School to College Program

School to College (S2C) is a major academic transition that most students face at some point in their life. With new expectations and new prospects, arise new challenges for students during this transition period. There is a dire need for students to address these challenges and get ready to face their college life with great enthusiasm.

We at Smart Training Resources (India) Pvt Ltd. have introduced the School to College (S2C) program to equip students with better soft skills, better placement perspective and better coping mechanism.

Features of the School to College Program

If you are a student in the School to College (S2C) transition phase, here is what this program can offer you to gear up for your college life. This program is suitable for 1st year students who have just started their college academics. However, for those who have missed the bus, the 2nd year is not too late either.

Goal Setting

Setting goals not only give the student a sense of direction in life but also play great role in increasing one’s self confidence and motivation. A student’s goals can vary greatly, ranging from personal milestones to academic performances and even professional achievements.

Insight into Placement Pre-requisites

Understanding the intricacies of the placement process and the recruitment trends of the job industry are very essential for all students. It can help them plan and prepare well in advance so that they are able to face the campus recruitment drive with confidence.

Study Techniques

Learning correct Study Techniques will help a student go a long way in becoming more organized and efficient. Laying a strong foundation in the 1st year itself is of paramount importance as it not only makes the academic process simpler but also makes it a lot more enjoyable.

Speed Maths

Speed and accuracy are not just pre-requisites for an optimum performance in the aptitude test. In regular day to day calculations and in the academic curriculum speed maths plays a vital role. The earlier a student gets a hang of the technique and methodology, the more prepared he/she would be.

Language Skills

Language skills such as listening, speaking, reading and writing are an integral part of the learning process. These skills are essential not just for academic and professional success but also to function harmoniously in society.

Effective Communication & Presentation

The ability to present oneself and communicate effectively adds more value and credibility to the academic and professional profile of the individual.
