WWS Programme – Objectives

It has been observed that the students in Arts, Science and Commerce Colleges do not get necessary orientation to prepare them for employment or guidance necessary to select areas for higher study. Walk With a Scholar (WWS) scheme proposes to arrange specialized mentoring programs for students in Under Graduate Programs in Arts, Science and Commerce and to provide guidance for their future. The scheme introduces the idea of mentoring and builds on the concept of mentor as a ‘Guide’ and ‘Friend’. The mentoring scheme for students will be purely voluntary in nature. It will be open for all students entering the first year of the Under Graduate Programme of Study. The Scheme aims at giving necessary orientation to needy students, to prepare them for employment and give them necessary guidance, motivation and necessary mental support to identify appropriate areas for higher study as well as employment. The mentoring scheme should be planned to identify the opportunities available for the scholars, the areas suitable for them, the manner in which the scholar should proceed before them and evolve ways by which they can be acquired. There are two categories of mentors for the programme – Internal Mentor (Faculties from Farook College) and External Mentor (Expert in various fields). Internal Mentor conducts internal mentoring sessions and External Mentor conducts external mentoring sessions on holidays.
