College of Open Learning of Delhi University invites admissions in skill based industry training courses”
The COL on its website says, “Graduation degree does not empower the students to get a job instantly. Most Indian graduates do not match the employment profile required by industry in a competitive global environment. Academic achievements not withstanding , graduates have no means to acquire technical, language and presentation skills.” Vocational courses are being introduced for the benefit of such students.
Student of DU affiliated colleges or departments can apply. As of now other students, or those having passed out of college cannot.
The COL is known for its basic under-graduate, PG degree in Arts Science and Commerce.

Unfortunately the COL website claims to produce “toppers” in various disciplines, which means that they themselves do not understand the importance of industry based skills. What they have not mentioned is which companies come recruiting on Campus and what kind of slaries are being offered. Yes there are a handful of students, but it is not clear if they were placed from Campus.
A good site but may not attract good students to take these very wonderful short term courses. May be the students need make more efforts in site updation and design.
The classes for these courses are conducted at COL, Keshav Puram Centre, New Delhi.
