Limited autonomy for KP colleges on cards
Peshawar: The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government has decided to award limited autonomy to public sector colleges in
the province to improve their performance.
The initiative to declare public sector colleges as semi-autonomous bodies is
part of New Academic Model (NAM), being formulated by the higher education
department of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. "The government has planned to declare public
sector colleges as semi-autonomous so that their administrations can play a
major role in academic and administrative decisions," officials said.
They added that under the planned NAM, more administrative powers and
academic autonomy would be delegated to the administrations of colleges.
"The NAM has already been implemented in developed countries," officials at
higher education department said.
Presently state-run colleges are administratively and academically controlled
by the provincial government and public sector universities respectively.
"The universities and provincial government are autonomous in their decisions
regarding state-run colleges. They often take conflicting decisions and create
problems for the administrations of colleges," officials said.
The public sector universities have the power to design courses and conduct
examinations of the affiliated colleges. So far, universities have shown little
interest in courses development of colleges. "The courses of colleges have not
been changed during the last 30 years," they said, adding the changes were aimed
at bringing the education system at par with that of developed countries.
"The public sector colleges will get autonomy in designing courses in the
coming few months," said Prof Mohammad Tariq, Director Project Management Unit
He said that higher education department was also preparing a plan to enable
colleges to conduct their examinations.
After devolution of powers to college administrations, a unit of colleges on
district level would be formed for taking uniform decisions regarding
administrative and academic changes in the educational institutions, he
Another department, named as Higher Education Council, would be established
at provincial level to give final approval to the changes in courses suggested
by the unit of colleges, he said.
Currently, public sector colleges are run under District Management Model, a
decades-old system having many flaws causing wastage of time even to solve a
"Getting approval for anything in the existing system is a lengthy and
complicated process. A file is first sent from a college to directorate of
higher education and then to secretariat for official work. It takes months to
get the file signed," officials said.
They said that owing to the lengthy and complicated process the post of a
teacher, transferred to another college, remained vacant for months and precious
time of students was wasted.
"The transfers and leaves of teachers and other financial issues will be
decided by the college administration with little involvement of directorate and
secretariat of higher education, if NAM is introduced. It will help save the
precious time of teachers and students," they said. Dawn
