Student Support Activities

Career Guidance Cell : (In-Charge Sachin Bhandarkar )

The cell holds weekly session on Career Guidance to help students choose the career that suits them most.

Career Guidance Cell has been involved in guiding the students for their careers since the year 1998.

The existence of CGC can be justified on the following grounds: –

  • Some of the students are not well informed of the various career alternatives and scope of higher studies in their respective streams. So the CGC is resourceful in orienting these students on various career avenues.
  • Many of the students also have special traits where certain specific careers could be suitable for them. Interactions with students both in the class and informally at various platforms by CGC can help it to identify their positive traits and make students realize these.
  • Quite a few students are unsure of the kind of skills that are required to successfully achieve the career of their choice. Development of appropriate skills and career planning is of vital importance to any successful career. The Cell is able to suggest soft skill training to students and at times even fetch resource people to the campus for small orientations and workshops.

Some of the programs initiated by CGC were like ‘Orientation Meeting for various competitive examinations, then organized sessions on ‘Importance of Preparing Files for Career Progress’, techniques for ‘Learning and Retention of Memory’, methods in ‘Enriching One’s Vocabulary’ etc. We are very glad that through the Principal we have been facilitated a small share cabin on the third floor alongwith a locker for our activities. Some of our achievements:

  • Over 600 students counseled over the entire year.
  • Starting of the ENTREPRENEURSHIP CELL with an enrolment of 3 students.
  • Conduct of Mock Tests, Interviews and Group Discussions by the Cell from time to time.
  • Having a good response for the Personal Portfolio Management by the students.
  • A group of dedicated students preparing for Civil Services Examination.
  • Personal Counseling Cell :

    The Counseling Cell caters to the emotional and psychological problems of students.It has been started so that students can excel and actualize their potential and learn to deal with their psychological blocks and problems effectively.

    To meet this end the Counseling Cell offers both one to one personal counseling as well as group developmental sessions.

    Presently it operates 2-3 times a week on appointment. .
