NEW DELHI: University Grants Commission (UGC) has announced draft National Credit Framework (NCrF) awareness workshops being organised jointly by a high-level committee constituted by the government of India.

The workshops' primary objective is to realise the intent of the national education policy (NEP) 2020. NEP 2020 promotes the integration of academic and vocational areas to achieve multidisciplinary education. The NCrF is a comprehensive framework that enables integration from three domains including academic learning, vocational learning, and experiential learning from school to higher education.

To create awareness about the framework among shareholders, half-day workshops are being organised. These shareholders will learn how the NCrF enables a learner to move between academic and vocational domains, exit, and re-enter programmes by accumulation and transferring credits.

The workshops will steered by the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) in five zones- IIT Delhi in the north, IIT Bombay in the West, IIT Guwahati in the north-east zone, IIT Bhubaneshwar in the east-central zone and IIT Madras in the south. The institutions will hold the workshops in hybrid mode under the aegis of the minister of education.

UGC requests the vice-chancellors and representative of institutions from the states and union territories to attend the workshop in the IITs in their respective zones.
