Last week an apprenticeship awareness programme was held at St Aloysius I.T.I auditorium, Mangalore, for the students. During the programme, Fr Cyril DeMello, Director, addressing the crowd, mentioned that each student should be aware of the apprenticeship program and make the most out of this opportunity. He especially highlighted the National Trade certificate that the students receive has immense value in the industry.
Once they pass out from I.T.I they are conserved as semi-skilled technician that can help them join any industry as an apprentice. During their apprenticeship programme they will also receive a stipend while getting the experience of working in an industrial environment. He further added in his speech that industries offer apprenticeship programmes as there is a huge requirement of skilled technicians in the industry and urged the students to take full benefit from these programmes.
