Soft Skill

Soft skills refer to a cluster of personal qualities, habits, attitudes that have the potential to make someone a good student and compatible with the requirements of academia. Put simply, they are the ways in which you talk, you move around, listen and present yourself. They are learned behaviors, which develop as a result of ones willingness and commitment to understanding the emotions of oneself and others. Soft skills are increasingly becoming the hard skills of today's work force. It's just not enough to be highly trained in technical skills, without developing the softer, interpersonal and relationship-building skills that help people to communicate and collaborate effectively. Nowadays, employers want more from employees, particularly those that qualify as graduates who possess a good amount of 'soft skills'. Soft skills are important for fine tuning the student's attitude to learning, motives, values and deal with different situations responsibly and diligently. First and foremost is to train the students to speak fluently in English. For this, the Department of English of our institution conducts a certificate course on "Communicative and Functional English" to the students.
On 30th Day of September 2016, our institution signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Redington Employability Academy for Development (READ) a Unit of Redington Corporate Social Responsibility, Chennai. The READ Centre is developed in our campus and is functioning in the MCA block. This year nearly 200 best out-going students (III UG, II PG, & III MCA) have been selected and training on Employability Skills have been imparted to the students. The Course was conducted in 90 hr duration to the students in batches from 10.10.2016 to 28.02.2017. Expert training faculties of READ handled the sessions. Most of the students trained in the READ programme have got their placements through campus recruitment organized by the Placement and Training Cell of our College. 95 students received placement orders. These students totally achieved 179 placement opportunities.
