They named it Jesuitec, since then, imparting skills in youth through training programs in one of the key agendas of our organization. Courses run are industry
- Equipping the unskilled youth with employable skills and knowledge in order to reap the demographic dividend and contribute substantively to the growth of the country and thereby to nation building.
- To bridge the gap between required workforce and lack of skilled workforce by skilling, re-skilling and up-skilling especially those from the underprivileged sections of the society.
- Offering holistic and skill-based education in order to help our under-privileged youth not only employable but also empowered and transformed to become agents of transformation.
- Skill training along with youth accompaniment through personal guidance, career counselling, personality development programs, promotion of dignified livelihood and becoming of agents of social change.
- Networking of all our skill centres to offer a standardized skill training program, creating a model skill training institution as well as setting a new bench mark across the country for skill training.
From our inception, we have been following a model which is robust, adaptable and output oriented. With time changes have been made and now we have a sophisticated and industry trend oriented model.
First phase of this cycle Skill cycle starts with identifying the industry needs and their requirements. Once it is done community is mobilized and engaged and youth is motivated to come forward, it is followed by counselling the youth and understanding their course preference.
Second phase of the cycle begins with training of trainers, so that they impart the best of the trainings. After that actual training of the youth takes place, this involves theoretical as well as practical training. Training ends by the assessment done by the institute and givning them the certification.Third and final stage of the cycle starts with placing the youths at the right place.And building new networks in the companies through alumni.
