Late (Dr.) Rajendra Kumar Joshi hailed from Rajasthan. Even though he shifted his base - first for studies and later to contribute to the field of science – to Switzerland, his heart remained attached to this country. Inspired to make the country strong and competitive in terms of skilled labour and quality work, Dr. R. K. Joshi along with Ms. Ursula Joshi worked hard to drive many sectors like education, manufacturing and FMCG among many others. A special project nurtured under him is RUJ Skill School. He envisioned to ensure that children who are needy and from underprivileged background can still have a decent and respectable future. The school drop outs who cannot continue the education should have a respectable future armed with means of living a decent life. This would be only possible if they are trained to earn a living using a trade that interests them. At RUJ Skill School, we give the knowledge practice and exposure of various trades to these children who are school drop out (because of any reason like economic, family or other pressures). The children are trained and educated about specific trade that interests them. This not only helps as a steppingstone for their future but also guides them by giving a wholistic approach to the work they would like to take up once they pass out of the course. Dr. Joshi firmly believed that our nation’s demographic dividend and its rising population of working age people are a boon. The youth is talented and eager to make progress in life. In fact, the growth prospects of the Indian economy depend to a large extent on how the country tackles issues of intellectual capital and skill development today I, under his guidance and leadership was able to give shape to his vision. We have set up a one of its kind skill school at Neota. We not only provide the trade education to the children but also give them knowledge of the basic subjects that will help them shape their personality and demeanour. Our courses are aligned with NSQF and hence cover all the framework as designed by NSDC. We train the children for the basic levels of this framework. Also, in the last semester they are exposed to on the job training and hence in tune with the actual on the workplace expectations and requirements. It’s been a heady journey of transformation. We started RUJ Skill School in Neota in Jul 2019 and I can safely vouch for the fact that our youngsters are naturally talented with immense potential. With access to practical training that is paired with sparing doses of theory, Indian youth of today can innovate far beyond conventional expectations, enabling the nation to rise. All they need is a conducive ecosystem and the combined support of training providers, companies and policy makers.
Principal’s Message As a principal of the school, I feel honoured and privileged to be part of an institution where everyone is a learner and every day is an opportunity to learn and discover. “The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you.” —B.B.
