Signal School students may undergo vocational skill development training, 1.1 crores allocated

The Ahmedabad city’s primary education committee Friday submitted a draft budget with an outlay of Rs 1,067 crore to the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation School Board for the financial year 2023-24.

The proposals include one to provide skill development training to Signal School students before they pass Class 8, in collaboration with Anant National University.

The Signal School scheme was announced in the AMC School Board draft budget last year with a sanctioned budget of Rs 3 crore, for out-of-school children across the city.

The draft budget has earmarked Rs 1.10 crore under the heads of vocational training and students’ skill development, official sources said.

The skill development scheme in the budget includes elocution competitions, swimming, basketball, kabaddi, quiz, essay writing, drawing competitions, and various career guidance programs for class eight students.
