Fastudent, India’s first B2B2C education e-commerce marketplace announces the expansion of its subject portfolio section by introducing new vocational subject segments with exclusive books and content that can help students in vocational skills development at senior secondary school level.
The new subjects introduced by Fastudent include Entrepreneurship, Retail Operations, Textile Design, Nail Technology, Floriculture and Music Aesthetics, amongst others. These subjects are targeted at students from Class 9 to Class 12 to engage them with a sense of exploration and discovery - and giving the students an insight into these skill-based streams . Also included are subjects in new non-conventional fields such as like Horticulture, Food Production, Geospatial Technology, Automobile Technology and Dairy Technology.
In the last few years, CBSE has been making an endeavour to introduce vocational subjects to the curriculum with the intent to discourage a system which ties students to a certain stream. Fastudent brings these difficult to access curriculum books to its platform - right from Human rights and Gender Studies, Creative Writing & translation ,Heritage Craft ,Legal Studies to Mass Media, Film and Television.
Speaking on the recent development Geetanjali Khanna, Co-Founder & COO, Fastudent stated, “Dedicated to the cause of improving learning outcomes ,we, at Fastudent , are always committed to bring the best possible curriculum & learning aids to the students. CBSE has been introducing vocational subjects over the years , but access and information to these has always been a pain point. We are excited to announce the comprehensive new subject line of 169 titles for vocational curriculum which gives our students an access to the largest range of Vocational Subjects to choose from. This introduction in our portfolio aims at expanding students knowledge on diverse professions and entice their interest in choosing the right career and make them future ready." she further added.
In the current competitive market scenario, there is now an overpowering need for skilled people. Hence as per the electives of CBSE, schools have been advised to offer vocational courses as an additional subject for Senior secondary students to adopt that can help them in professional skill development at a senior secondary level.These skill development curriculum books will help students to stay ahead of competition starting senior secondary level itself and provide them an opportunity to gain a competitive advantage over other traditional students. Fastudent becomes the only education e-commerce platform to provide the skill development curriculum books Adding to the list, the other subjects that will be available for the students are Visual Arts and Graphic Design, Art Appreciation and Development Studies, Security and Front Office Operations. Fastudent has added all the latest introduced segments to their list and one can now shop for their choice of educational need directly from the website. Apart from curriculum text books, the company also provide an array of reference books and sample papers that will help students to get a complete clench on the subject.
