The need for giving emphasis on the Skill Development, especially for the less educated, poor youth has been highlighted in various forums. The skill level and educational attainment of the work force determines the productivity, income levels as well as the adaptability of the working class in changing environment. Large percentage of population in India is living below poverty line. One of the important causes is lower percentage of skilled persons in the workforce. If the country can create a system of certification which not only recognizes their skills but also provides education and training in a mode that suits their economic compulsions, it will not only benefit the workforce to earn a decent living but also contribute to the national economy by better productivity of this workforce. Now the Government of India has taken the revolutionary decision to spread technology based industry oriented practical education through community college scheme.
To fulfill this target, as a Community College, we are now introduced two courses for the betterment of local community of Rajarhat-Gopalpur and its surrounding areas. They are as follows:

Knowing how to use a computer, especially a personal computer, is a basic skill necessary to succeed in business and function effectively in society.
In this context our college is introducing the course for the betterment of the students and surrounding community.
With the advancement of digital technologies, video and photo production businesses have both undergone revolutionary changes. Professional video production personnel and photographers are extensively making use of software techniques and digital equipment to achieve results that are not possible with traditional analogue methods.
It is without doubt that digitalization can bring about cost-effectiveness, and time savings as well as new challenges and opportunities to production professionals. The main aim of the programme is to enable students to acquire knowledge and understanding, and develop personal attributes and master essential technical and transferable skills to enable them work in commercial and fine art photography, or other related areas. The programme will also help to expand their experiences and outlook in relation to the world of art and creativity.
