Skill Development Program
IDEA skill development courses are running efficiently. The program includes courses from tailoring to beautician courses and from home chef to computer training. The course duration varies from 3 to 6 months. Along with these courses, all the participants have imparted life skill classes and ‘spoken English classes’ as per their requirement.
This year our course on cooking and catering, called ‘Home Chef’ is one year old and has gained considerable popularity.
On successful completion of the course IDEA guides and supports the students for getting a job or for self- employment. Though in the beginning, the participants are apprehensive about their abilities to be able to perform well upon the course completion they perform extraordinarily well.
- The objective is to provide vocational training and life skills to women and youth through these employability enhancement programs.
- The focus is to empower the attendees to have a differentiated skill set, which becomes a value add for the individual.
