Pailan Group of Institutions leads the way with Bengal’s first “Earn While You Learn”

In an effort to make education more rewarding and exciting for the students, Pailan Group of
Institutions brings forth Bengal’s first “Earn While You Learn” programme to empower students with
considerable economic freedom. This will not only help them embrace the industry experience but also give
them a leverage of up to Rs. 2 lakhs.
The novelty of this programme is that an aspirant trainee will be earning a stipend over the tenure of their
course duration. This will give them the opportunity to earn a sum of Rs. 50,000 – Rs.1,00,000 per year which
effectively reduces the real course fee for these courses.
All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) with an objective to offer on-the-job practical training to
enhance employability has made a Regulation called "National Employability Enhancement Mission"(NEEM)
Regulations 2013, vide Gazette Notification dated 15th April 2013 of AICTE. Taking inspiration from it, Pailan
Group of Institutions has taken the initiative to introduce the programme.

The objective of quality education is to enable a student to impart the learned knowledge on a real- time basis,
however, the goal does not come into fruition due to lack of availability of employable candidates.
Students who are freshly out of college are inadequate to understand the job pre- requisites and fail to deliver a
substantial service. In order to encourage a more productive workforce, THE UNIVERSITY GRANTS
COMMISSION HAS STRICTLY DEMANDED THAT ALL COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES must imbibe employment
opportunities as part of the student’s regular curriculum.

UGC UNDERLINES THE IMPORTANCE OF PROVIDING STUDENTS WITH ADEQUATE INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE in
order to enhance their skill level, competence, and employability. THE MINISTRY OF HRD EMPHASIZES THE
VITAL ROLE OF INTERNSHIPS as one of the main foundation of a students’ career. The advantage here is that
students can step onto the corporate ladder through internship opportunities, where they can learn and
demonstrate their skills, get valuable expertise, draw stipends and simultaneously secure themselves for full-
term employment with the same company.

 

A survey published in a leading business publication on May 1, 2019, mentions about a steep rise in internships
seekers as well as organizations opening up internship opportunities across various industry verticals, with
applications rising 80% in a year. Internships are more lucrative when offered with monetary compensations
leading to a higher retention rate among interns. According to Internshala – a virtual platform for placement
opportunities derives the fact that over 46% of internship roles have turned into placement offers by the end of
the tenure.
In the light of these developments, AICTE HAS SIGNED A MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING (MOU) WITH A
HOST OF INTERNSHIP COMPANIES. It is expected that Colleges and Universities utilize this informationto
facilitate internships for their students. Additionally, it is also mandatory for Institute.

Furthering the growth and development of skills as an agenda from the Hon’ble Prime Minister of India and the
Hon’ble Chief Minister of West Bengal, Pailan Group of Institutions has taken the step forward in a direction
where the future lies by facilitating for a harmonious communion of ‘Learning’ & ‘Earning’.
In its continuous endeavour for excellence, Pailan College of Management & Technology has signed a MoU with
The Creek Club, Kolkata’s No. 1 Eco Club who as industry leaders are ready to accommodate students from
Hospitality & Tourism sector in the functioning and administration of the club and its myriad activities.
Students from Hospitality and Tourism departments of Pailan Collegeof Management and Technology have
already attended upon over 8000 guests over 30 corporate events and 50 corporate retreats in the past six to
eight months. Two students of Hospitality department viz. Mr. Aman Pradhan and Mr. Arpit Paul after
partnering the ‘Earn While You Learn’ program at The Creek Club landed in jobs of high salary package at The
Park Hotel thereby commanding a leverage of approximately Rs. 2 lakhs. We have plan to create income for
more than 300 students over the next 2 years
In a golden opportunity to budding media professionals, under-graduate students of Media Science department
got to make short films and music videos in collaboration with the Pailan Film & Television Institute, a well
known and widely trusted brand in the field of filmmaking. Three films that were made by students included
student actors/performers and student technicians from a variety of backgrounds selected through open
audition process; and have been contacted by various streaming platforms for a web-release.
For students of Optometry and Hospital Management divisions, Pailan Eye Clinic and the upcoming Maternity
Clinic, offers the perfect platform to hone their skills and draw entry level remuneration for their services. Pailan
Eye Clinic regularly offers affordable treatment for the community members of the region and with the
upcoming maternity clinic in the premises; the community stands to gain positives in the medical care facilities
heading into 2020.
Dr. Ayanangshu Sarkar, Director (MBA Divn), Pailan College of Management & Technology said: “জ্ঞানার্জন এর
সাথে অর্থ উপার্জন। – now this programme is unique in the sense that we are able to create income
opportunities for the aspirant students. Given the fact that these courses have huge weightage on practical
exposure and Pailan Group of Institutions has its resources to provide both on job training and income, has
bridged the gap. Students will earn beyond their class hours getting associated with Creek Club, Pailan Film and
Television Institute and health and optometry clinic to support themselves which is a common practice in

western countries. We believe this programme will help many meritorious students from humble background to
achieve their dreams in near future.”
As of now, five professional industry oriented courses have been brought under the aegis of “Earn While You
Learn” program – B.Sc in Media Science (BMS), BBA in Hospital Management (BHM), Bachelor of Clinical
Optometry (B.Optom), B.Sc in Hospitality & Hotel Administration (BHHA) and Bachelor in Travel & Tourism

In the future, Pailan Group of Institutions plans to expand this programme to more under-graduate and post-
graduate courses.
