Our Approach in a Nutshell

At SVRCC, the methodologies followed at every level of the organization may be characterized as professional and meticulous. We impart the positive philosophy of healthy, joyful and purposeful living to our students and both the practical and theoretical aspect of learning receive equal stress. The one year period of training is broken into 9 months of in-house learning and 3 months of internship training with our industrial partners.

The spirit of sportsmanship in our students is cultivated with indoor and outdoor games that require both individual talent and team-spirit and leadership qualities. Extra-curricular activities bring such latent talents as singing, dancing, play-acting and performing to the fore.

Community service plays a pivotal role in the learning process in that it demands and cultivates civic sense and desire to give back to the society in our students. Bringing smiles to people living in old age homes and cleansing public places are some of the typical activities of the students of  SVRCC.

We encourage and engage the parents in productive dialogue with the institutions which help in understanding their children much better and promote peace at home-front. This is one of the uniquely humane aspects of the college.

Local industry, commerce, and employer organizations are actively involved in initiatives at SVRCC. This allows us to:

  • Develop appropriate course curricula and materials
  • Periodically review training modules and include relevant skill-sets
  • Access better faculties and delivery of courses
  • Provide internships and hands-on-experience to the students
  • Place students after completion of training.

It is a motto of SVRCC that “if you are not distinct, you will be extinct”. We are constantly reaching out to local industry, parents, the community, and other community colleges in order to keep our education fresh and always add value.

A Curriculum for Holistic Education

The contents of our education program are unique:

  • Love and Care
  • Mental &Physical Health and Talent-Spotting
  • Life-Coping Skills
  • Work Skills
  • Hands-On Experience
  • Community Service and Inclusivity

Love and Care

Acceptance is the beginning of change. But our efforts go beyond that.  Acceptance is the seed of change. We, first of all, accept the students for who they are, where they come from, what their flaws are, what they have suffered. And we show them by action that we care for them and that they are very much worthy of love. This brings about almost a magical reversal of attitude in our students, from cynical to cheerful. We have seen students transform from diffident and truculent to confident, result-oriented and positive individuals who love life and experience the excitement of achievement.

Mental and Physical Health and Talent Spotting

  • As Swami Vivekananda has repeatedly stressed, developing a healthy body and a healthy mind are fundamental to development. Therefore, yoga and meditation is compulsory for all students at SVRCC.
  • In addition to yoga, outdoor sports and games are a key aspect of education at SVRCC.

Life Coping Skills

  • Life Coping Skills: We target developing a student’s character and personality by teaching coping mechanisms such as time management, handling anger and negativity, teamwork, group dynamics, and leadership skills.
  • Interpersonal Skills: These enable students to express their ideas and opinions, and talk about themselves confidently in public or in front of an interview board, or in a group discussion.
  • Computing Skills: We introduce students to basic computer operations and develop their primary computing skills.
  • Developmental English: English language skills hugely benefit our students in any field of study. We aim to advance the level of English using their current skills as a base from which to build.

Work Skills

  • Work Skills: Skill-based programs are technical/trade skill-related, as determined by the particular needs of employers. The curriculum combines the conceptual (60%) and the practical (40%).

Hands-On Experience

  • Internships: Internships put the skills learned in a classroom to the test in a practical application that makes education relatable.
  • Employment Preparation: Training on how to prepare resumes, face interviews, get a good job and keep it.
  • Duration: Depending on the learning level of target groups in the local areas, classes would range from three hours for part-timers to six hours per day for full timers.

Community Service and Inclusivity

  • An important facet of education at SVRCC is active community service. Service activities include visiting orphanages, old age homes and other such public service outfits, creating awareness for social issues, and pro-environment activities.
  • Inclusivity is achieved by involving the parents of students. As part of a student’s growth, we cultivate a positive relationship with parents to ensure a wholesome life.

The Focus on Job Skills

Job-oriented programs in various fields of specialization have been designed in collaboration and consultation with associated organizations and industries.  All job-oriented programs are constructed based on:

  • The exact job title: Financial Assistant, Community Development Organizer, General Duty (Nursing) Assistant, Office Assistant, etc.
  • The job description, or responsibilities and tasks of the employee
  • The skills required to fulfill these responsibilities

IMPORTANT:

  • Life Skills courses are mandatory for all students, regardless of their specialization.
  • The class strength in each job-oriented program is 25-30 students.
  • We have a  has a job placement cell and a placement officer to ensure effective internship training and job placement for every qualifying graduate.
  • Job placement is one hundred percent.

Final Evaluation and Assessment of Students

Skill assessment for diploma qualification and certification will be based on the following criteria:

  • Assessments are completely internal and done by SVRCC with the help of technical and field experts.
  • Evaluations measure skill levels rather than absorption of information.
  • Life skill instructors, work skill instructors, and industrial industrial supervisors collaboratively conduct evaluations. Evaluations are supplemented by a self-assessment by the student.
  • Student’s conceptual knowledge is evaluated by continuous, transparent testing and contains checks and balances to ensure credibility.
  • A committee consisting of the Director, Program Coordinator, Placement Officer and the Industrial & Placement Partner declare students eligible for employment after assessment.
