Skills Versus Degree: What Would You Prefer In India?

Skills Versus Degree What Would You Prefer In IndiaThe dichotomy between skills and degree has always haunted India. Nevertheless India preferred the academic structure over skills oriented courses and trainings. As a result we have mass educated unemployed youth that has become a mammoth problem for our successive governments to manage. India was smart enough to realise that skills development is the need of the hour. The Congress government laid down the foundation for a robust skills development infrastructure in India and the BJP government is carrying forward the same to its logical end.

In the past the Indian government took some very significant steps in the direction of making skills development an essential part of the educational and training initiatives. The government had not only allowed private training and educational institutions to operate with full autonomy and liberty but it had also ensured that they provide qualitative and productive training and education.

Perry4Law Organisation and Perry4Law’s Techno Legal Base (PTLB) welcome these efforts of successive Indian governments from time to time. At the same time we would like to emphasise that online skills development in India would play a crucial role in making Indian masses skilled and employed in the long run.

The present challenge before Indian government is to ensure and promote skills development and entrepreneurship activities in India. We also firmly believe that the potential candidates targeted for skills development in India must concentrate more upon skills than degrees and diplomas that are merely academic in nature and devoid of any skills oriented trainings and courses.

After all if a person does not possess any degree or diploma but she is well skilled she may still be able to manage her own business or self employment venture. But in the absence of such crucial skills even the degree or diploma would fail to provide any employment cushion to her.

But here lies the real problem and challenge for India. We have very few skills development institutions in the real sense. Further, we have hardly few techno legal skills development and training institutions that are imparting trainings and skills developments in the fields like cyber law, cyber security, cyber forensics, e-discovery, e-courts, online dispute resolution (ODR), cyber crimes investigation, civil liberties protection in cyberspace, etc.

The e-learning platform of PTLB provides many unique and qualitative techno legal courses in the fields of cyber law, cyber security, cyber forensics, e-discovery, digital evidencing, civil liberties protection in cyberspace, e-commerce, e-governance, etc. Similarly, the blog on virtual legal education campus of PTLB is the exclusive techno legal initiative of its type in India. This is a platform that is catering to the needs of contemporary legal fields like cyber law and cyber forensics.
