KISS has initiated “Earn While You Learn” Program. This programme provides opportunities to the students to earn while they are learning through the part-time jobs and the entrepreneurial projects thus preparing them to shoulder professional assignments with relative ease. It is implemented through its vocational training and skill development.
In a special move, KISS has given appointment to 50 students trained under Sports Authority of India as sports trainers to assist in-house trainers. They will coach 5000 students of KISS selected in 50 different sports according to various sports parameters, strengths and capabilities after conducting special tests. This sports training programme believes in the motto
“Catch them young and Catch them right.”
“KISS has always given top priority to sports because of which the students have reached and played at National and International level. In next ten years, students of KISS shall win in every event of Olympics and other International games. This is possible because we have huge sports facilities and environment and passion to make the students excel.” said Prof. Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KIIT and KISS.
Further, 80 girls trained under Handicrafts Technical Training Programme under HRD Scheme on Embroidery cum Applique Craft and Tribal/Saura Art sponsored by Office of Development Commissioner (Handicrafts), Ministry of Textiles, Government of India were appointed as master trainers to teach the skill to 2000 fellow girls at KISS.
