For schools following CBSE, State boards, ICSE, IB, NIOS, ISC, CIE, IGCSE, and any other board. Although there are many institutes in education and training that have joined hands with Schools to provide training only a few are doing justice. The schools must look at the following parameters before tying up with any institutes, such as training experience in the latest technologies and future skills development, Vocational courses, Course content, Pool of Trainers with global certifications, Advanced Labs, tie-ups with industry leaders, tie-ups with certification bodies, All India presence (for a chain of schools), International certifications…
Moving away from a rigid content-driven memorization learning system to experiential learning and critical thinking would require nothing short of a revolutionary change in the attitudes of the people running the education system, let alone the attitudinal changes amongst the teachers, students, and parents. This means that thousands of schools and colleges would need capacity building and reorientation about the operational aspects of implementing a mega program with many experiential goals.
How the schools can implement NEP 2020? The structure of education is to be divided into the preparatory stage, middle stage, and secondary stage.
