AICTE Announces internships to One Lakh Students on skill Training Courses

The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) in line with the new National Education Policy 2020 (NEP) has designed a new model curriculum, and according to the council, it will be launched shortly.

As per Anil Sahasrabudhe, chairman, AICTE, they had introduced the first version of the model curriculum in 2017, before NEP 2020 was prepared.

Sahasrabudhe participated in a panel discussion on “Multidisciplinary and Holistic Education” as part of a two-day conference, focusing on the implementation of NEP, which was inaugurated at Science City on January 5, 2022.

Speaking about the launch, Sahasrabudhe said, “The modern curriculum comes into force from time to time. The first version of the model curriculum was implemented way back in 2017. Now, it’s already four years and the curriculum has again been revised. You will have the next model curriculum any time soon, maybe in the next fortnight.”

This is still called a model curriculum. Since it comes from a regulatory body, people assume that this is mandatory. However, every university is autonomous. They can make changes in the curriculum because what we have prepared is a suggestive model,

He further added.

The NEP 2020 aims to bridge the gap between the current state of learning outcomes and what is required to be bridged through undertaking major reforms that bring the highest quality, equity, and integrity into the system, from early childhood care and education through higher education.

India should aim to have an education system by 2040 that is second to none, with equitable access to the highest-quality education for all learners regardless of social or economic backgrounds.

National Education Policy 2020 recognizes the importance of leveraging the advantages of technology while acknowledging its potential risks and dangers. It is carefully designed and appropriately scaled for pilot studies to determine how the benefits of online or digital education can be reaped while addressing or mitigating the downsides.
