Samagra Shiksha Scheme

Samagra Shiksha Scheme is an integrated school education scheme that provides help to states from pre-school to senior secondary level.

Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan – Objectives

The Ministry of Human Resource Development of the Government of India launched this scheme. Its administration is handled by the Department of School Education and Literacy.

  • The system was created in order to improve the quality of school education.
  • By treating school holistically as a continuum from preschool to primary, upper primary, secondary, and senior secondary levels, the Scheme represents a paradigm shift in the conceptual design of school instruction.
  • The program was designed with the overarching purpose of improving school performance as evaluated by fair chances for schooling and equitable learning results.

The Ministry of Education will launch the NIPUN Bharat Programme in June 2021, with the goal of meeting the learning needs of children aged three to nine years.

The Genesis of Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan

The Samagra Shiksha Scheme was developed by combining the three initiatives listed below to ensure an integrated and holistic school education:

  • (RMSA) Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan
  • (SSA) Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan
  • (TE) Teacher Education

The idea is to regard education as a seamless transition from preschool to primary, upper primary, secondary, and senior secondary levels. It aims to improve educational quality at all levels by integrating the two T’s – Teachers and Technology.

Under the auspices of Samagra Shiksha, the Ministry of Human Resource Development is executing the Scheme of Vocationalisation of School Education.

Under the Vocationalisation of School Education scheme, a vocational subject is offered alongside general education for Classes IX to XII in order to provide the essential employability and vocational skills for a variety of vocations.
