The Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education
in association with the Economic Development Corporation of Goa will train the
higher secondary teachers to be master trainers so as to guide their students
in entrepreneurship and further encourage them to get self-employed.
In this connection, the Goa board on Friday will hold a
daylong workshop on ‘development of entrepreneurship for self-employment among
students’ at the State Council of Educational Research and Training, Porvorim
for higher secondary school teachers.
“It may be recalled that the executive council of the Goa
board in its meeting, had resolved to promote a vibrant entrepreneur culture
and business ecosystem so that young minds are encouraged from beginning, “ Goa
board secretary Bhagirath Shetye said.
“In this direction, to supplement and complement the
syllabus-based education system, the Goa Board of Secondary and Higher
Secondary Education needed to explore the feasibility of co-operating with the
EDC in areas of mutual interest with vision of early orientation of students of
Goa to the culture of entrepreneurship, innovation and business,” he added.
“Consequent to the above resolution of executive council,
two meetings were held by Goa board
officials with EDC officials, and it has been
decided to organise the said workshop with above objectives,” the Goa
board secretary maintained, pointing out that in this regard the higher
secondary schools have been asked to depute one of its teachers either from the
general stream or the vocational stream to participate in this workshop so as
to motivate students in the development in entrepreneurship for
“Teachers attending this workshop will become ‘master
trainers’ and would soon take up the training in this arena for the students in
his/ her schools, in co-ordination with the EDC,” he noted.
