Despite repeated attempts to offer proper training, evaluation, and related assistance, the actual figures for employable graduates each year are alarming. As a result, the gap between industry demands versus employable-skilled human capital continues to widen. The transformation shift from Education 4.0 to Education 5.0 is about co-creating the socio-digital ecosystem which could ease the dynamics of teaching-learning-skilling-employing youth (Gen-Z & Millennials).”
