Capability Enhancement Scheme

Competitive exams provide students entry into many study-courses that are career-oriented. While these exams test the students’ knowledge of the subjects they study, they also check their skills in many other areas that are not necessarily part of the curriculum. The specialised training required to attempt and perform successfully in these entrance exams is imparted very often by in-house faculty who are qualified to do so. The departments or college also arranges for external faculty to conduct training courses to equip the students with the skills to get through these highly competitive exams.

The following are some of the many competitive entrance exams that our students attempt for which we provide training:

  • Bank Probationary Officer, Clerical & Short Service Commission, Life Insurance Corporation, Global Insurance Corporation, Railways Entrance Examination Training
  • Campus Recruitment Training
  • Common Admission Test (CAT), Xavier Aptitude Test (XAT), Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), Symbiosis National Aptitude Test (SNAP) Training Program
  • Training on National Eligibility Test/State Level Eligibility Test/Institute of Banking Personnel Selection (IBPS)
    Civil Services

In a market driven economy, education is more often than not a stepping stone to a career and a means of earning a livelihood. At the same time, young students who enter college lack the advantage of age or experience to make informed decisions regarding academic courses and career choices. With a view to assist them get clarity in the matter, the college provides students career counselling right from admission through the three years of education.

Career Counselling is conducted by various departments who bring in resource persons, agencies, institutions and industry representatives to interact with students. Students get the opportunity to undergo tests that gauge their aptitude based on which they can choose future options. The placement cell is another body within the college that helps students apply for suitable jobs that suit their abilities and skills.

MCC’s mission – Empowering Women – is an important factor that informs and influences the selection and implementation of many co-curricular and extracurricular courses. In addition to a strong academic foundation, we consider the development and honing of soft skills integral to the learning process. Globally, it is a matter of concern that people who have impeccable subject knowledge often fail to conduct themselves as ethical and responsible individuals and lack a civic sense. The soft skills courses are designed to overcome this deficit. MCC offers a range of such courses that help students understand Social and Work Ethics, Interpersonal Skills & Etiquette, Time Management and Team Dynamics. Students can also avail of courses that hone their Communication Skills, both spoken as well as written, Problem Solving Skills and help to build confidence. All these soft skills are aimed at inculcating students with personal attributes that will help them conduct themselves effectively in both social and work environments.

Remedial Coaching in all subjects is conducted throughout the academic year by the teaching faculty for those students who are identified as requiring extra help to cope with their academic programs. Apart from the regular remedial coaching following tests and exams, the faculty also caters to on-demand sessions by individuals and groups of students at any time during the semester. Sessions are usually conducted after regular classes.

Peer coaching is also part of remedial coaching. Students with higher cognitive skills are roped in to help classmates keep up with what is done in class and also with tests and exams. Teachers maintain a register of students attending remedial classes and follow up regularly on the progress they make.

The Language Lab is a well-equipped facility with ’Orell – iTell’ language lab software premium version installed. This special software enables a student to learn Sanskrit, Hindi, Kannada, English and German. A highly effective method of language teaching is employed here. A language student will be exposed to native speakers in order to get a more meaningful education.

It has facilities to enable a one-to-one learning experience for a student who gets exclusive attention from a teacher via instructions sent to her on the desktop. Her responses to the language exercises are constantly monitored and responded to, making this kind of new language learning more effective and productive.

All the systems are fitted with softwares that help both in English and other second language learning. Batches of students attend either regular or remedial classes in the lab where they have access to independent computer systems with audio accessories to assist the learning process.

This facility is often used to conduct bridge courses in a language. First-time learners of a language get personalised attention and enjoy interactive sessions that help them pick up the intricacies of a language faster.

As the name suggests, a Bridge Course, is a course that helps a student prepare to take on the challenges of college education. A college education, with its focus on select subjects can be a daunting task since it involves an intense and in-depth curriculum built around a particular field of knowledge. Many new students are overwhelmed by such a prospect, particularly if the subject they have opted to study is not something they have basic knowledge of.

A bridge course is designed to help students get a quick but effective exposure to a realm of knowledge; it is in effect a crash course serving to brace the student with some foundational information that introduces the student to the trajectory that a program is likely to take. Many departments in college have a bridge course which serves to introduce basic concepts and requirements of a subject’s study to a student.

These courses are conducted right at the commencement of the academic year to prepare the student for the rigors required of the longer program. Many language departments conduct bridge courses for students who may feel anxious about being thrown headfirst into a college life with no skills in understanding and communicating in a particular language. The Department of English, for instance, often conducts a spoken English bridge course for students from non-English medium background to help them cope with the language in which instruction will take place. it will also help these students communicate with fellow students and fit into college life.

Yoga and meditation are disciplines, the practice of which helps to connect the body and mind and thereby ensures both mental as well as physical health of an individual. In a technology-driven world, where most young people live sedentary lifestyles, limiting all activity to the operation of electronic gadgets like the computer and mobile phones, it is imperative that physical exercise becomes an integral part of education.

It is with this objective in mind that Mount Carmel College includes Yoga and Meditation as part of its students’ lives and activities. Almost all departments in college have at one point or the other hosted a yoga and meditation course as part of their co-curricular activities. These courses have been conducted by both internal and external professional trainers and are open to both students and teachers. In addition to these, the Centre for Extended Education (CEE) also regularly conducts yoga courses as part of its many certificate courses.

This course is popular with both students and teachers and has been reported to benefit the physical and mental condition of participants. Yoga is a great stress reliever and helps its practitioners to rejuvenate and get back to daily hectic routines with renewed vigour and energy. This course is offered for a minimal, affordable fee and has many people enrolled at any given time.

Our most important stakeholders are the students themselves. They are a large body of youngsters who are at a stage in life where they are psychologically and emotionally fragile. Concerns like sexuality, identity, academic demands and peer pressure often take a toll on the youth. For this reason, the college has counsellors on the campus on all working days.

They are available in person and throughout the working hours. Students are made aware of their presence and availability during orientation. The counsellors’ rooms are located in a quiet and pleasant part of the college campus – Mother of Carmel Block – conducive to the nature of their work.

Both staff and students can avail of counselling services. Mentors, who are responsible for monitoring their wards’ progress, direct them to the counsellors when the need arises. The counsellors maintain strict confidentiality where information regarding their clients is concerned.
