Close collaboration with industry to teach people skills needed by employers; emphasises on life skills (such as personality grooming), communication skills and English; responds to local employment needs; allows school dropouts to go up the academic ladder; is a flexible and cost-effective way of skill-based learning.
Not integrated into other educational systems; very few mainstream universities recognise community college courses and allow vertical mobility for students.
– Out of the vast multitude of economically weaker sections of society, the project is focussed on school dropouts.
– These are the ever-increasing numbers of youngsters who are led astray and drop out from not just their education but quickly from regular society itself.
– It is usually only a matter of time before such young people get manipulated into becoming terrorists and extremists, posing a serious challenge to civilized society.
– It would be a significant service to society to pick these young minds and invest them with the right education, and prevent them from being corrupted.
The Trustees have the experience in handling multi-dimensional projects of this nature, and can also generate and marshal the services of key persons in the Industry and Government, as and when it becomes necessary.
The college will function in close consultation with the Indian Centre for Research and Development of Community Education (ICRDCE), Chennai, the nodal agency engaged in promoting Community College movement in India.

The Three Pillars of the Project
Thorough need analysis of employment and self-employment opportunities in the area is a must for any community college to operate on a firm footing.
Need analysis also helps in creating awareness among the people in the community of what they are missing, and how the college can fill the void.
Further, need analysis identifies the right kind of courses that would have ready acceptance, and ensures feasibility of conducting the courses.
The job market today follows the policy of “hire for attitude and train for skills.”
It is therefore vital for the college to get students to imbibe the right attitude, the right life-skills, and become “fit for life” apart from becoming “fit for the job.”
The focus of these skills is the student’s self-confidence, self-respect, and self-awareness & acceptance.
* Key life skills in this regard are:
* Personality development
* Inter-personal relationship (IPR) skills
* Communication, especially in English
* Computer education
* Practice of yoga & meditation
These four modules of life-skills will be mandatory for all students of the college.
A community college can succeed only with the active support and participation of the industrial, rural, commercial and service organisations of the locality.
These sectors can assist the college in the following ways:
# Curriculum design for job-oriented courses
# Part-time teaching and assessment of students
# On-the-job training
# Job placements
# Providing avenues for self-employment
Besides, these sectors can depute their representatives to the governing board of the college and its sub-committees.
Built on the foundation of these three pillars, the college can become effective and efficient from Day 1.
The Project Plan & Design
The scope and range of offerings of Nekimuddin Community College (NCC) have been carefully planned and the details required to be decided for a project of this nature have been thought out.
The notable features of NCC are:
* Enabling self-exploration * Focus on participation in community activities * On-the-job training
* Imparting life-coping and livelihood skills * Assurance of employment * Practice of yoga & meditation
Courses based on the need of the community
* All-round personality development
* Scope & encouragement for self-employment
* Work-readiness modules
The College Methodologies
It is our firm belief that the teaching methods, the atmosphere to be created, and the quality and volume of resources ploughed into the college should all be of the “best-in-class” variety.
This is the only way NCC will achieve distinction and can attract more and more youngsters who can redeem themselves.
To this end, some of the policies and precepts of the college are:
* Easy accessibility to the needy
* Subsidised fee structure
* Equal opportunity, co-education and flexible age limit for admissions
* Partnership with local industrial, commercial and service sectors
* Intensive training in spoken English
