CBSE revamps syllabus and format of vocational courses for class XII

Published On: 07 Aug 2012

 | Last Updated On: 07 Aug 2012

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has made changes to the vocational courses based on the feedback from the industry and academicians. The Board expressed that it is necessary to develop employability skills among students as there is a shortage of trained professionals in the country.

These vocational courses are optional and it is not mandatory for each school to offer these courses. Vocational courses are offered at the 10+2 level and now the curriculum has been changed to include the latest developments. The schools which will offer the new vocational courses have to adopt the new curriculum.

Now, those students appearing for the class XII exam can choose their scheme of studies as given here. The first subject will be English for 100 marks. Then two subjects from the academic stream (humanities/commerce/science) of 100 marks each can be chosen. Two more subjects have to be chosen from the vocational courses, again of 100 marks each. An additional subject of 100 marks can be chosen from the academic stream. Hence, the students’ curriculum scheme will be for 500 marks + 100 marks for the additional subject.

Some of the new vocational courses to be offered are: Food Production, Retail Operations and Services, Front Office Operations, Medical Diagnostics and Foundry Technology.
