Pakistan witnesses increase in enrollment at technical schools

In Pakistan, 3.6 thousand technical and vocational institutes were functional at national level in 2015. According to APP 19.4 thousand teachers were engaged with these institutes.

The fiscal year 2015 registered a 3.7% increase in enrollment at technical schools. According to Pakistan Economic Survey, it is estimated that the enrollment will increase by 2.6% in 2016.

An increase in enrollment also identifies the need to develop more training centers, as many young people still fail to access the centers and tools for technical education. The trends in enrollments also highlight the increased entrepreneurial capacity of the society. While all this maybe good news, the rising population and the unskilled labour force signals the need for a strategic action to develop human resource in Pakistan.

Amongst the actions taken by the government the Vision 2030 is perhaps of most value .The Planning commission of Pakistan has emphasized the need for increased expenditure on technical education and re-introduction of technical education in the last 2 years of secondary school.

To reach the goals set to achieve Vision 2030 the commission has proposed an increased enrollment in vocational education by 50 % and enhance the quality of education in general.To create and sustain an enabling environment Pakistan ought to explore deeply the possibilities of exporting skilled manpower.
