About CBSE-i

Vision

Through CBSE-International, Stepping Stones hopes to provide quality which is equitable, accessible and in tune with the demands of our modern society.

  • A set of materials, print and electronic which help teachers to innovate and create

CBSE-i Concept Note

The Central Board of Secondary Education is a national board with more than 11500 schools affiliated to it within the country and abroad. The students in these schools need a curriculum that is competitive with global trends and current pedagogical patterns.

It is in this context that the CBSE has initiated an International Curriculum or CBSE-i. The Board has operationalised CBSE International CBSE-i as a response to educational needs of millions of learners; in order to provide them with a globally sensitive curriculum that would help Indian learners either to pursue their higher studies in countries abroad or interact meaningfully with global markets for ensuring active participation in the development process.

Mandate

CBSE International (CBSE-i) curriculum content and transaction is more sensitive and responsive to global needs, and is an internationally benchmarked curriculum.

The Board has launched its international curriculum called CBSE-i which aims to carry forward the basic strength of the Indian educational system.

The foundation of core skills in Mathematics and Science education will continue in the international curriculum with a difference. The difference is that Mathematics will be provided at two levels –’Core and Elective’ to cater to the different kinds of learners. Science education in addition to the foundation will also have an extension, on ‘Breakthroughs” which will primarily take into account the latest technological advances in Science and Technology.

While promoting the Creative and Critical Thinking Skills, Effective Communication Skills, Interpersonal Skills – Collaborative Skills along with Information and Media Skills there is an inbuilt flexibility in CBSE-i, as it provides levels of learning to cater to the different pace of learners.

Features of CBSE-i
  • The CBSE International (CBSE-i) provides opportunities for extended learning, development of perspectives, research orientation, SEWA (Social Empowerment through Work and Action) and a more liberal approach towards arts education (both Visual and Performing Arts).
  • It also provides flexibility in learning of languages by giving the opportunity to study English, Hindi, Mother tongue, local language or any of the foreign languages being offered by the Board.
  • It also provides an alternative approach to Mathematics learning by providing for its study at two levels.
  • Social Sciences with valuable historical perspectives and components of the countries in which schools are situated will be added features.
