Muscat: A number of scholarships from the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) will be announced at the Global Higher Education Exhibition (Ghedex) and Omanisation Career Fair (OCF).

Presentations on the internal and external scholarships for diploma and bachelor degrees will also be made.

The events kick-off on Tuesday at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre under the auspices of Dr. Said bin Hamad Al Rubai’ee, secretary general of the Education Council. More than 200 universities and colleges representing 20 countries, besides Oman are taking part in the exhibition and fair.

OCF will host about 50 leading public and private firms. The fair provides opportunities for meetings among recruitment experts, employers and jobseekers to review the available opportunities for graduates of higher education institutions.

It will also provide training opportunities in Omani colleges and training centres.

Seminars will be held on the sidelines of the two exhibitions to raise their value and give participants an overview about the important aspects of training and higher education. The exhibitions will also provide a platform for sharing knowledge and experience with visitors.

The last Ghedex had attracted more than 25,000 visitors and more than 200 top-notch universities and colleges from over 25 countries had participated.

with 170 educational bodies and institutions, accounting for international participation and 30 for local participation.

Omani and expatriate students seeking quality education and opportunities for involvement through internships and related career planning programmes will find Ghedex to be a lucrative opportunity to pursue their higher education goals.

In its 2015 budget, the government had allocated a significant budget for the education sector. According to the latest report, “Allocation of OMR3 billion for the education sector will be a shot in the arm for the education field. It will improve education in different ways, especially in terms of quality. With the funds allocated, focus should be more on improving the quality and bringing the education system at par with global standards.”

According to an Oxford Business Group (OBG) 2016 report, “Despite a drop in oil and gas revenues, the Sultanate maintained its commitment to education spending in its 2015 budget, with the sector retaining a major share of state expenditure.”

The fact that the government has maintained a high level of expenditure on education, despite the decline in oil prices, is a testament to how important it considers the sector to be to Oman’s future. This level of funding is likely to be sustained, even if the price of oil continues to drop, as there is a clear recognition in Muscat that education and training are fundamental to the success of the Sultanate’s wider economic, political and social aspirations.

The exhibitions will run until April 20. Timings are 9.30am to 1pm and 4.30pm to 9pm.

Why Teaching is the Most Important Profession for the Society?

Education and Healthcare are two areas closest to the heart of all Tripuraites. The beneficiaries of these industries are ready to walk that extra mile and are ever-willing to dole out extra sums to avail best of the services in these two industries. If that means moving out of the state, they do not even think twice, however, will the state progressing quite well in these areas over the last decade, many consider to stay back and experience the local offerings. On one hand it is indeed praiseworthy, but, owing to several bottle-necks at times it becomes imperative for the beneficiaries to get the same from other quarters. Healthcare can be a discussion some other day, over here, let’s dwell on what the need of the hour is for the Teaching Community of Tripura, so as to have a positive contribution overall for the state and the country.

  • Update and Upgrade– Modern day teaching is one of the most versatile profession. Reasons are manifold, on one hand being the major catalyst of change for the society and the nation, teachers are instrumental in sowing the seeds for a better tomorrow. The image of yesteryear, where teaching was just another job is a passe. Versatility in teaching effectively translates in frequent updation and upgradation, both in terms of certification as well as the approach. Furthermore, if you thought, its going to be a pssive profession, where, you can sit back and relax by giving some tasks to the pupils, well, you need to think again about the career option you are part of.
  • Teachers are no more knowledge dissemintaors– There has been a change of modern day’s teacher’s role. Earlier he used to be the knowledge disseminator, today that role has been taken over in a better and more efficient way by Google! What teacher’s can’t, Google Can, on the contrary, what Google can, teacher’s can’t! The moment a modern day teacher realizes it, he would get into the underlying change that has happened to his profession. This in turn would bring in the much required alteration in his behavior, attitude and approach towards the profession.
  • Target audience is smarter– Modern day students are much smarter than what it used to be a decade before. They are techno-savvy, polished, understands the nuances of networking and relationship building better, exposed to a large amount of information and are the major influencers in the decision making process, as part of their career. In such a situation, a teacher devoid of the versaility matching his pupil’s attributes would simply fade away, from the radar, in a short period of time. The concept of “respect” that always formed the cornerstone of this profession has undergone a facelift. Gone are the days when the pupil used to bow down to the “Mastermoshoi” just because he happened to be the teacher. These days the bowing down still remains as part of the Indian culture, but the eternal respect will dissipate if the teacher doesn’t meet up to the expectation of the modern generation of students.
  • Degrees are necessities, not luxuries anymore – Teaching is no more a left over profession, where, one can consider it as a stand-by option, only if other career opportunties does not work out. Teachers are professionals possessing professional degrees and certifications in teaching and learning and there is a need to keep oneself abreast with the latest, happening around him. Simply claiming to a be renowned teacher on the basis of experience and popularity amongst the teacher, would not suffice as regulations makes it imperative on the part of the teachers to acquire whatever is the order of the day. So, it is better to get started immediately, rather than wait and watch and then experience an unpleasant situation. The good old day teachers claimed to be the best not on the basis of degrees, which was there, but only those which was considered essential (i.e. the basic degree like graduation), but with competition increasing and need to have professionally trained teachers, it is absolutely pivotal to have other specialized degrees which makes the teacher understand the nuances of the profession from a contemporary standpoint.
  • Contribute towards building a learning culture- Teachers being the change agent for the society should consider contributing towards the creation of knowledge centered culture within the society. They are the best bet as they form the linkage between students and parents and they have the largest influence on both. Teachers therefore can very well consider themselves as role models in every sphere of life and make this a part of the learning culture the society needs so badly. Setting the right examples would enable the pupils to idolize the teaching community as a result of which good practices would get intertwined into the social fabric. Sermonizing would have little impact as the major difference between a teacher of yesterday and today lies in lesser sermonizing and more learning by doing approach, as the pupils of today want to experience it by doing, rather than passively listen to preachings and sermons.
  • Let money run after teacher and not the other way round- The noble profession of teaching has often been blamed to be a profession devoid of substantial monetary benefit, vis-à-vis other professions. The teachers who have made it big are generally the ones who have ventured out in areas not consider familiar to the masses. The situation prevailing is ripe for teachers to make that difference to the society in a positive way, which would compel each and every stakeholder, involved, directly and indirectly, with teaching to pour in resources to make this community help contribute towards their cause. An example could be research, where teachers contribute through their knowledge so as to bring in much needed change in the life of the common man. The other option could be metamorphosing the society as a knowledge based society, where, every indvidual takes decision on the basis of knowledge, culminating in the enhancement of the society, state and the country.

