Skill Development Programs
Skill Development Program (SDP)
SDP, a training program of Vidya Poshak has been initiated to cater to the soft skills training requirements of the educational community.
The Need: It is known fact that soft skills and the language abilities enhance the performance and employability of the student. Though the need of soft skills development has been widely appreciated by the educational institutes, lack of quality and cost effective training modules, and non-availability of resource persons has remained a concern. To cater to this need Vidya Poshak launched Skill Development Programs during 2008.
What is SDP : SDP is a sustainable as well as non profit training cell of Vidya Poshak. This is developed to cater for the institutions and organizations which can afford to bear the training costs. The objective is to mobilize funds for the social module as well as for self sustenance.
SDP conducts workshops for teachers, students, parents and employees. The workshops would be conducted on invitation from various institutes at their own location. Training cost depends on number of days and the module of training. The organization also has to bear the travel and accommodation expenses of the trainers.
Since its introduction, more than a lakh of students, 4,663 teachers, 5728 employees, from more than 300 institutions apart from hundreds of parents have been trained. SDP aims at providing quality training at affordable cost to the rural colleges. Some of the modules covered are Personality development and Motivation, Communication and Presentation skills, Emotion management, Creativity, Employability Skills (Interview Skills), Analytical skills, English Speaking skills, Career guidance, etc. For teachers, modules such as Ethics in teaching, Creative teaching techniques, Teachers as Leaders, Classroom Management are delivered apart from the modules mentioned above. Those already employed can be trained in modules such as corporate etiquettes, how to do well in job, etc apart from other modules. For high school students value and career guidance is offered additionally.
Training Modules: The centre provides training on different topics. Following are few of the training topics: Life Skills/Personality Development, Emotion Management, Entrepreneurial development, Art of Parenting, Career Guidance, Team Building, Leadership, Functional English, Study Skills, Counselling Techniques, Class Room Management for Teachers etc.
We have recently conducted Career Counselling sessions for 10th grade students from rural High Schools. These sessions identify the abilities and interests of the students to find their potential. More than 160 careers are mapped to 5 “Potential” like Linguistic, Spatial, and Arithmetic/Logical, People skills and Physical / Mechanical. On need basis other training modules also are being prepared and delivered.
