New Delhi : In order to extend Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of Skilled India, National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS) in collaboration of Haryana Vishwakarma Skill University (HVSU) has planned to come up with new concept of “Skill School” where the students will get skill based education from class 1. This Skill School, which is first of its kind initiative will be opened at Palwal district in Haryana. NIOS and HVSU officials discussed the draft of the concept.
Prof. C B Sharma, Chairman, National Institute of Open Schooling told that, the school will be based on Finland model of schooling where interest of students towards skills are explored and based on that, skill based education is imparted. This first of its kind facility will be a state-of-art infrastructure.
Skill School Palwal will be part of Haryana Vishwakarma Skill University. Besides skill education in traditional skills, students will be imparted training in robotics, aero-modelling and other skills for future. The course may have 20 percent theory, 30 percent practical and the rest may be project and training based, he said.
HVSU Vice Chancellor, Shri Raj Nehru shared that, due to unawareness about importance of skill education among the school passouts, results in choosing of wrong careers and thats too in limited domains. This move will help them to get better overview of the opportunities after being skilled.
The school will have regular classroom patron like Ist to 12th standard but the students will be issued vocational education certificates for class 10th and 12th, he added.
