Published by : Industrial Automation
In India, reboot education is expected to be the greatest opportunity in the current market scenario of lockdown owing to the outburst of COVID-19 deadly virus. In the current outbreak, education, healthcare, and IT companies are doing great in terms of demand and sales. The downfall of many sectors such as aerospace, automotive, electronics, and energy is adopting a lay-off strategy to maintain their balance in the global market. This is expected to be an opportunity for the employees to expand their skill-set or reboot their skills level to make their come-back more efficiently and effectively. This expected to bring reformation of education in India to move in the direction of reboot skill India.
The Role of Reboot Skills in Education
The post-pandemic COVID-hit Indian education sector is completely ill-prepared for anything which involves ‘self-study’. Indian universities and schools are primarily providing online classes without realizing that these kinds of learning are entirely dependent on self-discipline on the part of the student. These institutional platforms are committed to focusing on the part of the students to provide effective study materials, which demands is simply unrealistic. It is foreseen that the current structure of formal courses across various streams of Indian instruction is primarily not amenable to provide on online platforms. Such streams include arts, science, technology, engineering & mathematics as well as a class for the lower and higher secondary schools. The focus is far too much on controlling the teacher and the lesson; and, too little on urging the student to learn anything or develop any tangible or useful skill. No wonder e-learning in the Indian is not working.
In contrast, the demand for e-learning across the education and IT sectors is widely influenced to create more demand in terms to generate revenue for companies like BYJU’s, Udemy, and Unacademy. Further, it also still manages to focus on acquiring learning which has no visible connection with that normal life.
How Reboot Skill assist in IT sector
The Indian IT companies are promisingly providing early relieving and retirement as well as lay-off to maintain the stability of the company to continue its operation in the coming days. This expected to create continuous gardening the need for the fresher-versus-experienced ratio. In the coming days, it is expected that the public and private companies are more inclined towards the hiring of experienced candidature compared to fresher hiring.
Considering the current scenario, the many leading IT companies are stated that the issue of lockdown is the opportunity for the candidate in the future through advancement in their skills and upgrade in thinking. The IT companies are investing in the re-skilling of their employees by providing campus learning (onsite, online, on-the-job, and on-campus) to enhance their levels of learning effectiveness.
In the current, the employees at all industrial verticals are responsible for their skill-sets, relevance, and professional attitude. The companies are restricting evaluation and appraisal metrics specific towards the skill and contribution rather than tenure and longevity. This move is expected to reduce the attraction from the cost arbitrage model and leverages skills; it is time-effective, process-efficient, and can easily be dismantled, without much agony to team members.
