CHENNAI:The Corporation of Chennai is putting in a dedicated effort to help Class 12 pass outs from its schools to continue their education by helping them get admitted to professional degrees and certification courses that can guarantee employment.

By keeping track of students who cleared the Class 12 exams, the civic body has been able to reach out to all eligible candidates. Officials said that vulnerable family and financial positions were often the reason for a child to discontinue education and seek employment. Given this background, the Corporation, in coordination with the Centre for Science and Learning (CSL), had appointed facilitators earlier this year, who would not only offer career guidance counselling but also submit status analysis reports of individual students.

QED CSL with The Chennai Corporation Education Dept together creating value for most deserving but least privileged students across 32 Higher secondary Schools. Reaching out to 6211, +2 School Students, QED CSL hope to see high potential kids in professional colleges or colleges of their choice. Moreover, failed candidates or low performers that wish for employable skills and opportunities are being channelised to vocational training courses.

QED CSL Analytics lab is churning out data on demand to 32 HMs, 10 AEOs, EO and the department. They are revelling in the power of multi-dimensional data analyses and reports putting it all to great use in reviews and remedial measures.

25 CSL counsellors and a help desk are on call and at camps - guiding the children as one would a sibling or friend. The children and parents are happy.

The Corporation of Chennai in association with QED (Everest Edusys & Solutions Pvt. Ltd) organized National Science Day Competition – 2015 for 154 Corporation Middle Schools.

Amma Arangam Auditorium, Shenoy Nagar Chennai witnessed a burst of vibrant activity on 26.02.2015 when 10 teams from Corporation Middle Schools compete for top 3 positions.
