Chandigarh, April 23

Amid the lockdown, 2.79 lakh students of 117 government-run Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs) in the state have taken to online classes being run by the Directorate of Technical Education and Industrial Training. This includes 49 all-women ITIs.

Even in the ongoing wheat harvesting season, when students in rural areas are busy assisting their families, the department has registered 85 per cent attendance of students in the online classes.

Principal Secretary, Technical Education, Anurag Verma said the department in the past week had covered 44 trades. To ensure attendance of the instructors conducting the online classes, nodal officers had been appointed.

Since the syllabus of ITIs involves 70 per cent practicals, the department has sought help of the Director General of Training in the eventuality of the lockdown being extended. Presently, the students are being taught the theoretical portion and the training content includes videos of theory and practical. For the convenience of students, the timings of online classes are 11 am to 1 pm and 3 pm to 5 pm. But with the harvesting season, the classes are being held as early as 7 am and as late as 7 pm. — TNS
