Central Boards Initiative to Make Education Employment Oriented

The seven national educational institutions including CBSE, NCERT, UGC, AICTE, and higher education departments jointly launch a campaign to initiate skill and employable education. This was proposed by the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship. As per the Ministry of Education, the effort of the government is to create such an ecosystem in which along with educating the youth of India, they can be made employable. Senior officials of the Ministry said that the knowledge and skills of the youth will become the fuel for building a self-reliant India.

The changes taking place in various sectors demand new skills and skilled professionals. To attain this goal skill and employable education will be promoted by the new educational policy. The steering committee headed by K Kasturirangan (former chairman ISRO) proposes a framework for a National Curriculum. This committee is developing four national curriculum frameworks based on the vision of NEP 2020. These include the National Curriculum Framework for School Education, the National Curriculum for Young Child Care and Education, the National Curriculum Framework for Teacher Education, and the National Curriculum Framework for Adult Education.
