Soft Skill Development
Development of Soft Skills is becoming increasingly important as there is intense competition for the job positions available. The students are able to perform well at the traditional exams but their communication skills are deficient. So soft skill development programmes are carried out to empower them by creating awareness about the current need of the job market and developing confidence to face the challenges of today.
The college conducts remedial coaching for the students who are in need of special care and support in academics. The coaching programme is co-ordinated by a senior faculty nominated by the Principal. The classes are conducted after the regular class hours. The progress of the students is evaluated on the basis of written examination.
Communication plays a vital role in developing the professional self. English language, in particular, has become essential in the lives of young people who aspire to advance their careers anywhere in the world. The language lab provides a facility which allows the student to listen to model pronunciation, repeat and record the same, listen to their performance and compare with the model, and do self-assessment. It helps every learner to learn at their own pace; it is flexible and does not necessarily require a teacher all the time. At the same time, the teacher provides assistance individually and collectively.
Bridge courses are conducted regularly throughout the academic year especially for improving English language. The linguistic skills of the students are improved through motivating the students to take their seminar in English and communicate with the teachers in English etc.
Yoga and Meditation
The Health Awareness Centre of the college organises yoga and meditation programme to the students to promote health and to balance both body and mind. It increases the attention span, improves memory and sharpens the focus of the students. It is also a prolific for stress reduction, and emotional wellness.
The Student Support Centre provides counselling to enhance the life skills of the students at the time of stressful situations, to create inter personal and intra personal understanding, to improve their resilience and empowering them to resolve their problems and to strengthen their capacity in decision making.
