Adolscence Education Programme

Adolescence Education Program (AEP) launched with the UNFPA support under Country Program -8 (CP-8) has been implemented by 3 National Agencies: National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS), Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) and Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS). The AEP has been the extended version of the Project on “Adolescent Reproductive and Sexual Health (ARSH) in Schools” As an experimental project in 2004. In 2005 the “Project on ARSH in schools” was converted into Adolescent Education Program (AEP) expending its coverage as well as objectives. The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India, which is the executing agency, transferred the AEP along with the other Quality Improvement in Schools (QIS) schemes to the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) effective April, 2006. Hence, NCERT is the coordinating agency for AEP.


Adolescence Education Programme Mandatory School-Based Activities to be Organized by Nodal Teachers and Peer Educators in Addition to 23 Hours Class Room Transaction by Teachers


Rationale: Peer Educators orientation programme was conceptualised in order to engage young people meaningfully in the Adolescence Education Programme (AEP). However, it has been observed that all the schools are not able to engage the peer educators to reach out to other students and further improve the teaching-learning environment in their schools.


After the orientation of peer educators, two sets of activities are suggested for every school that may help in mainstreaming the concerns of Adolescence Education Programme in the school curriculum. These include organisation of theme-based assemblies and activities for classes 8th to 11th. Certain reference documents have also been suggested to facilitate organization of these activities. Peer educators and nodal teachers are also encouraged to look up other resources, such as, refer to other relevant books, newspapers, access internet, to further enhance their knowledge on these issues and also share it with other school students. AEP now supports an Adolescence Resource Centre (ARC) that is a virtual storehouse of several interesting resources including, manuals, teaching learning videos, pictures, archived discussions on educational themes. Please log on to to access different resources related to AEP and submit regular quarterly school based activity reports by using school ID and pass word. The key reference documents mentioned in these guidelines, i.e. NCERT publications on Adolescence Education in Schools: A package of basic materials, Manual (Training and Resource Materials on AEP), a set of four books written by Kamla Bhasin on adolescence, can be accessed from the website.


Guidelines for organising activities:


  1. Integrating AEP themes in the Morning Assembly-All schools have the provision of a morning assembly.It is suggested that once in every month, AEP theme-based assembly is organized in every school participating in the AEP. Besides the themes, certain sub-topics have also been suggested to enable the nodal teacher and peer educators to prepare for the morning assembly. The peer educators-teacher team could also include additional sub-topics that are relevant for their school. Peer educators may also want to share certain experiences in the assembly that are relevant to the theme of the month. Most importantly, it is left to the imagination of the peer educators to organize this morning assembly with the help of their teachers. Given the time constraint during the morning assembly, it is expected that inclusion of a particular theme in the assembly will not take more than 7-10 minutes. In order to have enhanced participation of students, the themes introduced in the morning assembly may be followed by school based activities on the same day. The trained nodal teacher may inform and consult Principal for inclusion of themes in the school time table, so that peer educators and teachers know ahead of time the day on which a particular theme has to be included in the morning assembly and can prepare for it.


  1. Organizing theme-based activities in the school-As a follow up of addressing a particular theme in the morning assembly, it will be important to organise relevant activities that further engage the students and help them in internalising the key learning. A set of theme-based activities and basic reference documents have been suggested in the table above. Teachers’ especially nodal teachers will have to take the lead in organising these activities and peer educators can play an important role in setting up the activity. For example, make posters that announce these activities (date, time and themes) and display them in different parts of the school to encourage participation, set up a classroom or the conference room for organising debates or poster making etc. Suggested guidelines have been provided. Teachers may need to provide more detailed and specific information ahead of time so that all students know about the event and can prepare to participate in it. Announcing a particular activity ahead of time and providing necessary guidelines for participation will encourage student participation in large numbers. At the end, it is essential to synthesise learning and key take home messages.


National Service Scheme

    1. NSS(National Service Scheme) is a noble experiment in academic expansion which inculcates the spirit of voluntary work among the students and teachers through sustained community interactions. By implementing NSS activities in our JNVs, our vidyalayas got closer to the society and it gave an extension dimension to the higher education system as well oriented the student youth to community service while they are studying.


    1. CBSE, New Delhi vide its circular No. 25/20076 dated 30.11.2006 has requested to initiate action for starting a unit of NSS in JNVs. Nominating one NSS programme Officer for NSS unit of JNV who is willing to carryout the programme by way of development of his/her perception about the community. Total 50 volunteers from class IX & XI will be identified and enrolled as volunteers . This will facilitate their skill to perform certain jobs and develop himself/herself as a qualitative leader, organizer and development of his/her personality as a whole. Every JNV where NSS activities are carried out will adopt one village for this purpose


  1. NSS units are functional in 04 JNVs of Lucknow region.
