National Education policy 2020

Education Policy lays particular emphasis on the development of the creative potential of each individual.

It is based on the principle that education must develop not only cognitive capacities – both the ‘foundational capacities ’of literacy and numeracy and ‘higher-order’ cognitive capacities, such as critical thinking and problem solving – but also social, ethical, and emotional capacities and dispositions.

With various dramatic scientific and technological advances, such as the rise of big data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence, many unskilled jobs worldwide may be taken over by machines, while the need for a skilled workforce, particularly involving mathematics, computer science, and data science, in conjunction with multidisciplinary abilities across the sciences, social sciences, and humanities, will be increasingly in greater demand.

Key Principles of NEP

  • Emphasize Conceptual Understanding
    Rather than rote learning and learning-for-exams
  • Unique Capabilities Recognizing, identifying them in each student.
  • Critical thinking and Creativity
    To encourage logical decision- making and innovation
  • Continuous Review
    Based on sustained research and regular assessment by educational experts.
