The CBSE honoured 15 mentors and 32 teachers on Tuesday at the India International Center for their efforts to promote Continuous Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE).

Speaking at the awards function, minister of state for human resource and development D Purandeswari, said, “With 13 crore children going to government schools, there is a challenge to provide not just quantity but quality education as well. To achieve this, the CCE has been implemented to bring about a paradigm shift from rote learning. It aims at child centric education.”

The multi-pronged approach of the Mentor-Monitor framework exercise is based on two core objectives, one that the implementation of CCE has to be in letter and spirit and not a procedure on paper and two, it makes working with teachers and school leaders possible.

According to the CBSE chairman Vineet Joshi, “Mentors and empowered teachers play an important role in CCE. They are the hallmark of education. The awards are a token of respect to their valuable contribution to the Indian education system.”

Anshu Vaish, secretary, department of school education and literacy, ministry of human resource development, said, “There is a need to build mutual respect as the foundation of learning. RTE and CCE together make self-learning and thinking possible.”

The Mentor awards were established to recognise the efforts of a few principals selected to act as Mentors and to promote Mentor-Monitor framework. This is first batch of mentors to receive this newly constituted award by the CBSE. Each mentor is a principal of a school. Fifteen mentors were identified by CBSE to help schools build capacity within the schools to implement CCE effectively
