Govt providing affordable education to KP students, says Bangash  

PESHAWAR  –   Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Minister for Higher Education Kamran Bangash on Thursday said that under the leadership of Chief Minister Mahmood Khan students are being provided the best affordable and free education.    

Presiding over a meeting of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Education Foundation, Bangash said that during last 20 years, 6500 scholarships were given to the students and now 5000 scholarships are being given in one year. “We are introducing short courses in emerging technologies for students, every year 20,000 students will learn world-class short courses on scholarships,” he added. 

The minister said that what PTI government has done in one year has not been done in last 20 years in education sector. The provincial government is doing its best to provide low cost and free education to the students.   

Kamran Bangash said that short courses would be started from March 2022. With the help of short courses in emerging technologies, unemployed youth could start their own business which would significantly reduce the unemployment rate.  Students will learn skills through short courses and will become a source of strength and economic stability for us, he maintained. 

The minister said that within 5 months, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Education Foundation would be fully paperless and digitalised. Digitising the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Education Foundation is an important step towards transparency of the provincial government, he concluded.
