The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) to train and upgrade the skills of teachers and students in CBSE affiliated schools.
CBSE President Manoj Ahuja, speaking about the signed letter of intent, said that the collaboration between CBSE and AICTE will be long to allow students, who have been sensitized to emerging fields of technology, to get the proper advice.
AICTE President Anil D Daharsabuddhe said AICTE’s digital learning platforms should transform the way students have learned so far.
As part of this program, CBSE and AICTE will initiate teacher training programs in CBSE schools, among others at the AICTE Academy for Training and Learning (ATAL), the National Alliance for Technology Education (NEAT).
AICTE Member Secretary Rajeev Kumar said the initiative will also take India’s education sector to a new level. The institutions will also host national and regional webinars and social media campaigns to encourage students.
The Central Council for Secondary Education has requested affiliated schools to update the number of teachers available as examiners in the Affiliated Schools Information System online. Board Arthritis activated the OASIS link on the website as of April 5, 2021. The last update date for information on the OASIS link is April 10, 2021.
The board identified a shortage of examiners for the 12th grade skills tests and found that many schools were not uploading the full list of teachers to the CBSE OASIS portal.
