CBSE-i provides opportunities for extended learning and helps develop perspectives, with emphasis on research orientation and social empowerment. It aims to promote critical and creative thinking skills, effective communication skills, interpersonal and collaborative skills and information and media skills.
Key subjects like English, Second Language, Science, Mathematics, and Social Science have a new learning approach. Social Science has a globalised approach, whilst incorporating locally relevant components depending on where the school is located, and Science has an added enrichment component.
While the syllabus is based on the guidelines of the National Curriculum Framework – 2005 and the National Council for Educational Research and Training (NCERT), there is more flexibility in the courses that would focus on world geography and regional issues. The heart of the programme consists of core components like development of Perspectives, Research, Life Skills, and SEWA (Social Empowerment through Work and Action).
