Expand learning opportunities for youths


Efforts to enhance the educational system are underway, aiming to provide ample learning opportunities for all school-age children. One key objective is to prevent students from prematurely dropping out before completing their primary and middle school education. The introduction of new educational plans seeks to ensure that students can pursue a diverse range of subjects, thereby increasing their chances of success.
Under the latest educational initiatives, all students who successfully complete middle school (Grade 8) will be offered the opportunity to delve into agriculture, livestock, and industrial subjects. In the 2023-24 academic year, 51 basic education high schools across 50 districts in various regions and states have been incorporated into this program. This development marks a significant step towards broadening educational horizons. Moreover, plans are already in motion to include an additional 34 schools across 34 districts in the 2024-25 academic year.
This innovative approach will allow students to acquire vocational skills in industrial, agricultural, and livestock techniques while continuing their high school education. Upon completion of this program, they will be well-prepared for a wide array of job opportunities, thereby significantly contributing to the overall improvement of living standards for both their families and themselves.
When students transition from basic education to middle school, they often find themselves at a crossroads in life, uncertain about their future paths. The government’s commitment to providing educational options enables them to seamlessly integrate academic and vocational subjects into their learning journey. At this juncture, students can make informed decisions about focusing on industrial techniques, agriculture, or livestock farming tasks, setting the stage for a brighter future.
Within the realm of industrial techniques, students can study areas such as construction, electrical work, and machinery production. Those who successfully pass examinations in these subjects will receive completion certificates, opening doors to job opportunities. For those who excel and demonstrate a strong aptitude, further educational avenues are available at institutes or colleges, and those with exceptional performance can even pursue degrees at relevant universities. This structured approach ensures that their educational paths align with their goals, leading to a promising future.
Currently, the government is actively working to create inclusive learning opportunities and environments that cater to students’ individual circumstances. These diverse pathways in vocational training will not only empower students to improve their own lives but also have a positive impact on their families and communities. It is imperative for students to seize these learning opportunities and shape the trajectory of their lives and their nation’s future.
