A 10-day e-training showed me a clearer path towards effective communication, teamwork, the creativity of oneself, problem-solving techniques, critical thinking, willingness to learn, way to motivate learners/trainees, utilization of PPE, understanding about Interpersonal skills, and more importantly the teaching methods", Mr. Maharjan mentioned. He further added with his winsome smile, "now I am able to develop a lesson plan, plan practical activities, and understood the Terminal Performance Objective (TOP) and more importantly to gain trainees attention at the starting of the class session which I will definitely work out in the Operator Training Center where I am working since many years."
I am self-reliant and being able to support my family - Rajesh Tharu, Trainee
Mr. Rajesh Tharu, after his SLC was excluded to continue my further studies due to his weak economic condition. To support his family, he started working as a helper at a local motorcycle workshop. His friend advised him to take part in training on machine operation at JCB Operator Training Centre Nepalgunj that is being operated by Citizen Prabidhik Sikshyalaya and MAW Skills Academy.
Mr. Tharu said, “I immediately enrolled for training and experienced a very knowledgeable session (both theoretically and practically), being taught in comprehensible and realistic teaching methods. The classroom is well equipped and resourceful, along with the instructors who are very cooperative and helpful. Adequate land for practical just next to the classroom aided for the availability of practical operation of Excavator on time and whenever required.”
He further added, “Currently, I am working at Boudhanath Nirman Sewa as an operator and I am very happy for being self-reliant and being able to support my family.”
