The minister said that in order to increase employability among students, the government has been mulling to introduce Telangana Academy of Skills and Knowledge (TASK). Rao said that students will be given entrepreneurship skills by networking with start-up companies and also be provided employment skills.
KTR added that students should not just be given classroom lectures; they should also be provided communication skills. “While there has been law for compulsory apprenticeship for students, not many colleges are following the norm. We are contemplating to bring apprenticeship or practical school law,” Rao said. He informed that Industrial Training Institutes would be strengthened.
Rao said that teachers also need orientation with the industry experts as technology changes from time to time. Industry experts who participated suggested that education should be more practical and research oriented.
