Fr. PT Joseph, the head of the Technical Education Council, organized the event at The Citadel, Province HQ on 18 November 2017. He said, “This Annual General Body Meeting of Don Bosco Technical Institutions is a maiden event of the third millennium synergizing all the technical centres and services within the province.”
Mr Senthil Kumar, Director, ATI Chennai, invited as the chief resource person of the day thanked Fr. Don Bosco, Vice Provincial of Chennai Province for the service rendered to the less privileged youth of Tamil Nadu and invited the Directors and Principals to step up the skilling of youth in their 15 institutions by tapping various resources available at Government and in corporate sectors for the benefit of the students.
“More importantly, adequate training for trainers should be provided, with the support of the ATI. We do not mind organising a separate programme for DBTEI. Besides your current industry tie ups, you should also explore tie ups with industrial associations. Another interesting development is our Distance Learning Project which is ISRO supported through their satellite interactive terminal. This will help us to offer mobile App based training, too,” informed Senthil Kumar.
Towards Don Bosco Technical Council’s dream of a Skill University, Mr Senthil Kumar expressed his views by saying that, “It would be a good idea to have such a centre for offering end to end levels of training and qualification to empower the candidates with sufficient skills for any industry-related skills.” The Additional Director of ATI Chennai, Mr Yuvaraj and Mr Charles, the private consultant presented the mission of ATI and showed how the engineers and diploma students fine tune their skills within two weeks at ATI. The latter moderated the discussions based on SWOT analysis of each institution.
Fr. James Bernard, Fr. Soundardass and Fr. Andrews Stephen coordinated the presentations of the 3 Polytechnic colleges, 5 ITIs and multiple VTCs respectively.
