The Core skills encompass the most significant aspects of a learner’s holistic growth and learning curve. The objective of the core of curriculum is to scaffold the learning experiences and to relate tacit knowledge with formal knowledge. This involves trans-disciplinary linkages that would form the core of the learning process. Perspectives, SEWA (Social Empowerment through Work and Action), Life Skills and Research would be the constituents of this ‘Core’.
