Jamshedpur, Feb 15: City-based constituent colleges of Kolhan varsity are all set to start classes under National University Students Skill Development Programme from next week.
Graduate School College for Women, which will begin classes from Monday, has already selected students and faculty members. Guest faculty from diverse fields will train the students.
“This course, which students can do alongside regular graduation studies, will prepare them to clinch jobs. We will begin classes on February 17. We have already prepared the schedule and classes will be from 3:30pm to 5:30pm on weekdays,” said Shukla.
While most institutions are prepared to launch the course, Jamshedpur Co-operative College is still waiting for students to enrol. While the programme needs a minimum of 100 students, the college has found only 55 takers.
“We think our college needs another orientation programme,” said Suneet Kumar, a faculty member of the institution and the co-ordinator for National Service Scheme of Kolhan University. The three-year programme is a pilot project undertaken by TISS and supported by Union ministry of youth affairs and sports.
