Did you know, we are one of the lowest financially literate countries in the world? The reason behind this is the lack of financial education. Our current education system’s curriculum comprises everything from the history of China to algebraic theorems but doesn’t involve the basics of finance that every individual must know. Therefore, being aware of the importance of financial education, we at Prodigee, while creating our practical life curriculum have focused to create a separate practical money skills module that ensures that the child is taught the entire paradigm of financial education sequentially from class VII to Class XII which includes savings, budgets, the banking system, basics of insurance, taxation, wealth management, stocks, investments, borrowing, retirement planning, and lot more.
Personal management is a combination of behavioral skills that focus on how people manage themselves in their work and life. Personal management is a continuous process in which individuals set goals and outline short- and long-term strategies to fulfill those goals. Being a completely individualized process, no two people can have the same approach towards their goals and self-management. Developing your productivity and behavioral skills to manage both your time and your commitments is important to succeed in life, thus being known to the importance of personal management, our expert academicians and experts while creating Life Skills Curriculum for school going students, have initiated their efforts in creating a distinct personal management module that entails details of every little life skill that an individual needs to grow and excel in life.
Having a hobby or a specific interest that you’re passionate about enriches your life while helping you have a different perspective on things. Irrespective of the type of hobby or interest you engage yourself into, you will be exposed to new ideas, growth while exposing you to new opinions and to new ways to look at life. Moreover, when we look into our current education system, the interests and hobbies of the child are suppressed, and they are not allowed to develop their interests predominantly because of the lack of knowledge and clarity on whether these can be converted into successful careers. Thus, with our understanding of the various aspects of a practically successful life, we at Prodigee focus on encouraging the child to pursue their hobbies into successful career options under our life skills education curriculum have also created a separate module for hobby and interest management to help school-going growing minds explore their interests and hobbies while enhancing their skills and paving their distinct path towards their career niche.
Being known to our holy scriptures is very important for a growing child, to have an unbiased opinion about the different religions, castes, creed and color. Our education system along with the academic subjects should also plan to teach the aspects of religion, the origins of myths and the histories of various religious institutions, to help them as a growing individual see all religions as part of the same phenomenon and not see one as inherently superior to the others. Therefore, we at Prodigee understand the significance of teaching holy scriptures and have developed an entire practical study module on Holy Scriptures which is again being taught to the child from Class VII onwards. The aspects of this module include rites of passage, education and child psychology, as well as discussion of the moral issue of religious education for the children. Our aim to educate the children of the Holy scriptures is to help them understand the concept of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam i.e the Entire World is One Big Family and we are not supposed to fight or have differences amongst ourselves.
Career management is one’s conscious planning of activities and engagements undertaken in the course of life for better fulfillment, growth and financial stability. Today, managing and planning careers is one of the major hurdles faced by children, youth and adults. Do you know why? Because we are still a part of an education system where IAS, engineering, medical, banking and law are the only handful of successful career options that a child is aware of, and thus they either follow wrong advice or try to copy and follow the path which others are taking. Thus with a focus of helping a child explore their opportunities, diverge and pave their way, we at Prodigee, while working on our new age practical life curriculum, have researched and found more than 50 career options and made sure that our career management study module helps both the child and the parents in being aware of these so that they can land upon an informed decision while choosing the career niche that is aligned as per the child’s interest and passion.
Effective communication, the most sought-after quality that’s essential for a successful future career of a student. Effective communication enhances the ability to understand while making a difference in the personality of students. The act of communicating draws on several interpersonal and intrapersonal skills. These include speaking, listening, observing, questioning, processing, analyzing and evaluating. And we at Prodigee being an ambitious education company, are well versed with the importance of effective communication skills, thus to help “Make better humans” within our life skills-based study curriculum have also focused and worked on creating separate communication skills activity-based learning module that would help the school going students understand the importance of effective communication, its various aspects and work to enhance their communication skills to compete in this competitive era and succeed in life.
We are all aware of the sad state of affairs today regarding the preparation of competitive examinations. Almost every child is pushed hard from Class X or XI onwards to prepare for the handful of successful career options known for generations. Being already burdened with academic stress, the children are forced to get themselves involved in learning things for competitive examinations, and this certainly affects the mental ability of the child. The big question that arises here is, why can’t we start helping our growing generation prepare for competitive exams from the beginning? Why do we have to get them introduced to a whole new range of complex study subjects like quantitative aptitude, logical thinking, reasoning, and problem-solving in their higher classes? Prodigee with our expert educationists and academicians along with our other life skill curriculum modules have also worked on creating a separate advanced module to help students learn and prepare for future competitive examinations through a structured study curriculum.
Knowing our surroundings carries the utmost importance today. We all are directly or indirectly affected by what goes around us and thus we need to be aware of what’s happening in our surroundings. We being a part of the ultimate globalization today have no other choice than to be well-informed individuals of this global community. Prodigee as an ambitious education company while creating its life skill practical curriculum has especially worked to create a current affairs module that focuses on acquainting the students regarding the current affairs of the world thus helping them become informed, responsible and intelligent individuals we need for our future.
We at Prodigee are well-versed with the importance of teaching the insights of our country.
