Graduates or Post Graduates college studies will teach you the academic content that you are going to specialize in. If you are a chemical engineer or a philosophy major or a computer science major or if you do home sciences, any degree that you opt for will make you a master in that subject through your college education.
However, it is not the same when you come out to the real-world and start looking out for jobs and to gain experience.
The major issues with the traditional college learning according to several studies are:
Inability to find passion early on
Lack of holistic learning
Lack of Higher Order Thinking Skills
Lack of Reading, Writing, Speaking skills.
Let’s understand this from some facts:
- According to the ILO, 53% of Indian businesses were unable to hire candidates due to a lack of future skills.
- According to an ASSOCHAM report, only 20% of the five million fresh graduates every year get employed.
- According to the world development report, 50% of the jobs are going to be automated. The only jobs that are secured are those that demand Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS).
- Only 25% of students have a habit of reading. ‘Reading’ is now dying in India. Reading is the doorway to building cognition and language skills.
