BANGALORE: In a trail blazing attempt at grooming housewives and women to become work-ready, a novel initiative named ‘Woman Accomplished’ was launched by Dayanada Sagar institutions in the city recently.

Aimed at training women of all age groups and different backgrounds, ‘Woman Accomplished’ seeks to provide languages, IT and life skills training at various levels to illiterates, semi-literates, school and college dropouts and also those with collegiate education.

The target groups are basically homemakers, with very little exposure to formal education and require training in skills in a formal work environment.

The training modules are structured in such a way that the training begins at the basic levels to the advanced levels, based on the outcomes of the first level of training.

The training syllabi would include English language and Information Technology basics besides lectures by various subject experts.

The course, of three months duration, would be held from Monday to

Friday  for three hours, with each hour stipulated for English, IT and health personal care subject.

On successful training in basic course, the trainees would be awarded a DSI Certification.

The depth of course content would gradually increase to advanced levels overtime and based on the individuals responses to the training exercise.

The training would be imparted by a new voice and new face every day to bring in variety and diversity in learning experience in the form of listening to different voices, talking styles, expression, new words and phrases etc.

“While training in IT would enable these trained women to open an email account, write a letter using MS Word, search for

information on the net, network on social media those with better grasp of ability can take to advanced learning courses,” said R Janardhan, senior executive vice president of Dayananda Sagar institution.
