WALK WITH A SCHOLAR PROGRAMME

    Under the “New Initiatives in Higher Education” of the department of Collegiate Education, Government of Kerala, a specialized mentoring programme called Walk With a Scholar started in this college from 2015-16 academic year. It has been observed that the students in Arts, Science and Commerce Colleges do not get necessary orientation to prepare them for employment or guidance necessary to select areas for higher study. Walk With a Scholar (WWS) scheme proposes to arrange specialized mentoring programs for students in Under Graduate Programs in Arts, Science and Commerce and to provide guidance for their future. The scheme introduces the idea of mentoring and builds on the concept of mentor as a ‘Guide’ and ‘Friend’.

    The mentoring scheme for students will be purely voluntary in nature. It will be open for all students entering the first year of the Under Graduate Programme of Study. The Scheme aims at giving necessary orientation to needy students, to prepare them for employment and give them necessary guidance, motivation and necessary mental support to identify appropriate areas for higher study as well as employment. Thirty students from First year of the UG programme will be selected to this scheme and divided into groups. For the purpose of mentoring, two categories of mentors are identified: ‘Internal Mentors’ and External Mentors’. Internal Mentors are faculty from the College itself and they are persons who are able to do mentoring and support the scholars and act as a guide in building their career. External Mentors are reputed persons outside the College and from various professions. Their experience and expertise will help the student to identify a better career option.
