The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) launched by the Ministry of Education (MoE) in October 2022 was set up with the target of revolutionising the education system in India.

As a follow-up of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, the development of four National Curriculum Frameworks has been initiated.

These include NCF for School Education, NCF for Early Childhood Care and Education, NCF for Teacher Education, and NCF for Adult Education.

Inputs for these NCFs were sought from stakeholders — including teachers, parents, students, educational institutions, neo- and non-literates, subject experts, scholars, childcare personnel etc.

Along with these inputs, discussions were also held with different organisations, which saw the participation of more than 8,000 diverse stakeholders.

The mobile app survey received feedback from around 1,50,000 stakeholders, while the Citizen-Centric Survey received inputs from more than 12,00,000 stakeholders.

The MoE is now inviting suggestions for the draft of the National Curriculum Framework for School Education.

Designed to be the foundation stone of a child’s life, NEP’s aim is to create a curriculum that emphasises developmental perspectives.

While the NCF for School Education pre-draft is ready, the MoE is asking for suggestions from students, parents, teachers and other professionals on it.

This, the MoE says, will further help NSC to look critically into the different modalities and approaches that the framework proposes.
