DEPUTY CHIEF MINISTER EXHORTS STUDENTS OF WORLD CLASS SKILL CENTRE (WCSC) TO BE BRAND AMBASSADORS OF SKILL EDUCATION
The Deputy Chief Minister, Govt. of NCT of Delhi, Shri Manish Sisodia today exhorted the Students of World Class Skill Centre (WCSC), Vivek Vihar to be the brand Ambassadors of skill courses. Shri Sisodia was speaking while addressing the new batch of students of World Class Skill Centre (WCSC), Vivek Vihar in a function organized at Kamani Auditorium, Mandi House in Delhi today. Speaker Delhi Assembly, Shri Ram Niwas Goel was the guest of honour on this occasion.
Shri Sisodia said that World Class Skill Centre (WCSC) is a unique Institute which imparts practical skill courses in reality and not just the concepts. Over 3000 students have passed out from WCSC, Vivek Vihar in the past 5 years and have been successfully placed for employment.
Citing examples from other developed countries, he made a special note of Senai courses in Brazil, dual vet in Germany, professional courses in Finland, Tafe in Australia where skill courses are considered to be a very dignified course, unlike the importance we give for the graduation courses here. A misconception prevails in our mindset, skill means carpenters or electricians, and this needs to be changed.
Shri Sisodia said that the ITI Vivek Vihar was chosen as a temporary campus for starting the World Class Skill Centre. Presently the centre is running with four courses in Hospitality Operations, Retail Services, Finance Executive, and Digital Marketing & Web Development, with the world class facilities for the trainees. Fully air conditioned classrooms, state-of-the-art infrastructure for imparting world class training – Projectors, latest i-7 computers, separate subject wise labs equipped with all requisite gadgets, trained and industry experience faculty guided by the vision to help students achieve their best makes the institute truly world class. Admissions are offered twice in a year, once in the month of March and another in the month of August for a total capacity of 1000 students per annum.
Assembly Speaker, Shri Ram Niwas Goel expressed his satisfaction and happiness over students coming to WCSC all over from Faridabad, Sonipat, Ghaziabad and other far flung areas.
Secretary, Technical Education, Shri Devinder Singh Nijjer stated that another 25 WCSCs in various other need based disciplines are to be set up across Delhi. Efforts are on to start at least three before December 2018. In this connection, an Australian delegation met Dy CM and has showed their willingness to collaborate. The focus is on employability.
