14. ABSTRACT <ul><li>Finishing school is a pre employment training program for graduating students from Engineering/Polytechnic colleges offering different specializations to cater to the needs of different industries to make up for deficiencies of the technical skills in various streams as computer , networking, telecommunication , IT & also in soft skills. </li></ul>
15. PURPOSE Of FINISHING SCHOOLS
16. <ul><li>Enhance the standard of fresh engineering graduates to become acceptable to the industry. </li></ul><ul><li>Bridge the gap between industry and educational institutions </li></ul><ul><li>Meet the needs of unemployed and non-employable engineering graduates and to improve their communication & I.T. skills. </li></ul><ul><li>Reinforce the students skills & acquire industry–specific knowledge from trained faculty & experts from industries </li></ul>
17. Industrial Requirements <ul><li>Practical Knowledge. </li></ul><ul><li>Attitude of continuous learning. </li></ul><ul><li>First hand feel of industrial environment. </li></ul><ul><li>Soft skills, analytical skills & team work. </li></ul>
18. Role Of Finishing Schools Begin
19. Why are these schools suddenly springing up? <ul><li>India produces nearly 4 lakh engineers a year. NASSCOM found only one in four engineering graduates to be employable. </li></ul><ul><li>The rest were deficient in the required technical skills, fluency in English, ability to work in a team or deliver basic oral presentations. </li></ul><ul><li>Acc. to Nasscom-Mc Kinsey Report 2005 the Indian Industry will demand for 8.5 lakhs IT professionals & 1.4 million ITES-BPO professionals by 2010. </li></ul>
20. NASSCOM has taken the employment pyramid approach to better understand the industry’s skills requirement and create specific education and development initiatives basis that approach; RELEVANCE OF FINISHING SCHOOLS FOR 21 ST CENTURY GRADUATE ENGINEERS
21. Steps to goal 100 steps to Success of finishing school 35 steps by government 30 steps by graduates 35 steps by industry
22. INSTITUTIONS OFFERING FINISHING SCHOOLS School of employee education & development (SEED), Delhi NIIT IIIT , ALLAHABAD ACCENTURE MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECNOLOGY TVS group of companies IIT CHENNAI HRD ministry & AICTE NITs/IIT ROORKE &NASSCOM COLLABRATED WITH INSTITUTE
23. Models of recruitment followed by IT companies… <ul><li>Model I : The placed candidates are provided training for three to six months. A traditional model, having a huge drain on the system especially training infrastructure. </li></ul><ul><li>Model II : The IT company selects candidates based on a rigorous technical test, normally conducted after the induction programme. The IT company pays the training organization a facilitation fee for every candidate who gets selected. </li></ul>
24. <ul><li>Model III : The IT company selects from the referred resources & the selected few are put in an induction programme where the candidates pay a nominal fee. </li></ul><ul><li>Model IV : The training organizations train the candidates and provide them to IT companies on a “Contract” basis. This model is popular with many captive IT companies who do not want their employee numbers to swell. </li></ul>Models of recruitment followed by IT companies…
25. Finishing School at RGPV The viable solution for the void between the skills of present day graduates and requirements of the companies , RGPV has initiated a new finishing school named SHINING SCHOOL . It trains the students during the four year graduation period making them suitable to work in the corporate culture. Impetus has been given for the development of finishing school because the greatest challenge for employment in 21 st century would be to improve knowledge & worker’s productivity. Citing this challenge RGPV has taken a positive step in building the personality of M.P.’s graduates.
26. Shining school aims at <ul><li>Improving the communication skills and technical skills </li></ul><ul><li>Development the personality of students of RGTU. </li></ul><ul><li>Create more opportunities in today's scenario of market recession. </li></ul><ul><li>Increase the adaptability of students in interpersonal skills. </li></ul>
27. Three main agendas of shining school are <ul><li>Core skills : communication, numeracy, working with others, problem solving </li></ul>Soft skills : customer care, oral presentation skills, planning and organizing skills Personal qualities : punctuality, self-presentations , reliability, enthusiasm, willingness to learn.
28. LADDER TO SUCCESS
29. Conclusion <ul><li>Quality matters not the quantity. </li></ul><ul><li>Study by Harvard University :- 85% of jobs & promotions bcoz of the candidate’s attitude & only 15% due to facts and figures an engg. have. </li></ul><ul><li>If a=1 b=2...........................z=26 , then </li></ul><ul><li>KNOWLEDGE = 96% </li></ul><ul><li>HARDWORK = 98% </li></ul><ul><li>ATTITUDE = 100% </li></ul><ul><li>Knowledge Superpower = Finishing school + focus on practical knowledge + industry interface. </li></ul>
