SKILLS AND COMPETENCIES - STRIKING THE BALANCE AT ACE FOUNDATION -
Delivering skills and competencies at ACE Foundation since 28th march, 2020. It has been already 5 years, and time has flown and the institute has gone from strength to strength. When we started it was more about technical skills, as we went into the Training of Trainers by the SWISS system. I could capture the essence of the vocational education in SWISS Pedagology-it was beyond the skills, there was a very strong element of behaviors built into it. The linkage and clarity of understanding became very apparent after becoming an Empretec Graduate. The I.P.E.R.C.A. way to education in the SWISS Vocational Education is what differentiates this program of education from conventional technical skills. Conventional short term program would look to transfer the technical skills in 300 to 600 hours and churn out volumes. But having understood the IPERCA methodology which is about behaviors and skills together ACE Foundation aligned with the NSDC 6 months program for certification. But taking the duration to 3000+ hours of theory & practical, and 1000+ hours of industry on the job - a total of 4000+ hours before they got employed. The impact of wholesome education of technical skills and competencies combined has allowed ACE Foundation to be able to fulfill its vision of establishing a bridge between the industry and students and being able to roll out students who are competent enough to absorb more skills and be able to improve the competitiveness of their host industry, and both being satisfied. We are happy that in the past one year with Empretec Workshops being done across Rhino & ACE Foundation team, the understanding of the common purpose has percolated down into the team, and the ownership of the institution has reached right down to the students. It is the students of the 3rd semester who explain the institute with pride as owners and there is nothing more satisfying in the vision, values, and mission of the institution being absorbed across all the stakeholders. ACE Foundation in 5 years has built a model that is Replicable, Scalable and aligns with the combination of skills and competencies – combining two worlds together – technology and behaviors!
