Hyderabad , Nov. 25

THE Director of Intermediate Education, Dr Atchamamba, has inaugurated the Child and Police (CAP) - Teen Channel Institute of Vocational Education under the aegis of the State Institute of Vocational Education (SIVE), Board of Intermediate Education.

In a press release here, CAP said the institute would train youth from the under-privileged sections of the society in vocational and life skills and overall personality development.

According to Dr Atchamamba, SIVE is currently focussing on six branches of vocational education that include agriculture, business and commerce, engineering and technology, paramedical studies, home sciences and humanities. The Institute has devised 45 vocational courses in the +2 stream and 57 short-term courses for SSC or Pre-SSC candidates.

Dr Nalini Gangadharan, Executive Director of Dr Reddy's Foundation, a partner in the CAP project, said the Teen Channel Vocational Institute would offer short-term courses in vocational education and the courses are recognised and certified by SIVE. The short-term courses are for three months, six months and one year.

"The intention is to reach out to more and more children by taking it to the grass root level so that the children in remote locations also get trained in vocational education and make themselves self-employable," Dr Gangadharan said.
