CBSE Inks 15 MoUs for Teachers’ Training and Skill Development

  • This agreement has been signed in accordance with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has entered into 15 Memorandum of Understandings (MoUs) to promote Skill Education, Assessment and Capacity building of teachers.

This agreement has been signed in accordance with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. NEP highlights the need for stronger collaboration between academia and industry. The curriculum must align with industry requirements and provide opportunities for internships and apprenticeships to expose students to the industry. Equally important is enhancing teachers’ skills to achieve desired outcomes, as stated in the CBSE notification.

For this purpose, CBSE has collaborated with various entities for skill development, education and training. The 12 MoUs are signed with sector skill providers such as Atal Innovation Mission, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Apparel Made-ups and Home Furnishing Sector Skill Council, Automotive Sector Skill Council, Sports, Physical Education, Fitness, and Leisure Skills Council, Logistics Sector Skill Council, Furniture and Fittings Sector Skill Council, Life Sciences Sector Skill Council, Textiles Sector Skill Council, and Healthcare Sector Skill Council.

“Training Manuals will be developed by Educational Initiatives Pvt. Ltd and Oxford University Press India for the Competency Based Capacity Building Programme (CBP) for teachers in English, Maths, Science, and Social Science. The existing CBP will be updated to strengthen Assessment and Evaluation, and training materials will be developed for the Capacity Building Programme (CBP) on National Curriculum Framework Foundational Stage (NCF-FS),” CBSE explained.

The sector skill councils will assist in developing skill modules and study materials for different levels of skill subjects. They will also organise competitions/hackathons for students and provide training for teachers.
