WorkSkills Program (WSP)
The WorkSkills Program is a 6 month program which has been designed by keeping in mind the general foundation skills that everyone needs to have in order to survive and succeed in today's globalized workplaces. The WSP is spread over 14 courses and 83 modules, which are all covered under the six sets, viz, How Do You Learn How to Learn, English for Success, Computers in Workplaces, Winning a Good Job, Making Progress in The Job, and Advancing in Your Career. The program integrates seamlessly into the existing setup of colleges and universities as it only requires a computer lab with broadband connectivity.
