Jawahar Knowledge Centre (JKC)
With an aim to equip the students with the necessary skills to face challenges in their pursuit for employment, Jawahar Knowledge Centre (JKC) was established in this college during the year 2005 - 2006. It is aimed at providing communication skills as well as soft skills to all the students of third year graduation, so that they can leave the college with confidence and awareness. A well equipped JKC Lab was established and a Coordinator is appointed to conduct the training programme. JKC is a wonderful initiative taken up by the Commissioner of Collegiate Education and implemented in more than 100 colleges all over the State. Every year two or three training programmes are conducted successfully in batches, each batch consisting of 50 students.
This institution has implemented the JKC initiative as per the guidelines of the CCE and the students are very much benefited by this initiative. Training is also given to the JKC Coordinator, some English faculty and Science faculty every year by the CCE in communication skills and analytical skills. The trained faculty members are immensely benefited by the exposure given to them on recent and advanced teaching methodologies. Thus, there is a clear shift in the objectives of this institution from the conventional classroom teaching to skill oriented JKC training programme.
As a support service, JKC is not only imparting training but also conducing recruitment drives and mega job melas by inviting and involving MNC’s and other agencies. Every year about 50 -100 students are receiving placements through campus recruitment drives.
Therefore, all the students are advised to join JKC and derive the benefits for a better career and a bright future.
Special Training Programme (STP)
This innovative training programme was started during 2009 – 2010 as a new initiative given by the Commissioner of Collegiate Education to all the Degree Colleges having JKC’s. It is an extension of JKC activity in the form of giving coaching to final year students on the various competitive examinations conducted by Banks, Service Commissions, Insurance Sector and Defence Recruitment etc.,for which they are eligible. Classes are conducted regularly and outside the time-table hours on General English, General Studies, Reasoning ability and Numerical ability. Experienced teachers of the college as well as experts from outside are taking classes. Thus, by broadening the base of JKC the employment opportunities for the students are strengthened. All the students, especially the final years are advised to join STP and make use of the training.
