Jaipur, 27th September 2021: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in its recent announcement said it was to conduct webinars for Principals and teachers to launch ‘Financial Literacy workbook’ from Standard VI. The course would be an optional subject. Taking this initiative ahead are Podar World Schools, who will be introducing ‘Financial Literacy’ & ‘Entrepreneurship’ as part of their course curriculum. The curriculum will be introduced for all students from Standard III to Standard VIII. CBSE in collaboration with National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI), will also be launching a student’s workbook on ‘Financial Literacy’. Mr. Raghav Podar, Chairman Podar Education said, “Students must be able to smoothly transition from the classroom to the real world. Financial literacy is a crucial skill to develop in children from an early age in order to prepare them for their 21st century lives. We will be introducing financial literacy and entrepreneurship from grade 3. The objective is to prepare students to be self-reliant, to be able to make intelligent, informed choices with respect to earning, prioritising, investing and saving money. Apart from financial literacy, Podar is also launching Entrepreneurship as part of our curriculum, where children will be given hands on experience and case studies to develop an entrepreneurial bent of mind. Our country needs to create high quality job creators, and not only job seekers. Empowering students to acquire entrepreneurial skills will help them to act, solve problems, think critically, and seek out opportunities and make a difference in the world. We place a strong emphasis on experiential and application-based learning, which are vital in preparing students to become responsible entrepreneurs.” Podar have already launched Artificial Intelligence as a subject in their curriculum, and will now be introducing Financial Literacy, Entrepreneurship and Web Designing as part of their curriculum..
