Students confused about student unions | PU MBBS students

Students confused as govt fails to restore student unions
Lahore, Jan 31: Students of private universities and educational institutions are confused about the activation of student unions and their due role, as the government, despite its claims of restoring student unions, has failed to announce a code of conduct for these unions.

Students from Beaconhouse National University (BNU), Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS), Lahore School of Economics (LSE), University College Lahore (UCL), and various other private institutions claim to have played a significant role in showing public support for a democratic government and an independent judiciary.

SAC members: Sundus Hurain, an active member of the Student Action Committee (SAC), said the ban imposed on student bodies in educational institutions by former president General (r) Ziaul Haq was completely unjust, and was an infringement on the rights of youth, who could become leaders of the country in the future.

She said the students were still waiting for practical implementation of the government's announcements. Haleema Mansoor, another leading member of the SAC, said the committee was a consortium of students from 21 private and public sector institutions. She said student unions played a major role in nurturing future leadership. Duties of students in student unions include organising extra-curricular activities, she said. South Asia Partnership Executive Director Muhammad Tahseen said he, along with other civil society organisations, urged the government to develop a code of conduct for the restoration of student unions.

"I think the current government has decided to delay all the positive changes that they promised to bring about before coming into power. They do not realise that they would be considered worse than past dictators if they continue this policy. The historians would remember them as those who led the country to crisis despite having a golden opportunity to correct things," he stated. The government was supposed to take the code of conduct to parliament to seek its approval, and it was then supposed to implement it, but nothing had been done so far, he said.

Punjab public schools to offer vocational training
Lahore: The Punjab government has decided to introduce vocational training courses in selected schools of the province in a bid to train schoolchildren in employable skills.

The plan envisages imparting vocational training to students of Class 6 and above by providing them with hands-on experience in electronics, woodwork and plumbing etc. In institutions for girls, courses in stitching and dress designing would be offered.

At present, technical education and vocational training courses are being offered only at institutions running under the administrative control of the Technical Education & Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA) and the Punjab Vocational Training Council (PVTC).

Senior officials of the Punjab Schools Education Department said that representatives of the department and the TEVTA were meeting to discuss the launch of vocational training in public sector schools.

They said in the first phase, the programme would be launched in 100 schools in each district of the province and this programme would be extended with the passage of time.

They said the TEVTA had agreed in principle that it would train schoolteachers.

They said the initiative was being taken on special directions of Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif.

They said funding issues were being discussed these days and according to estimates, Rs 100,000 would be allocated for each school to ensure availability of necessary equipment needed to launch the programme.

A senior official of the department requesting anonymity said the basic idea behind the initiative was to impart vocational training to students in addition to general education so that in case if a student fails to continue general education, he/she might be able to have employable skills needed for technical jobs.

Schools Education Department Secretary Nadeem Ashraf said efforts would be made to introduce vocational training courses in maximum schools from new academic session starting from March 2009.

He said special classes of vocational training would be organised in schools and students of Class 6 and above would be offered these courses. He said the department had set a target to introduce vocational courses in 3,500 schools across the province by 2010 academic session.
