The winding up of National Internship Program by Federal Government is not a good decision unlike of those that were essential for better administration and management of Central Government. National Internship Program had some weak aspects, however, it was more beneficial and helpful for those who were just in the initial stages of their career soon after leaving their institution. It was not just a source of experience, training and a meager amount of earning but it provided confidence, guidance and practical learning that might not be achieved through centuries old text books and outdated education system.
Since the establishment National Internship Program it trained about 27000( in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa) new comers with at least 5000 every year in different fields with the full support of several private and public sector organization,
Internship is considered an essential assignment for Masters Students connected with technical and managerial fields. The internship report and certificate are considered a guarantee of experience, capability and eligibility for any career.
The irrational decision of Federal Government besides, un employing thousand of students currently working on various internship projects, would create a shortage of experienced professionals among the fresh candidates.
Now the Provincial Government should take meaningful steps to assume the responsibility by establishing an authentic institution that may streamline the experienced and skilled professionals in order to a way to developed Pakistan.
