In addition to the traditional training modules, skill studies are being promoted among the ITI students to provide them a better exposure.Experts and State government officials deliberated on the strategies to improve skills and entrepreneurship at a conclave of ITI principals held at the Bhartiya Skill Development University (BSDU), which practises Swiss dual system of education by blending real time industry exposure with world-class machinery in its curriculum, here earlier this week.Academic and industrial experts laid emphasis on equipping the youth with the necessary skills and education to help create an “employment-ready workforce” for industry in the future. “While studying for a graduation degree, the training in different skills will open up new possibilities for career growth,” BSDU president Surjit Singh Pabla said.The participants in the conclave, including 300 ITI principals from across the State, threw light on the scope for giving academic facilities and practical exposure to the ITI students. The trainees, who will be given pre-admission in BSDU during their study in ITIs, will learn new traits from Swiss trainers through a curriculum designed by industry experts.‘Expand curriculum’Rajasthan Skill and Livelihoods Development Corporation’s Managing Director Samit Sharma said the ITIs should expand their curriculum and make productive use of facilities offered by other institutions. State Skill, Employment & Entrepreneurship Secretary Naveen Jain said modernisation would improve infrastructure of ITIs and motivate the students to keep innovating and think of new ideas.The Swiss dual system was highlighted at the conclave as a unique concept with the focus on customised practical industrial training along with theoretical knowledge.last_img

Just when Johan Botha was charging away at his balls scoring a four and six off his bowling in the 48th over, a short fell short of the boundary and Suresh Raina came under it and soon Botha was walking back on 23.

It seemed as if they were just waiting for Sachin Tendulkar to complete his ton before tightening the noose. For when the Master Blaster was at the crease it seemed that India would go on to post a 320-plus figure, but post his dismissal India’s fortunes took a U-turn.After Styen scalped Gambhir and Pathan.

first_imgSantos midfielder Lucas Lima is unhappy with reports of an agreement with Barcelona.Lima put a pitchside reporter straight about the rumours doing the rounds that he is close to joining Barcelona. “A few members of my family read that report but there was no byline – we don’t know who wrote that piece and that’s a big problem. You, the media, can say whatever you like. “Why don’t you go straight to the player and ask what is happening? I am under contract with Santos. When did I say I am leaving? Think about it intelligently – if I had signed for Barça, would I go around telling everyone? No, of course I wouldn’t. “Do you really think I am so stupid to say that I have signed for Barcelona in a place where the press could take photographs of me? You can think whatever you want but I am under contract at Santos.”last_img
