Our Achievements - Student Profiler

The college launched a massive undertaking to obtain insight into student functioning by using the "The student profiler". The college has engaged in a student assessment drive where students have been screened for learning barriers before they enrol for courses.

This analyses social factors impacting on student certification, pass and dropout rates. Poor study skills and socio-economic factors have been identified as a major driver of student failure and dropout. By using the data obtained on every individual, course and campus, the College can now plan for an intervention strategy to address the challenges and these gaps.

Artisanship Development Programmes were launched in April 2014. 26 Artisans had been trained in bricklaying, in fitting and turning and electrical engineering and as part of the "Decade of the Artisan". ADT students are engaged in work experiential learning at Human Settlement Department.
