Shafqat Mehmood steps down as PTI central Punjab president

ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Education, Professional Training and National Heritage Shafqat Mahmood said that the government was devising a strategy to create jobs for PhD degree-holders in the country.
Shafqat Mahmood was speaking at the first international seminar on the Higher Education University Rankings organised by the Times Higher Education and the University of Lahore.
Mahmood lamented over the fact that PhDs in the country were unemployed. He assured the government was evolving policies to give jobs to them. “We should focus on promoting research culture in our universities as there is a need to bring about reforms in curriculum,” the minister said.
Earlier in Sep, the education minister had announced that all educational institutes including seminaries will follow the same ‘national’ curriculum, which will meet the international standard.
Shafqat Mahmood had said that his ministry is preparing the ‘national’ syllabus after taking all the curriculums around the world into its consideration. Therefore, “those who think the curriculum of O/A levels is the standard, should know that our prepared curriculum will be a top-level one.”
