Started in 2017, the Work Readiness Programme is a pre-employment programme given to all deaf youth seeking job opportunities. Students are trained in workplace behavior, etiquette and ethics to prepare them for work in a professional environment. The programme covers topics such as personality development, self-confidence, managing emotions and communication skills.
This programme also helps the candidates to overcome fear of attending job interviews and they learn to answer questions easily and to the point and develop self confidence within them. It is especially designed to help them deal with the unique challenges that they will, inevitably, face.
In 2005, the Placement Cell was created to help deaf students find preferred roles that match their aptitude.We have Deaf Trainers training our students as it helps the students bond better with their trainers as they feel united in facing similar challenges of being trained.
We also help the student integrate into the workplace by identifying a mentor and following up regularly, counseling the student, if required. Over the years, we have placed over 1,700 individuals in various organizations such as the Taj Group, the Oberoi Group, Reliance Retail, Max Retail, Out of the Blue, Amazon and Titan, Northern Trust.
