I am delighted to introduce our special Innovative SVSU Sr. Secondary Skill School (Feeder School) affiliated with CBSE. It is first such School in India aligned with the NEP-2020 and NSQF to promote Skill based education from IX standard. This is the only School and first School in India that is a vocationally integrated. Skill and general education integrated right at class 9th. This School provides flexibility to children right at the class 9th to choose what his/ her own choices. Students have a choice to go for variety of vocational subjects. In this School the students will be introduced to the world of current and emerging vocations at an early stage of their development. This model of integrated education will provide them with opportunities to pursue higher vocational education as well or enter into the employment market as a skilled resource, in various job roles of their interest. This School will sensitize the academia of India to think over the irrelevant aspects of existing schooling. Number of dropout of students is huge challenge in our country. There are scores of reasons behind this unfortunate trend. We should ponder over some major issues: Low income group is also a reason of dropout. Apart from that the students who are continue with their studies, they have their own reservation our the schooling patterns. For instance Lack of engagement in the school is a serious concern. When students feel they are not getting right direction. When they feel education is becoming very boring they become casual with it. Amidst this scenario, younger generation has new hopes in store. This school of our University offers solutions to above cited all problems. We have a successful model of innovative Skill School.
Our students who have joined feeder School since 2021 have picked up subjects like artificial intelligence, data science, information technology. There are many students who have picked sports as an important subject. Actually SVSU innovative Skill School is giving flexibility and choices. Students have freedom to opt what they want to do. What subjects they want to study. When they are comfortable with it and it provides and engaging environment in the campus. What students have to do multiple things. It actually nurture the individualty of the child. I ask all of you to come and visit the SVSU Innovative Skills School.
