Srinagar: Principal Secretary Skill Development Department (SDD) Asgar Hassan Samoon Thursday chaired a meeting to review the functioning of polytechnics and ITIs across Jammu and Kashmir and also assesses the progress on the settlement of audit paras at the civil secretariat here.

An official spokesman in a statement issued here said that speaking during the meeting, Samoon emphasised upon the principals and superintendents of polytechnics and ITIs to start those courses in their respective institutes which were related to the daily trades and could contribute immensely in the daily lives.

He directed them to use modern tools of teaching to develop critical thinking among the students.

Samoon directed them to start the course on wood technology across all ITIs and polytechnics so that the students could be acquainted with the skills of wood calligraphy and other modern works of wood-crafting.

Asking the officers to bring reforms in polytechnics and ITIs, he delved upon the principals and superintendents to assess the feasibility of starting a credit-based curriculum system in the institutes so that students could opt for higher studies after passing out from these institutes.
