New Delhi: To make students capable of establishing their own initiative – aimed at helping them to become entrepreneurs, the Delhi government will launch “entrepreneurship curriculum” for city schools from next session.
Delhi’s deputy CM, Manish Sisodia said that students need to become job providers and this curriculum will train them before they begin college.
“We had launched the ‘happiness curriculum’ in government schools. Now we will launch the entrepreneurship curriculum from the next session onwards for secondary and senior secondary students,” Sisodia said at the first convocation of Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women.
“At such events (convocation) we should also celebrate those students who did not take up jobs and instead chose to provide jobs to others. The definition of patriotism should be extended to those who provide jobs,” he said.
Through this curriculum, the effort would be to raise the aspiration and build the mindset for problem solving and decision making among children from class IX-XII.
Around 1,100 students were awarded degrees at the convocation. Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, who is the chancellor of the varsity, congratulated the students and also suggested that entrepreneurs should be supported by the government when they start out.
