Education is at the heart of all of our ambitions as a nation. No other area of Government activity has greater capacity to change our country for the better. It is crucial to all of our ambitions to support a fairer society, and it is crucial to all of our ambitions to deliver a stronger economy.
Equally, in the area of skills, by implementing the right mix of policies, we can deliver dramatic changes in our ability as a country to attract more jobs, grow more businesses within the country, and ultimately support strong economic growth.
There is so much more we have to do. As an initiative, we at ESI have designed and structured ‘The Action Plan for Education’ which provides a roadmap to achieve our ambition and to transform people’s lives and to help everyone to achieve their potential in life.
An excellent and innovative education and training system is pivotal to personal fulfilment, the building of a fair society and a successful nation. It is central to sustaining economic success and in building strong communities. Our central vision is that, through adopting a “whole-of-system” approach, the Indian education and training system should lead in innovation and a broad range of endeavors and that we will harness education and training to break down barriers for groups at risk of exclusion and set the benchmark for social inclusion. Through this approach our ambition is that we will deliver to the highest international standards, and prepare learners to participate and succeed in a changing world.
The scope of educational planning has been broadened. In addition to the formal system of education, it is now applied to all other important educational efforts in non-formal settings. Attention to the growth and expansion of educational systems is being complemented and sometimes even replaced by a growing concern for the quality of the entire educational process and for the control of its results. Finally, planners and administrators have become more and more aware of the importance of implementation strategies and of the role of different regulatory mechanisms in this respect: the choice of financing methods, the examination and certification procedures or various other regulation and incentive structures.
Being a new initiative, a never before experience has an ambition to be the best at:
1.Delivering a learning experience to highest international standards
2.Harnessing education to break down barriers for groups at risk of exclusion and setting the benchmark for social inclusion
3.Equipping learners of all ages and capacities to participate and succeed in a changing world
4.Leading in innovation and a broad range of endeavours; scientific, cultural, enterprise and public service
5.Fostering strong relationships between enterprise and education and building strong bridges with the wider community.
