Skill Building Programs

IT-enabled drafting for ITI Students

Objective:

Employability for students in the ITI courses

Program execution:

Independent program conducted by TCE employees

Computer aided design (CAD) and mechanical drafting are entry level skills that are core to our design engineering services. Several technical institutes in India have the draftsman trade in their curriculum. These courses are taken up by youngsters who cannot afford regular skill building programs. However these trades do not involve computer and IT applications. This skill gap which makes the youngsters enrolled in the government-supported ITI programs more employable is met with our unique Draftsman Design Application course as a CSR & Affirmative Action initiative.

TCEndeavour's Affirmative Action program to provide education and employability is designed to impart practical knowledge in TCE's core expertise. This program will help increase employability of SC/ST students with requisite qualifications. The plan is to provide training in IT drafting applications for 2nd year SC/ST students in the ITI draftsman trade. The program comprises three levels of training – Basic, Advanced & Specialist with a certification at the end of each level.

The pilot program is presently running in Bangalore and Chennai as a series of weekend courses. The TCEndeavour Champs

Volunteered to serve as Trainers. The students found the program extremely relevant as the training filled a skill gap in their regular ITI program. The students in Bangalore requested a fast-track course and completed the basic program in time for their ITI campus job interview schedules. The basic course covers the basics in AUTOCAD drafting application. This will provide students an edge over others in the campus recruitments.

The advanced course entails detailed application orientation that will help students qualify for apprenticeships in the industry. The specialist programs will involve training in piping, electrical and aspects of detailed design engineering. Students will be provided a certificate once they complete and qualify at each phase of the program. The basic course for the students in the pilot program is complete and some students found placements in the industry. The program will be extended to other locations in a phased manner.

Resource conservation in the infrastructure planning of an Aerotropolis township

Scope:

Design and project management of integrated infrastructure for the township of 1,700 acres covering water, sewerage, drainage, solid waste management, fire, disaster management, electrical distribution, telecommunication, safety and security aspects.

Value Added:

The solution proposed included rainwater harvesting and water management designed to retain 22 ponds covering over 11 hectares of area. These ponds are being preserved and over 300 ml of rainwater will be harvested in these ponds. The drainage system has been planned to route the surface water runoff surrounding through these ponds. The annual mass balance for the ponds reveals that at least, minimum water level will be maintained through summer.

Based on zero discharge concept, sewage generated from the township is proposed to be treated by Sequential Batch Reactor ( SBR ) process at the sewage treatment plant. It is proposed to provide tertiary treatment. Post tertiary treatment, the treated sewage water will be used for flushing and irrigation. The prescribed solution will result in 50% reduction of fresh water intake from 38 mld to 18 mld

VHND is organized by the Ministry of Health and Welfare as a part of National Rural Health Mission. During the visit, around 25 to 30 women (some pregnant, others lactating) had gathered in the centre for their regular health checkups. The team interacted with them to understand their knowledge on the VHND programme so far. They were also informed about the requirement of the vaccinations of the pregnant ladies and new born babies, which kind of diseases they prevent, the importance of institutional deliveries, and the government schemes which are present to facilitate all those who correctly follow all of these. The team also checked the health kits given to pregnant women, and advised them to use these kits regularly. It was inspiring to meet one particular lady, the mother of two girl children, who had opted for sterilization and was proudly raising the children with immense help from Laxmi Ladli Yojana of the Central Government.

Block level Supervisors are present to supervise the work done by the Sevikas. On interacting with the Sevikas, we got to understand the mentality of the locales and the challenges they face when carrying out their responsibilities. The TCE Jamshedpur team offered them solutions so that they can work smoothly. They found out that these ladies, although appointed for reaching out to the locale, have gaps in information about the facilities provided by the various government-run schemes. For example, they register girl children for the Ladli Laxmi Scheme, but have little idea how to avail the benefits of it. They also had very little information on Kanyadan Scheme, which is a scheme for financial help to girls belonging to BPL category (of 18 years of age or above) on their marriage. They were completely unaware of some other schemes like Pradhan Mantri Gambhir Bimari Yojana and Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Vidhva Pension Yojana.
