b.Vision and Thrust areas of the Community College:

Education plays an important role in the holistic development of human beings as well as the nation. There is a worldwide shift from conventional educational system to competence based qualification system. India, at present, is recognized as one of the youngest nation in the world with over 50 per cent of the population under the age of 30 years. In order to harness the full demographic dividend, India needs an educational system which is of high quality, affordable, flexible and relevant to the individuals, economy and to the society as a whole. With a view to make the skills acquired by the learner’s acceptable nationality, the curricula and system of certification should align with the National Occupational Standards. In order to facilitate offering of nationality standardized skill related programmes, the Government of India has notified the National Skills Qualifications Framework (NSQF) on 27th December 2013. It permits individuals to accumulate their knowledge and skills and convert them, through testing and certification by the competent authorities, into higher level of certification which could be a certificate, diploma, advanced diploma, a degree or a PG diploma in common parlance.

In this background, the Community College was set up to serve multiple needs including:
  • Career oriented education and skills to students interested in directly entering the workforce
  • Training and education programmes for local employer
  • High touch remedial education for secondary school students not ready to enroll in traditional colleges, giving them a path to transfer to three or four year institutions and
  • General interest courses to the community for personal development and interest.
Unique feature of the Community College:
  1. To make higher education relevant the learner and the community
  2. To integrate relevant skills into the higher education system
  3. To provide skills based education to students currently perusing higher education but actually interested in entering the workforce at the earliest opportunity
  4. To provide employable and certificate skills based on National Occupational Standards (NOSs) with necessary general education to senior secondary school pass outs, with general education and/or vocational education background
  5. To provide for up-gradation and certification of traditional / acquired skills of the learners irrespective of their age
  6. To provide opportunities for community-based life-long learning by offering courses of general interest to the community for personal development and interest
  7. To provide opportunity for vertical mobility to move to higher education in future
  8. To offer bridge courses to certificate holders of general/ vocational education, so as to bring them at par with appropriate NSQF level
