The Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum (EMC) is not a mere scheme or initiative but an indispensable subject in every Delhi school and will have a long-term impact, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said on Tuesday.
He made the comments at a review meeting for EMC where he interacted with district and zonal EMC coordinators. He also launched a web application for all principals, teachers and EMC coordinators to access related teaching-learning material.
“The purpose of EMC is to work and build on the entrepreneurial mindset of our students. Our school community, especially our teachers and heads of schools need to accept EMC as a subject in their daily teaching and learning. It is not just an initiative or a scheme but an indispensable subject that will equip our students with the mindset and skills needed to triumph in any challenge.
“We have to take the Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum very seriously and, through it, enable students to apply what they learn. EMC as a subject will help students identify opportunities for self and will be successful in careers and life,” Sisodia said.
Describing the important parts of the curriculum, Sisodia said the EMC has been designed in a way that practical and interactive learning is a daily occurrence in every student’s life so that students are able to use their knowledge and apply it in real life.
“The thematic units of EMC include sharing success stories of students and activities, there is a micro-research project where students understand the pros and cons of being an entrepreneur, then we have live interaction with entrepreneurs wherein local and renowned entrepreneurs interact with students.
