SKILL TRAINING CENTRE
In order to bridge the gap between existing vocational training facilities in Puducherry and the demand for such activities, Satya Special School has launched various vocational training activities since its inception. The primary purpose of vocational training programme is to prepare individuals especially adults with disability between the ages of 15 and 25 years to face the world and make them employable in a variety of occupations.
The main vocational training programme comprises carpentry, jewellery making, making handicraft with dried flowers and leaves, mat weaving, tailoring, paper cup making, bag making, baking etc. Apart from these training activities, the focus is also on employability of PWDs for which various short-term training programmes on interpersonal skills, communication skills, and building one’s own self confidence are carried out. Satya Special School is also an implementing agency in Puducherry under the Prime Minister’s National Council on Skill Development Programme which was launched all over India. Around 20 of our PWDs have received training under this programme. Currently, around 66 beneficiaries are part of the Vocational Training Centre.
