Admission to a slew of one-year diploma courses are open now at the GCC Community College in Alwarpet.
And they are best suited for economically poor students who have passed their Plus Two exams and seek skills that can help get a job quick.
While the bakery training and some courses related to the medical field fill up fast, openings are on for courses like Health Assistantship, Lab Technician and Radiology Tech courses as well in Spoken English.
The course fee is Rs.1500 and while classroom / online classes are taken at the classrooms located in the GCC premises behind Winners Bakery, hands-on training is given at Kauvery Hospitals closeby which is a partner here.
Says R. Sankaranarayanan, college administrator who retired as GCC school HM, “Due to the pandemic situation we are taking admissions till end September. GCC issues a certiificate to those who pass the courses and many have got good jobs.”
He is busy visiting schools to enlist students for the courses that need more admissions. And asks Mylaporeans to share this information with people whose children may benefit from these skills courses.
