Based on the above discussion points the team had agreed to have common action points for all the centres considering the need for having a better impact on the beneficiaries.

  1. Quality of placements to be improved, if the trainees are not willing to migrate, the centre team will have to arrange meetings with parents for counselling them and with employers to negotiate for better quality. If this is not maintained with immediate effect the employer will be cancelled.
  2. Centers will have to increase the number of quality placement lead as per the national standards of the organization. Each lead identified will be cross verified by the State team physically and then approved by the National team considering all the required criteria.
  3. Each batch and trainee is required to have 85% of attendance. Any trainee with less than 85% attendance will have to be dropped off by the centre within 2 days or else State MIS will drop it automatically with 2 warnings.
  4. As a normal norm each centre and batch will have specific target’s to be achieved, even if candidates are dropped off (either not interested/poor attendance), they will have to re-mobilize and achieve targets. All this would reflect on their performance appraisal in the forthcoming year.
  5. The State Operations, MIS, Placement and Finance will visit the centres at regular intervals to orient the candidates, conduct WRM, physical verification, documentation and monitoring purposes.
  6. Weekly centre team meetings with the centre in charge, trainers and state team to be conducted regularly. This has to be minuted and shared with the concerned for necessary action.
  7. Each centre trainer will have to share the plan for each week on an hourly basis. This will be closely monitored by the state team and reported to the respective centre in charge of the progress.
  8. The Center Team (Trainers and Center Head) and State Team need to have meetings with employers before starting the batch and negotiate with employers for better quality. If the employer is found inefficient as per the National standards the employer has to be replaced with immediate effect.
  9. From the next batches State Team will share the assessment results along with the number present, absent and pass percentage.
  10. Staff needs to recruit on priority with April 1st as joining dates.

The batch review has been successful, went on well and the entire centres have expressed their observations, recommendations and expectations. It has created a positive impact on all the participants and the team has strong-willed to implement the quality of the training, attendance and placements percentage.
