Vinayakrao Patil Mahavidyalaya, Vaijapur has internalized the practice of training and placing students in various companies. Initially, there were a host of challenges and instead of crying over them, we explored the hidden opportunities in the set up. The first mission of the college is to make the rural youth self-reliant and develop leadership traits in them.

The fact that Vaijapur Tehsil which comprises of 150 drought-prone villages deprives it of progress even after 70 years of independence. Since its establishment in 1968, the college has been the centre of social, cultural and economic transformation. True to its spirit, the students passing out from this college secured jobs in the field like teaching, banking, law, defence, police depts. other government and private sectors. Large was the number of students who preferred to experimental farming which has been their family occupation. A good chunk of these students started their own business as well. The scenario got changed after the 1995 when LPG was accepted and the job equation got changed. So there was a dire need to address the issues arising out of the new era.

In the new scenario, jobs were plenty but required skills. In adherence to the mission of the institute efforts, though, crude, were sporadically since 2006. As a part of this paradigm shift we introduced programmes like BBA, BCA, BCS, Biotechnology, Spoken English, Computer Hardware and Networking etc. As these programmes have scope for employment. Apart from the new courses, we realized that skill training was the crux of the problem. That realization was the real beginning.

The first major fillip was given in 2016 when there was a overhauling in the policy and the Training and Placement Cell had its real meaningful existence. In that year we conducted Affirmative Action Programme under the aegis of Tata Consultancy Services. It was a 100 hour training programme that covered components like soft skills, GD, logical reasoning, written communication etc. At the end of the programme 07 students got placed in TCS. This boosted our confidence and so we expanded the canvass of our activities. Similar programmes were conducted consistently and by August the Training and Placement Cell completed 18 training programmes and trained 1025 students. In our in-campus placement drives 125 students have been placed in various companies. The number of students who benefitted from these activities and got placed by approaching various employers is 412. The silver lining is that most of the students that we train and place belong to SC/ST/OBC/Miniority/Women/BPL/Students located in far flung areas. Training and Placement has been accorded a top priority in the campus today. The Training and Placement Cell has got facilities like a well-equipped office, lab, audio-visual classroom, small library etc. The cell is working with the motto ‘100% Training and 100% Placement’.

Aims and objectives

  • To generate awareness about various employment avenues in students
  • To conduct entrepreneurship awareness/development activities
  • To conduct training sessions/programmes for students
  • To conduct activities like aptitude tests, group discussions, mock interviews
  • To conduct collaborative activities with placement agencies, experts and trainers
  • To promote career counseling sessions of recently placed students and alumni
  • To establish Tie-ups and MoUs with industries, placement firms and corporate houses
  • To conduct activities for bridging the gap between industry and academia
  • To make rural youth employable and self-reliant through training and placement
  • To transform the rural society by training students and placing them in appropriate fields
  • To seek maximum participation of women students in training and placement activities
  • To inculcate life skills and values in rural students

As creating right kind of leadership in all walks of life is the objective of Vinayakrao Patil Mahavidyalaya, Vaijapur, throughout its meaningful existence spanning 54 years, the institute nurtures talent through conscious efforts. Some ten years ago the rural students of Vaijapur tehsil chose to join the expensive coaching for various competitive examinations. Most of them could not afford to pay the high fees as well as the cost of living in bigger cities like Aurangabad, Pune and Mumbai which have emerged as the coaching centres in the last two decades. Taking this situation into account the IQAC mooted the idea of starting a competitive examination cell in the college itself. With a few breakthroughs, the centre continued to attract the aspirants and the number just went on doubling every coming year. CEC pulled in the pool of expertise available in the college faculty and started to guide students. CEC has blossomed into a full-fledged tree today. During the last five years the CEC could render coaching to over 4000 students both on and off campus. CEC adopted a multi-pronged approach while grooming the aspirants: introducing them to various competitive examinations conducted by the state and central government and organizing competitive examinations.

Aims and objectives

  • To motivate students prepare for various competitive examinations

  • To arrange motivational lectures of successful aspirants/officers
