Synergy workshop for Karyakarta Palak of commerce students was held on 21.10.2018 at Thane. 14 KPs, 2 karyakartas and 2 alumni were present.
This was 1st such workshop organized for KPs of commerce students, with the sole objective of empowering them to understand processes, identify problems and address them, in order to achieve our common goal of academic progress of the student.
A presentation covering all basics aspects of what a KP of commerce students should be aware of was given by Varsha Joshi, and participants were briefed on practical and theoretical subjects.
For understanding theoretical subjects books as well as related You Tube videos can be referred and explained to their palyas in case they find difficulties in understanding topics. For practical subjects (Accounts and Maths), students can approach the Commerce Career Guidance Team, which has now started doubt solving lectures at Thane and Shahapur.
Through Role Play, the importance of Banking Exams was made known. It was emphasized that students should be explained about the job opportunities available after passing these exams and hard work, self-study and regular practice are very important. There was sharing of experience of co-ordination with career guidance team, by KP -Jyoti Patwardhan and two alumni students of VSM namely Pooja Bhoir & Mayuri Londhe.
At the end of the session, KPs felt that they got to know how to communicate with their palyas more effectively on the various aspects of the courses and topics they are pursuing. It was observed that students were very casual about Bank Coaching classes held in Thane. After the workshop, KPs felt that they will be able to emphasize upon their playas the importance of attending these classes regularly and also can keep a track of their progress, in the larger interest of the students.
There was a demand for forming Group for Commerce KPs for better co-ordination and exchange of information, the career guidance team agreed to this.
