APEEJAY GETS RS. 5 CRORE GRANT FOR KAUSHAL KENDRA (UGC)

Jalandhar 11 August (Jaswinder Azad)- Apeejay College of Fine Arts which was established with the motto “Soaring High is our Nature” moved one step further in this direction when it achieved an exuberant grant of Rs. 5 Crore from University Grant Commission (UGC) to set up Deen Dayal Upadhyay Kaushal Kendra in the campus. With this grant, the College is going to begin new Vocational Courses which are mainly directed to promote employment skills amongst the students. The courses are:
M.Voc Theatre & Television Production
B.Voc Data Science
B.Voc Health Care Management
B.Voc Beauty and Wellness
B.Voc Product Design Management & Entrepreneurship.
The motive of the college has always been to implant practical knowledge in students which they can use in their life to empower themselves to make themselves financially independent and not only to overload them with the theoretical one and these new age courses are undoubtedly aimed towards this purpose only.
Expressing her ecstasy on this jubilant occasion Principal Dr. Sucharita Sharma boasted about the already established courses which the college is running. She said that these new age courses like B.Voc. (Theatre and Stage Craft), B.Voc. (Sound Technology), B.Voc (Contemporary forms of Dance) and B.Voc (E-Commerce and Digital Marketing are becoming the source of attraction amongst the students. Now a days, students not only go for the traditional courses running since ages but with the advancement in times and the new professions being introduced, they are opting for such Vocational Courses and consequently establishing themselves well in their careers. Further she added that all these courses are under National Skill Qualification Framework (NSQF) that promotes the skill based education which will help the students to enhance their practical skills and they will move towards the path of well established employment opportunities.
Principal Dr. Sucharita congratulated UGC Committee Members Dr. Kewal Krishan, Dr. Monica Arora, Ms. Rekha and Ms. Garima Arora for their tireless efforts and she added that in future too we will keep working to move ahead according to the new age and its requirements.
