AICTE Online Course to boost students’ Professional Skills – The All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE) has announced the launch of an online course to impart different professional skills among its students. This step will also help to boost employment among those who are eligible.
Off recent, AICTE has been taking several steps to impart social and communication skills among its students. The technical education body has decided to partner with TCS iON in order to launch basic professional skills courses which would help the students to enhance their employment opportunity.
AICTE Chairman Prof Anil Sahasrabuddhe stated that it had been found out that engineering students among its approved technical institutes lack basic professional soft skills. Due to this, they missed many employment opportunities. These students would be taught basic professional etiquette such as a formal email, how to engage in professional telephonic conversation and steps to prepare for an interview. These lessons would prepare students for interview while appearing for the job opportunities.
The newly launched course is of 20 hour duration and it consists of approximately 11 modules which are related to various professional competencies.
