Chandigarh, Dec 12 (UNI) Informal skill development programmes for school drop-outs will start in all government polytechnics in Haryana from January next.
Technical Education Minister A C Chaudhry said vocational training to as many as 50,000 persons would be imparted in the informal sector during the 11th plan period under the community college or community development scheme.
The courses would be offered as per the requirements of the present day industry. Fundamental courses for development of personality and communication skill would be the integral part of each and every course.
The courses would be clustered in such a way so as to enable the students to have the opportunity for upward mobility and after achieving certain credit points, they would be considered as eligible to take up the option of lateral entry in conventional diploma courses.
He said a proper campaign for the awareness of community polytechnic courses among masses would be initiated.
