Government College in Thuvakkudi derives Maximum Benefit from Add-on Course
The Government Arts College, Thuvakkudi, ranks top among the 62 government colleges in deriving the maximum benefit from the concept of add-on course in polytechnics propagated by the State for fostering employability through technical training.
It is a matter of pride to the college, the Director of Collegiate Education S. Jeyabaskaran Charles said, inaugurating the Students’ Association at the college on Tuesday.
The stature of the polytechnic : Seshasayee Institute of Technology, clubbed with the college for implementation of the concept was a major reason for the patronage, he observed.
About 200 students are availing themselves of the benefit of undergoing job-oriented courses at the SIT and earn credits under the Choice-Based Credit System.
Make yourself employable by developing language and communication skills and proficiency in using computers, Prof. Jeyabaskaran said in his address to the students.
He urged them to learn by shedding inhibitions and encouraged them to converse in English without worrying about committing mistakes.
He emphasised that the confidence to converse would arise only by improving vocabulary through voracious reading.
Likewise, develop your computer skills to become employable, he advised the students. Employability was a factor to reckon with. Jobs were available in plenty, he said, and suggested conduct of Mock Parliament and Mock Assembly in colleges to infuse a sense of responsibility among students.
Presiding over, the Principal In-Charge J. Manjula pleaded for government sanction for start of more UG and PG programs.
Dr.Manjula and heads of departments invited the attention of Prof. Jeyabaskaran to the shortcomings on the fronts of manpower and infrastructure, and requested him to prevail upon the Government for fulfilment of the requirements at the earliest.
