Orientation Programme for Career Guidance at DPS Ranchi
Since the Education Act 2011, schools have been required to offer career guidance to their students. Some of this goal has been achieved, but their exact role remains a bone of contention. There is a dire requirement of training teachers to become future resource persons in the field of career guidance. They can do this by applying their pedagogic skills to the delivery of career learning.
With this agenda, DPS Ranchi inaugurated a two day orientation programme under the guidance of CBSE’s capacity building programme through its center of excellences(CoEs) at Vivekananda Auditorium in its premises.
The Principals , Vice- Principals, Counselors, psychologists and senior teachers of around 70 schools across Jharkhand registered themselves to be a part of it. The Resource persons who trained and guided the teachers for becoming Prospective resource persons in (PRP) in the field of career guidance were Dr Alok Gadia and Dr Somu Singh. Both the Resource persons are Associate Professors at the Faculty of Education, (Banaras Hindu University).The respective Educationists have been Resource Persons in various reputed Organizations and National Institutions.
The program began with the rendition of the welcome song which was followed by bouquet presentation. Then, the lighting of the lamp was done by Resource persons and other guests to invoke the Goddess of Knowledge.
After this, the scintillating performance of Indo-western Fusion Dance by students mesmerized the atmosphere.
The school Principal Dr Ram Singh further addressed the illuminaries and expressed his gratitude to the Resource persons for enriching the programme.He explained the importance of leadership skills in today’s time which plays a crucial role in shaping one’s life. He emphasized that the students must be updated with the new career options as per changing times which requires correct guidance from the teachers.
Dr Alok Gadia was further given the opportunity to speak in which he appreciated the work culture of DPS Ranchi. Speaking on the topic, he said that we have to break the traditional Indian concept of education and adopt the global concept. India promotes education for enlightenment whereas globally education means having a good career. Career refers to appointment in reputed organizations which demands the teachers to tap the latent potentials of the students in the right direction.
The respective Resource persons conducted an activity in which the educationists present were asked to name a suitable career option which began with their initials. The purpose of this activity was to foreground the multiple professions popular these days.
The Orientation programme proceeded in a unique way wherein the Dr Somu Singh along with Dr Gadia did a joint discussion under one roof with all the educationists present about how teachers can become good guides for their children so that they can select the career that suits their interests. The experts emphasized that teachers should be capable enough to analyse the needs of different students for their holistic development. This can be done by recognizing some unique quality of the child and by nurturing his/her creativity. Only then the child’s potential can be utilized to the fullest.
The Principals and Directors of various schools sportingly shared their experiences to upgrade the other teachers. Some of them were :Mrs Neeta Pandey( Principal Cambriam School), Mrs Golam Nabi Khan (Principal, SD DAV Jamtara), Mr Sandeep R. Dey ( Principal St Thomas High School), Mr S.K.

Plantation of Trees to protect Forests at DPS Ranchi
