What is the Dynamics of Education to Employment ? And what are the Opportunities & Challenges?
The dynamics of education to employment is envisaged like a highway where there are 3 drivers. They are young people, educators and employers.
The research needed is to evaluate the differences in opinion among these three stack holders.
McKinsey report reveal the Gap between education and employment is the most important aspect in the education to employment journey.
Educational standards can be distinguished from occupational standards as they follow a Pedagogical logic of knowledge and skills, not the systematic description of occupational function sans associated competences.
I can appreciate the need for education to lead to jobs. I'm sure this side of the argument has been put by employer groups to the government agencies which administer school curriculums all over the world. But I'm wondering how many consider the ramifications if this policy were 100% successful.
It would mean that all education would be geared to provided industry with people ready to fit into the status quo of work as it is. It might also educate people in various sciences so that they could further the expand into those areas the big employers feel they need for the future.
But would it enhance that sort of creativity that takes us 'out of the square?' Where would the work of our creative geniuses come into play?
Would we even have them?
What would probably happen is mass standardization of subjects taught, and the result would be mass standardization of the ideas and thoughts created. The advancement of Civilization itself might well stagnate.
Many of our greatest inventions came from people who were not 'specialists' in the area in which their really significant breakthroughs were made. The Wrigt Brothers were bicycle mechanics. Alexander Graham Bell was an ears-nose-and throat specialist, yet he invented the telephone. We need diversity of education, not assembly-line education. And that is what we could end up having, if we put too much emphasis on gearing education to jobs.
Good Thought..We need diversity of education, not assembly line education..
