Life Skill Learning & Vocational Guidance
Charting out a map for life
We are deeply conscious that our obligation to the students does not end with teaching the curriculum but that we must prepare them for life.
Whether it be higher academic education at a college or university in India or overseas, a career in a profession, in the services, business and industry, in sports, media, performing and fine arts. We recognize that for our children to grow and progress, we as a school have to lay the foundations of life skills: to develop self-esteem, to learn effective inter-personal skills like negotiation, conflict resolution and also learn to manage and contain stress.
Self assessment is encouraged from an early stage and the Discovery Learning project is programmed to arrive at the choices they wish to make in life.
Aptitude tests are conducted at regular intervals. Our teachers and in-house counselors work in close coordination with both students and parents.
Career advice is given through the annual Career Melas held in September each year, where talks are arranged with senior professionals from trade and industry, as also professional career advisors. The talks are aimed at increasing awareness of specific careers and qualities and educational inputs needed for them. Attempts are also being made to coach students in appearing for interviews, giving presentations, writing CVs and covering letters.
We send students of class XI and XII on Internship Programmes during the summer vocations to multinational companies, NGOs, national dailies, banks, law firms, retail outlets. They acquire first hand work experience which we feel will help them develop into competent and contributing citizens.
