Vocational education is the need of the hour. It means training the youth for skilled jobs, so that they may become independent. Hundreds and thousands of young people are unemployed today. They need jobs to support themselves and their families. The university degree does not give a person the ability to earn his living it is therefore not surprising that out of millions who graduate every year, only a few of them find jobs. The rest of them run from pillar to post looking for some form of employment. Our universities, which still follow the British format of imparting education, produce educated youth fit for white-collar or clerical jobs. Unfortunately due to the rapidly changing job profiles, the number of white-collar jobs has reduced considerably. This has forced a large number of them to join the ranks of the unemployed. There is an urgent need to pay more attention to acquiring some sort of vocational qualification along with a university degree. The government on its part should open more and more vocational training institutes and universities. They are an essential requirement for the youth of today. Professional courses of low, intermediate, and specialized sectors will give the country the much-needed trained manpower. This in turn will give and create for millions of youth the needed employment.
