Steps that can end Pakistan’s dilemma of Inefficent labour force 

Pakistan lacks in creating a productive engagement environment between its education and industries which results in lack of efficiency in the labour force in almost every major sector. With proper review and analysis of the current public education model, things can change quickly. Moreover, the way our industries are showing lack of interest in shaping our  labour force and its skill set,  we might not be able to meet our future skillset demands. Several more things can be pointed out but to be more productive we should focus on changing things. This can be done with new steps that our federal and every provincial government should take to make our labour force more efficient. It will boost our economic progress and make our educational institutions more industry focused and result oriented.

Governments should take steps which ensure

  • Mandating internships as part of our degree and diploma programs
  • Allocation of financial resources towards career and placement centres of our educational institutions
  • Subsidizing educational costs in the areas where Pakistan lack human capital through industry funding
  • Promoting our industries to work with educational institutions in curriculum development to increase efficiency of labour force
  •  tax credits to organizations which hire interns from small towns and underdeveloped areas
  • development of industry funded learning tools for public institutions
  • Development of funding mediums for tech entrepreneurs
  • Promotion of polytechnic programs that are more practical and hands on
  • Creation of fully industry funded engineering schools
  • Creation of industry backed education loan programs that cover full cost of education

With these steps, we will not only improve our labour force but also give more access to quality education and promissble future for the next generation and industries will benifit from it too