 

Teachers form the fulcrum for everything resonating from the society and therefore, it is absolutely vital for everybody to contribute positively towards these professionals, even if their respective wards are through with the formal educational years. This is a myth that needs to be broken as teaching never stops, even after one has graduated from a formal teaching-learning set-up. The impact of teaching is felt by one and all as every happening good or bad in the society is an outcome of teaching that happens, formally as well as informally. Although it is the opportune time for the teachers to soul search, the time is also apt for all of the other stakeholders to reorient their approaches towards this profession. As they say the mirror image of the society is reflected in teaching and vice-versa!

Career Counseling, A important Cog in the Career Wheel

Career counseling professional, career mentors and counselors play an important role for the career aspirants. The emergence of innumerable career options have led to career aspirants opting for their future career path, solely on the basis of hearsay or blindly imitate the bandwagon. This may not look dangerous initially, however, over a period of time one starts to realize the negative ramification. Adds, Suzane Cox, an established career mentor in Singapore, “Career counseling by experts acts as the ideal precursor for the right career choice”.

 

Who can do be a Career Mentor and a Counselor?

Can anyone be a career mentor or a career counselor? The answer is an emphatic No! Career mentoring or career counseling is more than selling a service to a prospect. It calls for a solid analysis that is done by the experts who are mainly into the teaching-learning domain, with the requisite expertise. Opines, Uma Bhattacharya, Secretary of Kingston Educational Group, Kolkata, “We always ensure the students are adequately mentored and counseled before opting for a career choice, as education is a way of life”. The importance of education is not limited by time frame nor it is shortlived and therefore, it is even more imperative for all concerned stakeholders, viz, students, parents, teachers, cousnelors, mentors to understand the importance of career counseling and career mentoring and opt for the right professional.

What happens in a career mentoring or career counseling session?

Career counseling and career mentoring session takes a career aspirant through a wide range of information and also allows the candidates to undergo a range of tests. These enables the aspirant to know about his or her personality and take the right decision pertaining to the career choices available. He or she should also look into the options and compare the services and value added attributes available, as career is not only joining an institution and pursuing an academic program anymore. It relates to the enhancement of the overall personality of the candidate, in order to make him the right citizen for the country and also a right employee for the right employer at the right time and the right place.

Is it worth paying money for  Career Counseling sessions?

Career related investments especially that would allow to gather information and realize one’s personality from a career perspective is indeed a long term investment. Not spending on these aspects related to career and rather wasting money on other non-important cost heads, looks like a silly proposition in the long run. The serious career aspirants always goes the extra mile to register and attend career counseling and mentoring programs, both virtually and in the real life.

What can Career Counseling do to a Career Aspirant?

Career counseling or Career mentoring can open a pandora’s box for a career aspirant. Quite often it is seen that career related dilemmas remains unsolved and one just tries to opt for a career option blindly, by following the career bandwagon. This can be reduced to a very large extent if career aspirants attend these programs. This will enable them to have a realsitic picture of themselves, vis-à-vis the range of options available for them.

Who should attend a career counseling session?

Career counseling sessions should necessarily be attended by the career aspirants, their parents, teachers and even career guides. The reason for this is to have an all rounded understanding of a career decision and it’s impact on each and every of the aforementioned stakeholders. The career aspirant whle taking a decision may not realize it would have a cascding impact on various other stakeholders, directly and indirectly related to him or her. Maitryee decided to opt for fashion designing as a career, and her father decided to sponsor her education through a bank loan. It was later realized that the institution did not have accreditation from the concerned bodies, as a result of which her degree was considered invalid when it came to knocking the doors of the prospective employers. Many of Maitryee’s juniors also joined the fray, as they considered her a role model and landed up in the same soup. The teachers felt bad as some of their brillant pupils took a wrong decision and they could not do much at the outset, as they lacked information and means to influence the decision of the students and their parents. It is here career counseling and mentoring play an important role for one and all, and therefore, it is important to cash upon such opportunities.

How should the Career Aspirant behave in a Career Counseling or Mentoring Session

A career enthusiast should be proactive and reactive while attending a career counseling session. Proactiveness would come only if substantial homework is done on the part of the career aspirants. The homework includes information search from various sources, pertaining to various career options, analysing ones interests and trying to relate those with various career options. More are the questions posed during a career counseling or mentoring session, maximum would be the dividends derived by the candidate. Listening to experts during career related lecture and workshops also enables in opening the mental set-up of the candidate. One such career based program is being held in the Agartala Press Club on the 27th of March 2017, which will bring together some national and international career mentors. Details can be sought by emailing kingedureg@gmail.com or calling at 8336911928.
