-- Laurus Edutech, a premier skill development institution has bagged the opportunity to train students from 29 colleges under the Vikasana scheme/program undertaken by Government of Karnataka in partnership with Directorate of College Education.
Aimed at instilling employability-
related skills and life skills in the students, the program took a flight in the month of January 2012 for the holistic development of the students.
“The program targets second year under-graduate students since they are on the threshold of entering the professional world and it becomes a dire need/ an imperative step to prepare students according to the industry standards. Knowledge imparted via books during their college days is not enough to teach students about how to perform well and add value to the organization they will be joining,” said Karthick Murali, Head of Programs at Laurus Edutech.
Training in stress-management will be another noteworthy aspect of Vikasana. Stress in the workplace reduces productivity, increases management pressures, and makes people ill in many ways, evidence of which is still increasing Keeping in mind these scientifically-
proven facts, students will be taught to manage stress and work efficiently to maximize productivity.
“Well-being at work-place is a very significant concept both for an individual and the organization. An ability to deal with stressful situations arms the student to tap any opportunity with confidence in the dynamically changing market scenario. It is extremely important the along with strong knowledge and skills, the person copes well with mental strain which builds up at the workplace. We hope to equip students with these quintessential stress management skills under the Vikasana program.” said Mr. Srinivas Rao Cheedella, Managing Director at Laurus Edutech.
With an aim to train a total of 3000 students from 29 colleges, Laurus has already trained 2358 in 26 colleges. The students do not have to spend anything for the program as it is funded by DCE and Government of Karnataka with an assured guarantee of placement.
