CBSE launches Skill Module on ‘Handicrafts’ for classes 6 to 8




The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in collaboration with Handicrafts and Carpet Sector Skill Council (HCSSC) has launched a Student Handbook for the Skill Module on ‘Handicrafts’ for Classes 6 to 8. The handbook will cover two modules – papier mache and fashion jewellery. “I appreciate the efforts of the academic wing of HCSSC for developing this handbook for the students and do hope that this module shall help in creating awareness about the rich cultural heritage and traditions of India as has also been envisioned in the NEP-2020. I also hope that such courses will help to build an entrepreneurial mindset amongst students at a young age,” said Manoj Ahuja, IAS, Chairman, CBSE.
