Gurgaon: Favouring a change in the education structure, HRD Minister Kapil Sibal on Monday asked parents to change their mindset and focus on vocational education for their children.

Launching a pilot project on 'National Vocational Education Qualifications Framework' here, Sibal said, India is a country of youth. There is need to give them such education, which may get them good employment in future.

He said, parents will have to change their mindset in this regard and instead of normal education, they should see that their children get vocational education.

If someone has to work in automobiles, where is the need to teach him history? Those who want to pursue studies after schooling can do so, but those wanting to work should be professionally prepared to get work, Sibal said.

Emphasising on the need to change the structure of education in the country, he said that 100 community colleges will be launched soon.

Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda said that Haryana is developing into an education hub of international level.
