GOVERNEMNT SKILL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

The development of skills for 500 million Indians in less than 10 years is not only a matter of national urgency; it is astounding in its scale. Thus far, the development of skills has been driven by the requirements of the market; while much progress has been made with considerable help from the private sector, it is a travesty that little has been done to understand the needs of the learners, who are at the heart of the skills development mission

Low labor-cost and a rich talent pool are distinct advantages available to India, clearly powering its global competiveness as a knowledge-based society. Education and training are both strategic necessities, which will deliver employment-enhancing skills, in turn increasing productivity and accelerating the future economic growth of the country.

Depending upon the needs and requirements of each assignment, the investigators and surveyors are selected from our available Data Bank who work under the overall supervision and guidance of the State and Regional Coordinators after due sensitization and orientation.

For Validation of Clusters/ Training Centers/ Assessments / Government, Private CSR Projects

Orientation Training

To ensure quality and completeness of data, orientation training of Investigators is extremely vital. For all consultancy or research projects, an orientation / sensitization program is organized for Field Investigators at the Government ,Private State / District  and Mandal level which is usually of 1-2 day duration or Months programs depending upon the scope & objectives of the study, terms of reference, sample size for field survey, number of stakeholders involved etc. Training also includes mock calls, on the spot checks, back-checks and consistency checks on factual information.

 

Monitoring Supervision

 

Each team functions under an experienced Field Supervisor/Team leader who provides necessary guidance and assistance to the Field Investigators. The Field Supervisor would accompany the team to the field for sample selection and interaction during the initial phase of survey. Thereafter, he conducts random spot checks and back checks on the interviews conducted for ascertaining genuineness and accuracy of data/information.

 

Workshops for Schools, Colleges & Universities

 

The aim of the proposed workshop in Technology, Arts ,Culture, Language is practical: By examining various approaches and modalities of cultural and intercultural learning through the prism of current pedagogical practices, we seek to redefine the goals of “cultural/intercultural/Technologies/Languages” teaching and reassess the role of the Students/Teacher/Facilitator within this new world of technological possibilities.
