CBSE introduces vocational courses oriented towards career in sports

The CBSE Board has introduced new vocational courses for classes 11 and 12 like Body Science, Fitness, Aerobics and Health. The only idea to propose these courses to the students is that they can also pursue a career in sports. The course is also expected to create more awareness of sports in the country.

An education consultant said, these courses are available under the Cambridge Board of Education and they are offered to students from class 9 onwards. But the international curriculum can be accessed only by the cream of our society, whereas the CBSE addresses the masses. So I am sure such a course would be of great use to those aspiring to become sports persons.

The report informs that yet the course details mentioned, it is expected to contain elements currently being offered by EduSports, one of the first organisations to come out with a specialised programme for physical education and sports.Fitness and health components are also expected, in addition to tips on how to become a sports entrepreneur.

Schools opting for the course should either have a gym or a tie-up with a facility nearby where practical classes can be held for students. A PG teacher in physical education is also required. The CBSE has also proposed to introduce another vocational course on sports journalism if the body science course gets a good response from students.
