Life Skills Education for the youth has been in an acute demand globally.

The CBSE has already incorporated the Skill based Education in course curriculum from class 1 to x.

In India, the progress in this area looks slow due to lack of awareness and sacristy of faculty. The Life Skills based education is required both at Schools as well as at Graduate level.

The evaluation and assessment are based on various areas as described in CBSE Teacher’s Manual in three parts. The 2 consists of Co-Scholastic Area in two parts-
A- Life Skills (Thinking Skills, Social Skills and Emotional Skills)
B- Attitudes and values (towards Teacher, School mates, School Activities, Environment & Value system).
