Panel meets with some shortlisted candidates for subsequent NCERT chief

The committee to pick out the following director of the Nationwide Council of Academic Analysis and Coaching (NCERT) held interactions with a couple of shortlisted candidates on Thursday, sources stated. The autonomous physique, which assists and advises the federal government on insurance policies for enchancment at school training, has not had a full-time director for greater than a 12 months now.
The five-year time period of the earlier full-time director of the autonomous physique, Prof Hrushikesh Senapaty’s, resulted in November, 2020. Since then, Prof Sridhar Srivastava has been holding the place as director in-charge.
Sources stated Prof Srivastava was among the many candidates with whom the search-cum-selection committee held interactions on Thursday. The opposite candidates embrace head of the NCERT’s Division of Training in Social Sciences, Dr Gouri Srivastava, and the principal of the Bhubaneswar Regional Institute of Training (RIE), Prof PC Agarwal. The RIE is a constituent unit of the NCERT.

The subsequent NCERT director will play a key function within the drafting and adoption of the Nationwide Curriculum Framework (NCF), which might be revised primarily based on the suggestions made by a 12-member Nationwide Steering Committee appointed by the Centre in September final 12 months. The steering committee, headed by former ISRO chairman Okay Kasturirangan has held a number of conferences to date. It’s going to develop 4 NCFs — for college training; early childhood care and training; instructor training; and grownup training. The NCF on faculty training will inform adjustments at school textbooks.
