The Haryana Minister for Public Works, Rao Narbir Singh, inaugurated two new vocational courses - Automobile and Beauty & Wellness - in Government Senior Secondary School, Kadipur, under the National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF). He also inaugurated a newly constructed block in the School premises besides the toilets constructed by Indian Oil Corporation (IOC). On the occasion Rao Narbir Singh said that the present State government is taking steps to provide quality education to students in government schools and is committed to providing ‘dual desks’ in all government schools by the end of 2016. No student would then have to sit on the ground for receiving his/her education. He said that it is the responsibility of teachers to impart good education to students and imbibe in them good moral values as well. He said that the State government has decided to extend innovative vocational education project to government aided and even private schools because this will enhance  the employability skills of the students. Under the scheme, private schools would be given grants of Rs 6,500 per child on the completion of successful training. The Minister said that 25 percent seats in vocational courses would be reserved for students belonging to socio-economically weaker sections and to children with special needs. In the reserved seats, 50 percent quota will be for girl students. Presently 240 government schools have been covered under the scheme, which is being implemented in collaboration with the Ministry of Human Resource Development. In all there are seven Applied Skills programs on offer under NSQF – Retail, Automobile, Security, IT/ITes, Beauty & Wellness, Patient Care Assistant, Physical Education and Sports. The Block Education Officer of Gurgaon, Capt. Indu Boken, apprised everyone on how training would be imparted to students in these courses. The Principal of the Kadipur school, Mani Ram, requested for some financial assistance, and the Minister confirmed that Rs 5 lakhs would be given to the school. Principals from various schools participated in the programme.
