CBSE to hold training sessions for schools
NEW DELHI [Maha Media]: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is planning a series of webinars and training sessions for schools to familiarise them about the newly restructured affiliation process, according to officials.
“CBSE has restructured the affiliation process under different categories of applications i.e. fresh affiliation, upgradation, the extension of affiliation etc. To familiarise the schools with the new process and to resolve the queries of the schools, the Board will organise introductory webinars and training session from March 9 to 13,” said CBSE Secretary Anurag Tripathi.
“The registration process for the webinar shall commence from March 1 to March 8, 2021 on the CBSE website. Interested schools can register themselves accordingly. The application for affiliation will be accepted tentatively from March 16,” he added. Restructuring the affiliation system as per various recommendations for systemic reforms laid down in the new National Education Policy (NEP), the board is making the process completely digital and based on data analytics with least human intervention.
The board had revamped its norms in 2018 for granting affiliation to schools, leaving the onus of the infrastructural audit on states and limiting its own role in academic quality monitoring. The CBSE has 24,930 schools affiliated with it across the country and abroad, with over 2 crore students and more than 10 lakh teachers. The affiliation by-laws were formulated in the year 1998.
