Acquire Skills not just Degrees: MANUU VC

Hyderabad: “Earning a degree is important but skill development is equally important. Display your talent, your calibre and art, don’t be just someone in a crowd. We are implementing New Education Policy (NEP) precisely for this. To raise the standards of talent in the country,” said Prof. Syed Ainul Hasan, Vice Chancellor, Maulana Azad National Urdu University (MANUU) today in the inaugural session of the Second Faculty Induction Program (FIP) organized by UGC-Human Resource Development Centre (UGC-HRDC) at MANUU.

Earlier, the guest speaker Ashok Sajjanhar, a career diplomat who has worked in the Indian Foreign Services (IFS) and has been India’s ambassador to Kazakhstan, Sweden and Latvia, spoke about the drastically changing world and the need to modernize and meet the challenges through education. The last education policy came out in 1986 and now we had a new education policy in 2020. India is the ‘start-up’ capital of the world now. We must focus on our own languages. We also need to engage more confidently with the outside world and NEP envisages joint collaborations with foreign universities. It also offers much greater flexibility with its concept of academic banks, and multiple entries and exit points, Sajjanhar said while adding that the training of teachers would be the anchor for the success of the NEP.

Prof. Tahseen Bilgrami, Director, UGC-HRDC said the program has been designed with the New Education Policy in mind. (INN)
