VLCC agreement

The VLCC Institute, New Delhi, recently signed a partnership agreement with NSDC on the sidelines of its 16th annual convocation function. It will be working with NSDC on training, certifications, employment and entrepreneurship.

ICAS scheme

Macmillan Education has launched the ICAS programme for the Indian subcontinent. At present, 14,500 schools in 20 nations participate in ICAS and over 8.9m students are assessed under it. From Class II to Class XII, the language skills tested include, reading for meaning in factual and literary texts, syntax & vocabulary and in Science, skills of observing and measuring, interpreting, analysing data and reasoning. In Maths, it delves into evaluating Algebra and patterns, chance and data, measurement etc.

Nurture talent

The Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal University, has announced an enhanced curriculum for academic year 2018. With the revamp, students will be able to take up Open Electives — subjects not essentially from the area of specialisation they have chosen as their main stream. So, an engineering student wanting to pursue his passion, can chose to study journalism if it interests him and still manage to get credits.
