Skill development vocational courses | CBSE to make students employable

Taking education a step further, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has now introduced Skill Development in schools from standard 9 onward.
With its recent changes in curriculum, the Board has asked affiliated schools to start Skill development vocational courses. This will prepare students to handle challenges of the job market with ease.
CBSE has shortlisted some private institutes which offer special training programs for Skill development. 
In order to take this initiative to a maximum number of students, CBSE has asked schools to tie up with these private institutes. 
The list, drawn up by CBSE, includes 35 skill knowledge providers in 11 areas, including retail, information technology, security, automobile, banking and insurance, hospitality and tourism, mass media and media production, health and beauty, music production, design, and medical diagnostics. 

CBSE Chairman, Mr.Vineet Joshi said, “This course is essential for students to excel and emerge successful in real life situations of work. 
This course will give them basic information of a working environment as they graduate from school. Skilled manpower and right exposure will help students to attain the best positions in various organizations.” 
The objective of introducing such a subject is to create a positive impact for the inclusive growth of students. 
Students studying in CBSE-affiliated schools will be given a choice to opt for these competency-based skill courses along with the general academic subjects in order to enhance their skills in their chosen field. 
Skill development courses will not only ensure employment of students post school but will also help them in pursuing higher studies in their favorite field due to the academic teaching given to them during this span.
