CBSE Signs 15 MoUs for Teachers’ Training and Skill Development in Line with NEP 2020

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has recently entered into 15 memorandum of understandings (MoUs) to support the advancement of Skill Education, Assessment, and Capacity building of teachers. This initiative aligns with the objectives of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, which stresses the importance of stronger collaboration between academia and industry. The goal is to update the curriculum to meet industry requirements and offer internships and apprenticeships to students for valuable industry exposure. Equally important is enhancing teachers’ abilities to achieve the desired outcomes.

CBSE has joined hands with various organizations for skill development, education, and training. Among them are Atal Innovation Mission, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, and various sector skill councils such as 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.

The sector skill councils will contribute by creating skill modules and study materials for different levels, organizing competitions and hackathons for students, and providing teacher training. Educational Initiatives Pvt. Ltd and Oxford University Press India will play a role in developing Training Manuals for Competency Based Capacity Building Programme (CBP) in subjects like English, Maths, Science, and Social Science. They will also update the existing CBP for strengthening Assessment and Evaluation and create training materials for the development of Capacity Building Programme (CBP) on National Curriculum Framework Foundational Stage (NCF-FS), according to CBSE’s statement.
