The National Credit Framework aims to enable the integration of academic and vocational domains to ensure flexibility and mobility between the two, reads the official statement

“As per the perspectives of the NEP 2020, the Committee will develop four National Curriculum Frameworks- i.e., the National Curriculum Framework for School Education, National Curriculum for Early Childhood Care and Education, National Curriculum Framework for Teacher Education and National Curriculum Framework for Adult Education,” the Education Ministry had said earlier. Further, NCERT has decided to reduce the syllabus and textbooks for the academic sessions 2022-23 across all classes. The new textbooks based on National Curriculum Framework are likely to be introduced by NCERT from the academic session 2023-24.

The NCF has five categories including classroom teaching, laboratory and class projects, sports and games, yoga, physical activities, performing arts, music, crafts and bagless days. The third category is all about yearly or half-yearly examinations, class tests, quizzes, and assessments. The fourth and fifth categories include vocational education and training, field visits, project work; and job training, internship, apprenticeship and experiential learning.
