Bhubaneswar: The University Grants Commission (UGC) has framed a curriculum on Life Skills (Jeevan Kaushal) to impart soft skills to undergraduate students. Imparting soft skills to students is one of the ten initiatives of UGC quality mandate, official sources said.

As per UGC, the new curriculum is 8 credit course for about 120 hours. It will comprise four areas - Communication Skills, Professional Skills, Leadership and Management Skills and Human Values.

Earlier, UGC had constituted a working group to prepare "Facilitators' Guidelines for Life Skills Curriculum (Jeevan Kaushal)" to develop a guide for teachers for its implementation. The manual is likely to help teachers in pedagogic, assessment and other relevant areas related to modules mentioned in the curriculum.

“The draft manual on "Facilitators' Guidelines for Life Skills Curriculum (Jeevan Kaushal)" is available on UGC website. It has been decided to solicit views/suggestions from stakeholders including teachers, students, researchers and those involved in the field by March 31, 2021,” UGC notification read.
