KViK students enjoy one day in their short course in skill training with pure fun and joy. We call it ‘Ethnic Day’. Friday 25th Jan was one such day. The students kept aside their note books, dressed in ethnic clothes and competed in variety of talent contests. Then there were games which created instant bonding and raised their self esteem. Prizes werer distributed to those who showed their talent and competitive spirit. The day is wrapped up with sumptuous Pulav!
There are different methods of dousing a fire. Different types of extinguishers to be used for in different situations. for example, CO2 extinguisher is more effective than powder type in dealing with fire where electrical or electronic gadgets and computers are involved.
Monday, 7th Jan.2017 heralded a new beginning for KViK. Under the Chief Minister’s Kaushalya Karnataka Yojane (CMKKY), KViK started training of students enlisted by the government under the Karnataka Skill Mission in following skills: (1) Field Technician- Home Appliances, (2) Plumber-General, (3) Data Entry Operator and (4) Assistant Beauty Therapist. The training is free and placement is assured after training. The classes started after orientation, handing over student kits and familarisation of training methods.
KViK trains its students not only in technical skills as per prescribed curriculum but also ‘soft’ skills to make them preferred choice for any employer. Training in 5Ss quality principles evolved by Toyota Motor Corporation is one of them. By organising one’s work place in a scientific way, a worker increases his/her efficiency and productivity. It reduces time taken to find tools or files needed for work and eliminates waste in many ways. More importantly, it enhances quality of output. The principles apply equally to office and file maintenance in computers.
The 5S principles are so called because their first letter starts with ‘S’ in Japanese language. They are rougly expressed in English as follows:
- A place for everything.
- Everything in it’s place.
- Standardisation: Right tool for right work.
- Clean every day. Keep It ready to use.
- Review and revise. Remove unwanted item.
On 14th Dec.2019, our students of Computer Basics & Tally re-organised our store room and arranged it as per “5S” principles. The result is the orderly arrangement of tools and gadgets with proper labeling and removing unwanted material. Now not only they are confident of working efficiently, but a have sense of achievement!
