KERALA SIDCO TRAINING DIVISION
India as a nation is faced with massive problem of unemployment. On the other hand the industrialists are complaining that they are not getting competitive work force. The growing problem of unemployment among the youth as well as the demand of the industrialists requires a recasting of the existing training programmes.
We are striving hard to convert our huge human resources into productive man power. We have thousands of Micro Small Medium Enterprises. Flow of Multi-national Companies are increasing in India day by day to fix their units. Traditional production or service methodologies are replacing with the emerging trends. We have hundreds of Engineering Colleges, Polytechnics and other Technical Vocational Skill Development Centres. We have set up a National Skill Development Mission and also set up many Skill Development Centres throughout the nation. Government of Kerala has also constituted a Vocational Skill Acquisition Programme to train the students of the Arts and Science Colleges. Yet we are lagging far behind in the development of skilled man power compare with the demand in the emerging industries. This is a serious threat in our developmental activities and to the march towards ‘India a Developed Nation’.
India needs multi-million trained work force to cope up with the emerging market demands. Career and Technical Education prepares learners for careers directly related to a specific trade or occupation in which the learner participates. The career courses should be demand and need-based, keeping in mind the constantly changing requirements of technologies/industries.
Modern labour market becomes more specialized and economies are demanding more skills, businesses are increasingly depending in new generation career training institutes. The syllabi of career subjects should be updated on a regular basis to keep pace with changes in technology.
Keeping in mind, the necessity of imparting modern training methodologies in various sectors of the industry and commerce KERALA SIDCO proposes to strengthen its Training Division in extending need based training programmes to the community by constituting its own Training Centres as well as through Non Governmental and other Organizations.
These Career Institutes are expected to extend training from entry-level positions to professional levels. They are expected to handle active teaching strategies, learner-cantered instruction, constructivist theories, and project-based approaches to teaching more holistic instruction and a curriculum that is more meaningful in applicability.
KERALA SIDCO Career Institutes train students for a variety of skilled jobs, including Tool & Die, automotive technician, IT, home science, interior designer, electronics technician, hospitality, office management, Beautician, Live Stock Instructor, Agriculturist, etc. We shall also help students to identify prospective employers and apply for jobs.
