We often come across advertisements in which qualification, expected from the candidates are given in terms of essential and desirable. Why is it that these qualifications which are expected from a person in for a job?
People go in for education not only for the sake of getting job but also for enriching themselves. Educating oneself in any field primarily involves development of certain skills. i.e. if you choose commerce you develop skill for Accounts.
In the Jobs also, when the qualifications are advertised, they are specified so that the person can use those skills which one has acquired over a period of time. The skills learned and the work to be done are interrelated. For ex- a person who has gone through the medical training becomes a medical practitioner. This learning can take place both formally or informally. If you go in for vocational course like “Poultry Farming” from National Open School, you can start your own Poultry Farm and gain development. Similarly learning can take place in a non-formal setting also. If your father runs a farm and does farming and you help him then you come to know about the technicalities of farming without taking a formal course in it.
In this setting also education did take place . but you can further enrich yourself with latest formally technologies by going in for further courses. So we can see clearly that education and work are related.
