The continuously transforming Indian economy is in need to have the eagle eye to SPOT, HONE and DEPLOY talent. Talent, that’s Spotted and nurtured in SCHOOL, Honed at the UNIVERSITY and Deployed by the INDUSTRY.
School University Industry Teaming
Academia has the obligation to produce leaders to meet the enormous challenges of today’s fast moving business world. A linkage needs to be established to minimize the gap between the School and the University standards to prepare the preeminent skilled hands for the industry, which in turn gets equipped to position the human resource in the best suitable turf of their interest. Industry need not spend time and money in whetting skills as per their requirement. The highest responsibility in the scenario lies with the Schools, which prepare the base for the nurturing of the future leaders, and begin the fundamental guidance of our human resource to enter the University for their formal, skill based training. The major aim of the University has been to provide academics with professional development in teaching skills, and to deliver courses to students to give them an idea of the potential requirement and the difficulties foreseen in the Industry. Industry, that needs to stand up to the standards of the Global Business World.
SUIT is an initiative to bring the three most important key players, otherwise standing as powerful individual entities representing the nation’s global strength, to one platform. The annual teaming of SCHOOL-UNIVERSITY-INDUSTRY will function as synapses to facilitate a smooth transition of skills from school to university to industry and will pave way to a stronger and more powerful global presence of our nation.
Bihar, being at the threshold of an educational revolution, has taken a huge leap towards quality education with many national and international Institutions coming to the state and setting high standards for the academic world. However, innovations are yet to take the lead when it comes to education. When the world is getting closer through globalization, we are still struggling to get our basics right. Certainly this cannot be an excuse to not let the cream get its share of entering the elite class. It’s time for the schools to make available streams that would prepare the students for a global growth and for the university to offer courses, which complement and support the widening of horizons for the students of Bihar. Not many educational Institutions are excelling in ‘Add on Courses’, neither are many Higher Secondary Schools working towards skill based education. One such skill is the knowledge of Modern Foreign Languages [MFL]. Language is the core of education; the medium to communicate and impart knowledge. Conversely, the field of foreign languages is yet to be explored in the state. The emergence of ‘Modern Foreign Languages Education’ as an independent scientificpedagogical system has afforded it the opportunity of presenting itself as a dynamically-developing teaching field and places a whole range of interconnected issues on the agenda of the day. The circumstances of an open and interconnected world, the widening range of international cooperation, the growing social and educational importance of MFL knowledge as an instrument of international cooperation has made languages an educational priority and assigned them the status of being an obligatory professional competency qualification for any modern specialist and prepares them for working life in the new conditions of international cooperation. The time is right to form synapses between the part of academia, which has excelled and brought on an evolutional leap as regards the level and quality of MFL knowledge that is now demanded, and the part which is putting in effort to meet the ends to bring about a considerable change. It’s time to kick off a debate on the importance of learning Foreign Languages.
The conference is an effort to bring representatives from Schools, Universities & Industry together to discuss the importance of Modern Foreign Languages. It is a talk to instigate and initiate a step towards recognizing Modern Foreign Languages as an integral part of learning. The heightened social importance of MFL and the increasing levels of migration have stimulated the teaching of MFL. The debates, discussions and exchange of ideas and expressions will aim to provide the participants:
1st. An insight into the importance of MFL teaching.
2nd. A network of innovative institutions specializing in teaching of foreign languages and institutions willing to follow suit.
3rd. Collaboration between Secondary, Higher Secondary and Higher Education to prepare resources for the industry to stand upright in the global market.
4th. Vital information regarding Higher Education abroad.
5th. A peep into the window showcasing the demand of foreign language experts in the industry and opportunity for foreign language students.
One hundred selected school promoters and school leaders who are invested in the provision, management and leadership of these organizations. These organizations are spread across Bihar and Jharkhand and are making or attempting to make a positive impact in education. They are open to collaborating with like-minded professionals and looking to learn from success stories from the sector. Their current designations in their organizations could be Chairperson, Trustee, Manager, Director, Principal or Senior Leader
