This book, “Work Experience Education” has been written by me in order to meet this urgent need. I have carefully collected all relevant information from different sources and presented the same in a lucid, comprehensive and straight forward manner. Wherever necessary, a healthy criticism of the scheme and practices connected with this scheme of Work Experience has also been offered. An effort has been made to make the readers aware of the concept of ‘Work Experience’ and also the latest ideas, views and data relating to it. Work Experience has been given an important place in the school curriculum in India so that the gap between the students’ knowledge and practical activity may be bridged. This develops the capacity to understand one’s environment, ability to take part in the life activities, various values and smartness in children.
