According to the United Nations, “We must take bold steps now, to create inclusive, resilient, quality education systems fit for the future.” Undoubtedly, the National Education Policy 2020 is a bold step toward empowering 21st-century students with future-proof skills, knowledge, and creativity.

The National Education Policy 2020, launched on 29th July 2020 by the Ministry of Education (MoE), paves the way for transforming elementary and higher education in India. It is the first education policy of the 21st century that replaces the previous national education policy, formulated way back in 1986 and revised in 1992 and 1998.

The National Education Policy 2020 aims to universalise the Indian education system and make the country a Global Knowledge Superpower over the next decade.

The National Education Policy 2020 aims to universalise the Indian education system and make the country a Global Knowledge Superpower over the next decade. It encourages Integrated, Holistic, Engaging, and Enjoyable learning in students through suitable changes in school curriculum and pedagogy.

The two most important highlights of the National Education Policy 2020 include:

  • Replacing the 10+2 education system with a new 5+3+3+4 structure.
  • Universalising education at all levels, from the basic pre-school to the secondary level.

Let’s get into their details one by one!

Change in academic structure to 5+3+3+4

Universalisation of Education in India

How LEAD Schools are NEP compliant

  1. National Education Policy 2020 5+3+3+4
    The National Education Policy 2020 expands the age bracket of schooling from 6-14 years to 3-18 years. As a result, the number of years in each stage of education will be less while students will be spending more time in school overall.
    The revised policy brings a new “5+3+3+4” pedagogical model that replaces the old “10 + 2” education structure. The details of the National Education Policy 2020 5+3+3+4 formula are as follows.

    1. Foundational Stage (5 years) – This phase is further divided into two parts – 3 years of Pre-school/Anganwadi and subsequent 2 years in primary school in Grades 1-2. The preference will be for multilevel, flexible, play/activity-based learning. This stage covers the ages of 3-8 years.
    2. Preparatory Stage (3 years) – This stage will be from classes 3 to 5, covering the students of age 8-11 years, focusing on foundational learning and developing students’ basic literacy and numeracy skills. The students will gradually be introduced to subjects like Science, Art, and Mathematics.
    3. Middle Stage (3 years) – The middle stage comprises students aged 11 to 14 from grades 6 to 8. In this phase, students will develop core academic and life skills and get familiar with the more abstract concepts in Science, Arts, Mathematics, Humanities, and Social Sciences. This stage follows an interdisciplinary and experiential curriculum and pedagogical approach.
    4. Secondary Stage (4 years) – Covering students between 14 and 18 ages from classes 9 to 12, this phase will allow learners to choose from a wide range of subjects. The secondary stage is divided into classes 9-10 and 11-12 and follows a multi-disciplinary approach.
  2. Universalisation of Education in India
    Apart from introducing the National Education Policy 2020 5+3+3+4 formula, the revised policy also focuses on providing students universal access to quality education at all levels. Accordingly, the National Education Policy 2020 recommends the following key initiatives:

    1. Investment in Digital Infrastructure – The National Education Policy 2020 calls for investment in open and interoperable public digital infrastructure, development of online teaching tools and platforms, creation of digital repositories and virtual labs, and organising online assessments and exams to improve India’s device penetration.
    2. Embrace EdTech – The NEP Policy 2020 strongly emphasises utilising modern tools and technologies to improve learning and make education accessible to every child. It encourages EdTech companies and startups to develop and implement learning management systems, assessment platforms, ERP software, online laboratories, etc., to provide students access to tech-driven learning programmes.
    3. The Promotion of Multilingualism – Various studies have proven that students learn concepts better when taught in their mother tongue/home language. With that in mind, the revised policy promotes multilingualism and recommends teachers use a bi-lingual approach to interact with learners. It also encourages students to learn three languages; at least two of them should be native to India. The purpose is to broaden their cultural sensitivity, awareness, and tolerance.
    4. Blended Models of Learning – While promoting digital education and learning, the National Education Policy 2020 gives equal importance to face-to-face in-person learning. Therefore, it recommends identifying different models for blended learning to replicate various subjects appropriately.
    5. A Strong Emphasis on Teacher Empowerment – Lastly, the new education policy suggests teachers and principals undergo rigorous training to become high-quality online content creators. It considers educators the heart of the learning process and recommends a complete overhaul of the teaching profession in India.
