Pre-Vocational and Vocational Training

After completion of special school education and training in daily living activities and functional academics, the autistic, the mentally challenged and students with other disabilities should undergo pre-vocational and vocational training (after 12 to 15 years of age depending on individual progress). The purpose of starting a well-equipped vocational training unit is that the students, after completion of vocational training, may either find a job or keep themselves occupied by forming a self-help group with their family members for doing business for livelihood. The Govt. of India has started a marketing organization to help them and is also providing soft loans to support such self-help groups / self-employed individuals. The students learn varied skills according to their interest and capabilities.

AHEAD provides training courses in:

• Computer skills

• Reception / Front Office / Information Desk job

• House Keeping in Multi-storied Buildings

• Art & Craft -Making of decorative bags, envelopes, cards, table mats, coasters, door mats etc.

• Masala grinding and packaging of various spices and pulses

• Stitching & knitting

• Cultural Training

The rooftop vocational training unit at AHEAD is used to give pre-vocational and vocational training to the differently abled teenagers and adults to achieve independent livelihood and rehabilitation.

We conduct government approved training courses in computer and making of handicrafts items. Our students regularly appear in job-fairs organized by us, various other organizations and Government of West Bengal. Many of our students have been successful in getting jobs while some have started their own enterprises.
