SKILLING PROGRAM CALENDAR
Skill development as a process is designed by ABC Next as a three-pronged approach:
a) Short Term Strategy: Here it is proposed that graduates unemployed for about 2-3 years are thoroughly trained in communication/soft skills while continuously reviewing and upgrading their existing domain knowledge.
b) Medium Term Strategy: Here, training is an ongoing process throughout the tenure of the students’ college education; to ensure that it is not only aligned to the course curriculum of a student, but also that it augments the College syllabus by imparting smart/soft skills to ensure industry-readiness by graduation time.
c) Long Term Strategy: This long term strategy involves the introduction of communication and soft skills at the high school level, along with proper guidance/counseling to students for the identification of areas of interest and consequent career options.
