Telangana Congress Government Unveils Visionary State Advisory Council for Education and Employment Revamp

The recently elected Congress government in Telangana is gearing up for a transformative step by planning the formation of a high-level State Advisory Council dedicated to elevating the standards of education and boosting youth employability in the state. This strategic move aligns with the government’s commitment to fostering a skilled and knowledgeable workforce, as reported by the Times of India.

Headed by Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy, the State Advisory Council draws inspiration from the 2004 National Advisory Council spearheaded by Sonia Gandhi. Comprising eminent personalities like Professor Haragopal, former IAS officer Aakunuri Murali, Professor K Nageshwar, and former IPS officer and BSP state president RS Praveen Kumar, the council is set to be a powerhouse of expertise in education and employment matters.

In a progressive move, the council is considering the inclusion of advisors from multinational companies (MNCs), bringing a holistic perspective to its initiatives. The operational base will be situated at the Phule Bhavan campus, overseeing activities across state universities and proposed skill development and development universities.

The advisory council has outlined key objectives that include providing insights to the government on curriculum enhancement, planning syllabi in alignment with market demands, and amplifying employment prospects for students. Additionally, the council will play a pivotal role in the selection of vice-chancellors, providing valuable consultation on such crucial matters.

A notable development is the expressed interest from corporate giants such as Mahindra & Mahindra, Tata, and Centurion University from Orissa, who are keen on establishing skill development universities in the state’s ten districts. Collaborating with the government, these institutes will contribute by offering land, designing curricula, managing admissions and examinations, and producing a workforce tailored to meet the demands of the job market.

The proposed three-year courses, available post-Intermediate, ITI, or polytechnic, will employ entrance tests for student admissions, with a specialized focus on industries like the automobile sector. This forward-thinking approach is poised to reshape the educational landscape in Telangana, emphasizing practical skills and industry relevance.
