Deputy chief Minister and Education Minister Manish Sisodia said on Tuesday that the Delhi government is working towards evolving an education system in which a student may take a break to earn his or her livelihood and come back to their education when possible.

Government sources said that such a system will be very beneficial for students who may not be able to continue their education owing to financial compulsions but may want to come back later and continue from where they left.

“In the years to come, we want to bring in an education scheme under which a child getting out of school in Class XII should have two certificates, one for education and one for skills. The student can then decide whether to pursue further education or use the skill training given in Class IX, X, XI and XII and proceed to earn his or her livelihood,” Sisodia told the audience gathered at FICCI for a meeting on the theme of ‘Delhi 2020 — A Smart Place to Live, Work and do Business’.

Sisodia said that the sectors of education and health require a lot of attention and the government was committed to making significant improvement in them.

Explaining how the education system under the government’s consideration will work, Sisodia said, “If, after a year, students want to get back to their education, then they can come back to me and say that they want to pursue their education. Then they may want to take a break again after two years, they can come back even ten years later. We will bring in this system of further education.”
