According to industry executives, the new National Education Policy, approved by the Union Cabinet will promote skill-based learning, create a solid digital infrastructure to massify education, improve accountability and employability.
Neeti Sharma, senior vice-president at TeamLease Services, said the new policy is a positive move towards augmenting learning in India. It will improve overall accountability in the ecosystem. One of the key aspects that the policy has addressed is the implementation of the choice-based credit system — a multi-disciplinary approach that will provide flexibility to students to choose between programmes of choice. Degree-linked apprenticeship is another area that required attention to make our learning ecosystem more holistic.
All of this put together will help us scale learning, improve accessibility and enhance employability, she said.
