Typography

Patna: Anjani Kumar Singh, Principal Secretary, Education Department, on Wednesday, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the British Council to equip Bihar's secondary schools with tools to develop entrepreneurial skills among the students.

The MoU was signed with Lisa Heydlauff, the country head of 'Going to School', an NGO, that would reach out to 1,000 schools in Bihar in the first phase.

Under the scheme, teachers would be trained to teach business skills to students.

With the use of several books and DVDs prepared just for the purpose, secondary school students would learn the basic skills to operate a business.

"The idea is to change the mindset of the students who are, traditionally, drawn towards jobs and don't think about becoming an entrepreneur," Heydlauff said.

The state government also signed a MoU with British Council India Director Rob Lynes to train 160 teachers in English under the Bihar Language Initiative Secondary Schools (BLISS) project. These teachers, in turn, teach interactive English to students in secondary schools.

Bihar Middle Education Council director Rajesh Bhushan was also present on the occasion.
