The board is taking measures to enable students to deal with the upcoming competition and to improve the country’s future.
In an endeavour to encourage students to take vocational subjects, he further added, “The new policy has recommended that vocational subjects need to be a part of the five subjects, it would be a good move.”
Furthermore, he also suggested schools to give important training to teachers so that they can become highly motivated communicators, mentors, and learn to implement creative thinking and emotional balance.
Most of the students neglect vocational subjects due to various factors such as lack of employability, poor value and absence of stability in the market. So, there is a dire need to take proper measures to improve the linkage and bonding among infrastructure, teachers, parents and students.
