ITDA holds workshop
Bhadrachalam: Integrated Tribal Development Agency (ITDA) Project Director D Divya on Saturday exhorted students to take proper steps in shaping careers and realising their dreams. They should be careful while choosing the career path after completing SSC and Intermediate.
The students should work with grit to achieve their goals, she said while addressing a workshop on “Vocational education and employment opportunities” organised by ITDA, Bhadrachalam, in collaboration with Hyderabad-based Nirman Organisation at the Tribal Welfare Residential Junior College. The ITDA is conducting workshops in 64 residential schools and junior colleges in the State to create awareness among 1,000 students.
She said the workshop would help in enhancing the students’ awareness on competitive examinations, distance education programmes and government scholarships. Information would be provided to students on obtaining education loans.
Additional SP N Prakash Reddy said students of residential educational institutions should take their career options seriously. Vocationalisation of higher education would help students get jobs easily.
He lauded the ITDA PD for organising the workshop. Bhadrachalam RDO Anjaiah said the ITDA was organising the workshop to help rural students compete with those from cities. He advised students to make use of the career guidance facilities offered by ITDA and NGOs.
Agency DEO N Rajesh observed that the current generation of students were lucky. Nirman Organisation Director Mayur Patnala, CEO Chandrasekhar, coordinator DD Chander were present.
