Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia said on Thursday that a program will be designed through which ITI graduates and students can interact with students in schools and encourage them to pursue professional courses in these institutions.
Sisodia was interacting with an ITI student in Khichripur. During the event, he said that the Industrial Training Institute’s professional development courses help students build the conviction to achieve their career aspirations and give them clarity on future goals.
The state’s education minister said the Delhi government’s ITIs are playing a “vital role” in the mission to improve the education of India’s youth.
He further said that students emerging from training institutes like ITI will usher in a “new chapter” for the “development of India” with their capacity.
“We need to empower children to take up professional courses, and students in our ITIs need to inspire students in schools to take up this route for education,” Sisodia said.
“It is crucial to encourage students to take up vocational courses in a society where it is believed that if a student does not graduate, there is a huge gap in the child’s education,” he said.
