According to the National Education Policy 2020, learners should receive pre-vocational exposure during their school and higher education. Every child is expected to learn at least one vocation and be exposed to several more, according to the NEP 2020. The policy emphasizes integration and mainstreaming of vocational education with general education, with ‘no hard separation’ between the vocational and academic streams. This will be supplemented by experiential vocational learning, helping students acquire various skills to meet industry needs and improve education quality.
Following the guidelines outlined in NEP 2020, Bharti Foundation initiated the Student Internship Program 2022-23 in its partner government schools in Jodhpur, Jaipur, and Pali Districts of Rajasthan. A total of 22 schools participated, and 82 students took part in a 5-day internship program at the Life Insurance Corporation of India, Rajasthan Marudhara Gramin Bank, Indian Postal Department, and Bank of Baroda.
