Government Polytechnic, Panaji, imparts quality education and training to the students of all the 12 streams. However it is just not enough to only provide academic inputs to the students. It is important to give them adequate inplant training and also to ensure that they get hands on experiance for some gainful employment after completing their education. It was basically with these twin objectives that the Department of Training and Placement was set up in 1975 in this Institute.
The Department arranges placement for inplant training for the sandwiched Diploma Programmes in Fabrication Technology & Erection Engineering and Food Technology. It also arranges for the training needs of the students of Modern Office Practices.
Inplant training is imparted in reputed companies in the Western Region under Amended Apprentices Act, 1973, approved by the Board of Apprenticeship Training, Western Region, Mumbai.
Campus Interviews are conducted for the students of Final Year and the Passed out students of all the Diploma Programmes and the students selected get placement in the industries. With the globalization of Indian economy, there is great expectation of exploring international market also.
The Board of Apprenticeship Training, Western Region, Mumbai, has devised a scheme, wherein the the students who are unemployed are absorbed as apprentices in various industries in westren region and are given a stipend of Rs.1400.00 within two years of passing.
A data base of the passed out students is maintained in the Department and the same is made available to the industries, course-wise, as per their needs. Developing a good Industry Institute Interaction is the goal of this Section.
