The landscape of knowledge is changing quickly on a global scale. The fact that the Indian educational system has not changed in the past 34 years and is solely based on grades with an excessive emphasis on traditional assessments and examinations can be a little alarming. With the growing gap between one’s skill set and the job market, the government has made the much-needed intervention of new policy.
The National Education Policy of India 2020 (NEP 2020) outlines the vision of India’s new education system, which replaces the previous National Policy on Education (1986). The policy establishes a comprehensive framework for primary, secondary, and higher education, as well as vocational training, in both rural and urban India. By 2030, the policy intends to transform India’s education system.
As a result, it is critical that schools at all levels implement this policy and effectively empower the next generation. Here are some strategies to consider in order to make the school NEP compliant.

– Focus on the core concept
The curriculum content in each subject has already been reduced to its core essentials in order to make room for critical thinking and inquiry-based learning. Change the teaching method to one that focuses on conceptual understanding rather than rote learning and exam preparation. Ascertain that the content also focuses on ideas, applications, and problem solving.
– Experiential, Practical, Discovery & Fun-Based Learning
Adopt experiential learning. Make sure that the teaching is more interactive, that questions are encouraged, and that classroom sessions include more fun, creative, collaborative, and exploratory activities for students to engage in deeper and more practical learning. This must be implemented within each subject, and exploration of relationships between subjects should be encouraged and emphasised.
– Real-life application of learning
When concepts and theories are taught through using real-life examples, they become much easier to understand and remember. It enables students to advance and can provide motivation for them to learn and care about what is going on in the classroom. It is critical to teach concepts and skills that will benefit the child for the rest of his life.
– Start teaching coding in the early years
NEP has mandated teaching coding in early years. With various advancements in science and technology, such as the rise of Big Data, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence, many unskilled jobs around the world may be taken over by machines. Coding is one 21st-century skill that will prepare kids for the future. If the school finds it difficult to incorporate it into the current curriculum, they can use summer camps or weekend sessions.
– Stem Education
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Previously, Technology and Engineering were not given much weight in school curricula. NEP has prioritised the introduction of more abstract concepts in these subjects. Schools must ensure that students are interested in these areas of study and that adequate materials are available.
Our educational system is at a pivotal point, and the current shift will be remarkable. ALLEN IntelliBrain offers excellent B2B Educational programs for schools, such as Skool Plus Workbooks, ALLEN STEM LAB, and ALLEN Campus Coding Program, to promote holistic education. These programs are completely in accordance with the NEP 2020 and are highly recommended for schools to incorporate them.
