The scheme of establishing a Career and Counseling Cell in Colleges has been formulated to address the diverse socio-economic challenges and Geographic backgrounds of the heterogeneous population of students coming to the Colleges vis-√†-vis equity of access and placement opportunities through availability of appropriate institutional support information. Linguistic differences and cultural gaps among students also call for the setting up of placement cells. Availability of relevant and accessible information coupled with professional guidance to utilize the same can result in better career achievements outside the classrooms and help in the healthy progression of students.
Career and Counseling Cell would help the students with appropriate guidance to establish linkages with the world of work and locate career opportunities vis-√†-vis the realities and job profiles in the context of highly competitive emerging occupational patterns. The gap in perception about the market demands and individual expectations could be bridged through psychological and confidence building measures.
Remedial Coaching for SC/ST/OBC (non-creamy layer) & Minorities:
Education is meant not only to nurture the excellence already in a gifted person but also to uplift the not-so-gifted, so that he/she is equipped to safeguard his/her interests in independent democratic India. The Constitution of India recognizes the SC s and STs as the two most backward groups needing special protection. Further, democracy demands the necessity to protect and foster the interests and needs of the minority groups.
In order to enable students belonging to SC/ST/OBC (non-creamy layer)/Minority communities, who need remedial coaching to come up to the level necessary for pursuing higher studies efficiently and to reduce their failure and drop-out rate, the UGC will provide financial assistance for conducting special classes outside the regular timetable during the Eleventh Plan. Students belonging to Other Backward Classes and general candidates may also be allowed the benefit of such coaching classes. A nominal fee (not exceeding the monthly tuition fee) may be charged from the general candidates. However, physically challenged students and students who are General candidates coming from families with income below the poverty line (as guided by the state/UT/Central Government) will be exempted from paying fee.
Remedial Coaching is to be organized at Undergraduate/Postgraduate level with a view to
- Improving academic skills and linguistic proficiency of the students in various subjects.
- Raising their level of comprehension of basic subjects to provide a stronger foundation for further academic work.
- Strengthening their knowledge, skills and attitudes in such subjects, where quantitative and qualitative techniques and laboratory activities are involved so that proper guidance and training provided under the programmed may enable the students to come up to the level necessary for pursuing higher studies efficiently.
