CBSE to launch new courses

With the changing perspective of society and therefore of the students, the need of upgrading education has finally been met with. Central Board of Secondary Education, CBSE has now decided to introduce more career-oriented courses this session onwards. These courses will help the students choose more specific fields of study which will be a great eye-opener for specific key skills and interest that they have.

After experimenting with a new course of Financial Markets planning in eleventh standard curriculum, the CBSE has decided over a few other courses as well which will be introduced in the forthcoming session. These courses include ‘Human Rights and Gender Studies’, ‘Heritage Crafts’, ‘Film and Media Studies’, ‘Visual Arts and Graphic Designing’, ‘Art Appreciation’ etc. These courses are being designed with assistance from the National Council of Educational Research and Training and would cater to the professional outlook of the students for their future. A phased format is being thought over to introduce these courses and very soon they would be a part of the curriculum prescribed for the +1 and +2 levels.
