Teaching Activities (Student READY, Conferences/Seminars)

 

Student READY Programme –

Student READY (Rural Entrepreneurship Awareness Development Yojana), a flagship programme of ICAR aims to provide rural entrepreneurship awareness through practical experience in real-life situation in farm families and creating awareness among undergraduate students about various aspects of Community science. The Student READY programme will be taken up during VII and VIII semesters.

The one-year Student READY programme under College of Community Science has three components viz

  • Internship/ In-plant training
  • Rural Awareness Work Experience (RAWE)
  • Experiential Learning

 

In plant training 

To enrich the practical knowledge of the students, in-plant training is mandatory in the VII semester for a period of 70 days with a credit load of 0+10 credit hours. In this training, students will have to study a problem in industrial perspective and submit the reports to the university. Such in-plant trainings will provide an industrial exposure to the students as well as to develop their career in the industrial requirements.

The student will opt only one In- plant training module among the four modules of four different departments and will be trained in those institutes related to their opted module.

 

RAWE (Rural Agricultural Work experience)

In Rural Agricultural Work experience (RAWE) helps the students primarily to understand the rural situations, status of agricultural technologies adopted by the   farm women and farm families to prioritize their problems and to develop skills and attitude of working with farm families for overall development in rural area. This is also in the VII semester for a period of 10 weeks with 0+10 credit hours. Students will have to stay in their own / opted village to carry out the activities.

Experiential Learning Programme

Experiential Learning (EL) helps the student to develop competence, capability, capacity building, acquiring skills, expertise and confidence to start their own enterprise and turn “Job Creators instead of Job Seekers”. This is a step towards “Earn while Learn” concept. It provides the students an excellent opportunity to develop analytical and entrepreneurial skills and knowledge through meaningful hands on experience.

The students will take up any one of the following ELP modules for a period of 180 days with a credit load of 0+20 credit hours during the VIII semester.

  • Module-I - Bakery and confectionary
  • Module-2 - Development of Chic Craft
