Capability Development & Skill Enhancement Programmes
The modern era that we live in demands a unique set of skills and knowledge that caters to the needs and challenges of the century. Understanding the need of the hour, Sacred Heart College has initiated various capability development and skill enhancement programmes to positively contribute to the nation’s efforts to address the demand-supply mismatch. These programmes are stimulating factors in getting the students job-ready and socially responsible.
Soft skills include any skill that can be classified as a personality trait or a habit. It includes social skills, interpersonal skills, and a positive attitude. These are the skills that define one’s relationships with other people, or how one to approach life and work. Sacred Heart College has structured soft skill development programmes for various departments through which students are trained and equipped to face challenges of the modern business world.
Language and Communication Skills
Language development and communication skills are the different ways one understands and communicates, of which spoken words are only a part. A language is a tool for effective communication. At Sacred Heart College, we offer various Language and Communication Skill Enhancement programmes to make our students effortless in communication. Every course has a mandatory presentation by the student with focus on communication skills, enabling each of them to develop self confidence and communication skills.
‘Life Skills’ refers to the skills one needs to make the most out of life. Any skill that is useful in one’s life can be considered a life skill. Sacred Heart College focuses on the holistic development of the students. After the WHO listing of life skills (1. Problem Solving 2. Decision Making 3. Creative Thinking 4. Critical Thinking 5. Self Awareness 6. Empathy 8. Good Communication 9. Management of Stress 10. Management of Emotions), our school of communication has developed a course for imparting these skills.
Awareness of Trends and Technology
Technology trend awareness as a skill refers to being mindful of the technology that is recently becoming popular and is readily accepted in the market or industry. It also encompasses one’s ability to recognize and understand the usefulness of any such technology for success. Regardless of which industry one falls under or which department one works under, keeping up with the technology trends is imperative. Towards this end, Heartian Beavers, an SH initiative, make efforts to keep the campus and the students are abreast with the latest technologies by giving training in the same.
