In line with National Education Policy and Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) ongoing efforts through the Handbook on 21st Century Skills and Employability Skills coursework, CBSE, UNICEF and YuWaah (Generation Unlimited in India) are collaborating towards making 21st Century Skills accessible to CBSE students. In continuation of the ongoing collaborations on life skills, CBSE, UNICEF and YuWaah will also work together on career guidance, as well as enabling access and engagement of students in volunteering opportunities.
A Statement of Intent was signed to mutually agree on the areas of collaboration and key milestones therein, for working together towards these goals.
The meeting also marked agreement on the roll-out of the Passport to Earning (P2E) initiative for CBSE students, wherein they shall be upskilled with key 21st century skills mapped to CBSE’s employability skills curriculum. Based on the pilot, the initiative will be scaled to reach all students, including scaling teacher training and capacity building to enable the same. The P2E initiative is part of a multi-stakeholder, global partnership between UNICEF, Generation Unlimited, Microsoft and Accenture, where Capgemini is a key partner in enabling the scaling of this e-learning solution in India.
