LIFE SKILLS BASED EDUCATION
| Dr. Indrajit Singh - 16 May 2018

The Life Skills Education for youth had been in an acute demand globally. Various international agencies have strongly recommended Life Skills based education for youth and children and introduced various programmes globally as well as in South Asia. The agencies are WHO, UNICEFF,  UNESCCO etc. The CBSE has already incorporated the Life Skills Education in course curriculum from class 1 to x.
  In abroad, certain Universities has started “Life Skills Education” for graduates & Post Graduates so that to produce more and more  LIFE SKILLS TRAINERS for society, who can take up the responsibility of Life Skills based education for growing children and youth. In India, the progress in this area looks slow due to lack of awareness and sacristy of faculty.
  Our Initiative in Life Skills Education is recognized by national & International Agencies & NGOs. The need of hour is that all Indian Universities also attain Life Skills Education on priority and start professional courses in LSE.
  The Life Skills based education is required both at Schools as well as at Graduate level.
  For placements, companies always look for good personality i.e students having Life Skills. Even after recruitments certain companies they arrange Life Skills Training sessions for their fresh recruits.
  The key issues are risk behavior and poor performance etc. Today there are enough examples that the young generation boys & girls are deviated from path of success even though their parents are well settled and successful in their professional life.
  A big group of youth after their schooling deviate from their path of success due to there is no facility / assistance available for to address them on youth related issues like;   how to
Enhance Life Skills, Interpersonal Relationship Skills, Problem Solving, Coping Skills Ability for Effective handling of real life situations, Enhance Employability Co- mpetition compatibility & Confidence building i.e Over all growth and Personality development for Success.
Life Skills Education at School level
CBSE after eight years research introduced “Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation” up to X class during 2010 with grading system. The CCE is school based evaluation of students that covers all aspects of student’s development. The evaluation and assessment is 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).
Life Skills Education at Graduate and PG  level
The Life Skills Education at Degree level is of great utility and therefore Institutes having Professional & Non professional courses are providing the “Life Skills Education” training in revision of Personality Development Programme (PDP) with the objective of overall grooming of students in Social, Public & Private sector, their own development for functional capabilities and also their responsibility towards nation building. The Institutes are in acute demand of Life Skills Trainers to carry on in house training programme.
            Our VISION
To produce the Qualified “LIFE SKILLS TRAINERS” for the acute demand of Trainers in Educational Industry as well as in Society. To increase avenues of the jobs and placements for the youth who have interest in Life Skills teaching.
There is huge demand of the Life Skills Trainers among the Institutes running the professional courses as well as at School level.
Against the demand, the supply is nearing nil. The institutes are ready to appoint the Trainers for their in house Personality development training to the students. Due to the non availability of the Life Skills Trainers the institutes are depending on market / agencies for the requirement of Personality Development classes. The Trainers from industry are costly proposals.
There are very few Institutes in India and abroad producing the Trainers for Life Skills Education for the training to the students at school level and under graduate & post Graduate level.
     Objectives of the 
          Programme
- To familiarize the students in theoretical foundation in Life Skills Education.
- To train students in Training Methodologies
- To enable students to apply Life Skills in various spheres.
- To develop professionals in Life Skills education.
- To empower youth with the ability to contribute as youth worker specialized in the area of Life Skills Education.
           Avenues
-Acute demand of the requirement of Life Skills / Soft Skills Trainers at higher secondary & senior secondary level (CBSE, ICSE, UP & other state Boards etc.)
-Acute demand of the Life Skills / Personality development trainers at Institutes having Professional & Non-professional courses.
-Public sector school Inspectors are expected to be as experts in Life Skills / Soft Skills for students’ overall evaluation & assessment.
We are intending to introduce new P G courses in Life Skills Education linked with employability. The market size is huge and the requirement of Life Skills Trainers will be in lacks. Accordingly we expect 100 % placement for youth having qualification of Life Skills Education.
In north India itself there is around 3667 Institutes with B. Tech courses & 490 institutes for MBA courses. They require Personality development trainers which is scarcity at present.
In north India there are 5442 CBSE schools those have acute demand of qualified Life Skills trainers to teach and evaluate  under CBSE programme of CCE.
