Vocational education forms the backbone of any country as it provides skilled human capital that can help the economy expand. In India, however, vocational education hasn’t been able to pick up pace and support economic growth.
Keeping this in mind, the 6th edition of the VCCircle Education Investment Summit will try to identify the hurdles holding vocational education back. The event, to be held on November 26 at The Westin, Gurgaon, will also delve into the changes required to ensure vocational education and skill development help accelerate India’s economic growth.
With the government focusing on skill development with renewed vigour, the role of the private sector becomes crucial. The event will discuss how the corporate sector can channelize the resources and policy in the right direction. It will deliberate also on how companies can build a profitable and scalable business with a focus on making an impact.
Besides, participants will discuss the notion of vocational training yielding less from the pupil’s perspective due to the lack of professional opportunities and certification issues as well as what needs to be done to overcome this challenge.
Many other important issues and trends governing education in India will be discussed at the summit. The event will be attended by sector experts, professionals working on a social agenda for education, entrepreneurs looking to disrupt delivery of education through technology, marquee investors as well as industry consultants and advisors.
Main topics to be discussed:
- Picking the nerve of elementary education in India: Have we done enough?
- K-12 education in India: Taking quality education beyond Tier-I schools and cities.
- Vocational education: Skilling India’s human capital.
- Ed-Tech: If you fund it, will it scale?
- Ed-Tech: Transforming the way India learns.
