements of modern and new India perspective,” PM Modi said in a video note, during the time of addressing an event for newly-appointed teachers in the Madhya Pradesh state.
On the other hand, PM Modi further disclosed that more than 22,400 youths have been recruited for the position of teacher. He boosted the young blood with congratulatory messages to those who have received appointment letters for taking part in such noble work as teaching. The PM also highlighted the main role of teachers in the productive implementation of NEP 2020.
Citing the aspiring skill development programme, he added the government has put particular emphasis on skill development to encourage employment and self-employment. PM Modi further emphasised that under the Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana (PMKVY) many youths can easily get skill-oriented training programmes from skill development centres which have already been opened across the nation.
The Prime Minister informed that, under this year's financial budget, there will be over 30 Skill India International Centers opened across the country. In this centre, youths will be trained under the guidance of a skilled environment with new-age technology. This drive will have a massive positive impact on facilitating training to small artisans through the PM Vishwakarma Yojana scheme and also getting the chance to connect with the MSME world. He also appealed to the newly-designated teachers to always try and make a place in their hearts for their students.
