Here is the second part of my post about the ASSET Program
The current semester would have 7 sessions on the dates listed below
1. Aug 22nd
2. Aug 29th
3. Sept 5th
4. Sept 26th
5. Oct 3rd
6. Oct 10th
7. Oct 31st
This will be followed by 9 sessions in the next semester starting Jan-2013
In no particular order, the following will be the broad areas covered in the sessions
- Greeting Etiquette & Mannerisms
- Role Play
- Vocabulary practice
- Confidence building
- Impromptu talks
- Public Speaking
- Communication Skills (verbal and non-verbal)
- Telephone Etiquette
- News Paper Reading
- Listening Skills
- Rapport Building
- Group Discussions
- Presentation skills
- Leadership skills
- Brain Storming
The sessions will be interactive with role playing, games, audio and video sessions and less of classroom type teaching.
To measure the effectiveness of the course, a progress card is being designed which will capture before-and-after metrics for each student. A feedback mechanism to evaluate the trainer is also being put in place. After every session, we will get a summary report from the trainers with their comments.
Hope some of you can visit the college during these training sessions to get a first hand feel of how things are happening.
In the next post I will share some details about the trainers and their selection process.
