New Delhi, Nov 3 (IANS) Kendriya Vidyalaya campuses will now be available for skill development courses after school hours, the human resource development ministry said Wednesday.

The decision was taken by the board of governors of Kendriya Vidyalayas Sangathan, chaired by Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal, following the recommendations of the Academic Advisory Committee of the HRD ministry.

“The minister directed the Kendriya Vidyalayas to prepare a detailed policy, especially with regard to preference to be given to school children for the courses and the skills that may be permitted,” a ministry official said.

“The policy would also incorporate the provision of an exit clause in case evening shifts are required,” he said.

The guidelines for transfer of Kendriya Vidyalaya staff was also revised.

According to the ministry officials, the new system will “provide a fair chance to every employee of getting a choice posting and will be done in a transparent manner.

“Posting to hard stations will be done only after 40 years of age, both for ladies and others, and minimum three years of tenure will be given at the place of first posting,” the official said.

“This will provide a uniform ground for all employees and stop favouritism,” he said.

Other decisions taken by the board include in-service training course for teachers, regional incentive awards and commencing foreign language classes.
