Excellent opportunity to college students!
Prof.V.G.Krishnamurthy is always concerned for students and he believes that ACHIEVEMORE mission is only possible by helping students have ACHIEVEMORE Culture and through student involvement. ACHIEVMORE programs mostly focus on students and expects students to be ACHIEVEMORE Volunteers and the Ambassadors of ACHIEVEMORE. ACHIEVEMORE strongly believes that only proper training can help success lovers - students & youth to succeed in life.
ACHIEVEMORE offers 3 opportunities:
1. Training. 2. Work experience. 3. Scholarship
ACHIEVEMORE wants every student to avail all these 3 opportunities to improve their employability, before completing the degree. Leadership & Managerial training with some part time work can help students get appreciable success skills. Students can learn through projects and in every project, students will have high flexibility and more freedom. Projects are designed in such a way that, studies will not be affected. Also students will be trained to balance studies and projects.
1. ACHIEVEMORE Training
Students need adequate training to get Leadership & Managerial skills, before graduation. But it is not the case now with majority of students. Therefore only employers are regularly saying that students lack employability. But necessary efforts were not been taken so far, either by corporate companies or by colleges or by parents or by any training agency. Students, parents and colleges need to give importance to managerial training, apart from studies.
Of course, there are some training opportunities available, but they are more expensive and also timings are not suitable to students and hence very few students avail such training. Moreover, available trainings are more of general nature and not customized to individual needs of students. Also, they are more focusing knowledge and to little extent attitude development. Further, adequate opportunity to practice leadership & managerial skills is not given priority. Hence these general training does not give expected results.
ACHIEVEMORE wants to bridge this training gap and geared up to offer an effective training to students. Apart from Leadership & Managerial skills, specific training needs expressed by students and as well limitations of students assessed by questionnaires will also be added in the training agenda. It is a customized training to help students learn, whatever eachone wants. Training design with proper needs assessment is the specialty of the training.
Cost of this kind of training can be easily Rs.3,000/- per year. But efforts are being taken to offer it for only a token fee - Just Rs.500/-. Also, this type of training is not available to students, elsewhere. In turn ACHIEVEMORE wants students to do little service and extend the training benefits to some more students & success lovers.
ACHIEVEMORE wants to offer 3 years training to every student. To start with, one year training is offered from June, 2014 and subsequently another 2 years training will be made available subsequently. Students need to pay only for the first one year training and the other 2 years training will be offered free of cost. Students will be given Training certificate, which can add value to their resume. It is an excellent opportunity for every student.
2. Work Experience
Indian students need some work experience during their studies. It can help them understand their own realities and expectations of employers. Due to technology and internet, study methods have improved a lot and students are smarter now a day and can very well find some time to do a part time work, apart from studies.
Students are allowed to work for 20 hours per week in abroad and this is working nicely with many countries. Since it is a new concept to India - students, parents and colleges are not fully prepared yet. Hence students can be made to work for only 5 hours per week to start with.
Students need not do any serious work, but they need to learn as how to do any work. This basic training can prepare students to handle any work effectively, later. Work experience certificate will be given to students, which can add value to their resume and give an edge to them in the job market.
Students must earn some money during their education and thereby understand the value of money. In developed countries, students above 12 years are allowed to work and earn the money needed for their living and as well for education. But in India students do not have opportunities to earn at least some money during their studies. There is a strong myth exists that students should concentrate only on education and should not divert their attention on earning.
Comparing course fee / educational expenses, the earning through part time work can only be very small. Therefore the earning can be regarded as only scholarship. Training is the primary objective of ACHIEVEMORE and scholarship can be the priority of students. However, ACHIEVEMORE can help every student with possible part time work and strategies to achieve the scholarship goal.
Offer only to limited colleges
ACHIEVEMORE wants to serve more students and wants to involve students in social work, which can help students to grow as social minded leaders in the society. Though Prof.VGK wants reach every student in India, he is offering this opportunity to only limited students in the beginning. Interested colleges, parents & students can contact Prof.VGK.
