Course Details

Talent Development Course

This is an ambitious course designed in pursuance of CCEK’s policy of Catch them young. It is specifically meant for helping our young minds equip themselves for braving challenges in the competitive world. Even an informal study of the nature of such challenges would reveal that communication skills and general knowledge are the most formidable of these.

CCEK proposes to initiate a series of steps to impart relevant skills to bright, young minds. The Centre believes that only through a comprehensive, well-devised, protean course of action can this be accomplished.

‘Talent Development Course for High School Students’ is a three year programme designed in such a way that it will not hamper the student’s regular academic work.

Through modern instructional modules and techniques, which would include brainstorming and interactive sessions with experts, the selected students will get a real taste of holistic education.

While CCEK is fully aware of the limitations of such an ambitious programme, it stands firm in its resolve to nurture talent and generate confidence.

CCEK also proposes to organise contact classes for the enrolled even after they leave school to pursue higher studies.

Civil Service Academy

The Government of Kerala has issued orders for the establishment of a ‘Civil Service Academy’ in Thiruvananthapuram, to coach our young men and women for IAS and allied examinations. The Training Centre, which is to function under the aegis of CCEK, is a high-tech academy where there will be Internet library and vide-conferencing facilities.

So, once the boys and girls are admitted to the Talent Development Course, they will not have to turn any where else for career guidance.

BigLeap has also been conducting both domain specific and soft training program and the candidates were enormously benefited by their training.

Employability Enhancement Program

Our primary strategy is to conduct the job fair in Thiruvananthapuram. The methodology is

  • Candidates will be asked to take an assessment exam.
  • The assessment exam is conducted by a leading Bangalore based company, whose exam module is accepted by all major MNC’s.
  • These MNC’s guarantee a job to candidates who have passed the exam.
  • Training will be given to those candidates who were not able to land a job due to lack of soft skills, such as communication and presentation skills.
  • Our training program ensures maximum success to candidates who have commitment and have a mind set to reach the top of the ladder.

CCEK has thorough knowledge about BigLeap’s practical experience in conducting the program successfully. Thus, CCEK assures that there won’t be any difficulty or drawbacks in conducting the program. CCEK has full faith in its ability and feels that the program will be a grant success.

Under the above circumstances, Hon’ble Minister/ Chairman, Governing body, CCEK, may be pleased to give permission to Director, CCEK to sign an MoU with BigLeap for the successful implementation of the Employability Enhancement program.

Scheme to get mileage for the Government

During inquiry, some ideas and suggestions were put forward by which the Government of Kerala can take mileage and have a good rapport with the youths of the state, by announcing Payback Scholarship scheme.

I am attaching here with the details of the project.
