High-End 21st Century Skills (HE21) Ambedkar Schools of Specialised Excellence (ASOSEs) aim to build a strong academic foundation for students while ensuring an industry-oriented curriculum design. HE-21 ASOSEs focus on skill and entrepreneurship development, preparing students for 21st-century job roles and higher education pathways. The curriculum and pedagogy prescribed by the Delhi Board of School Education focuses on inquiry-based approach and experiential learning, enabling students to excel in their chosen pathways.
These schools offer six specializations that focus on skills relevant to the fast-changing needs of the 21st century: Coding, Robotics and Automation, Electromechanical Production, Digital Media & Design, Fashion Design & Aesthetics, and Finance & Accounting. These skillsets pave way for career opportunities that are not only aspirational but also allow for upward mobility. In Grades 9 and 10, students undergo the specializations in a taster format, giving them a preliminary exposure to each area. There is a strong emphasis on providing hands-on and immersive learning experiences across different subjects. In Grade 11, students choose one area of specialization in which they can build skills and expertise.

Advances in sensing, computation and autonomy are enabling robots and autonomous systems to enter real-world domains such as manufacturing, defense, medical, agriculture etc. where machines must work alongside and interact with humans. We are entering an era of “manned + unmanned” teaming where humans and robotic systems must work together towards common goals. Intelligent robotic teammates, have the potential to expand human capabilities, reduce risk of harm, increase safety, productivity and ultimately the quality of life for our people. Competency in human-robot collaboration is crucial for our country such that robotic systems enhance the capabilities of our workforce rather than trigger replacement.
