No Full Stop to Knowledge
Sushil Kumar, Rajasthan
Who doesn’t value recognition? It was a great feeling for Sushil Kumar, Principal of Apex Public School in Bhadra, Rajasthan, when his school received CBSE affiliation. But the journey ahead was not as simple. Everything was target oriented, from syllabus to application of CCE method of teaching to even leading teachers.
It was back to school for Sushil, who attended the Effective School Management & Leadership programme organized by Centum Learning in partnership with CBSE in New Delhi. He says, “My perspective changed after training. I started learning new methods of teaching. I sent my teachers to get trained for CCE method of evaluation giving them the freedom to experiment and implement new methods of teaching.”
The school initiated projects for students in winter break allowing students to utilize their time fruitfully and open new horizons of learning.
According to Sushil, his decision making abilities were enhanced after the programme and he now deals with parents more confidently.
Indeed it was a road less travelled for Sushil Kumar, but some effort, hard work and right guidance has made him realize his dream of making his school a better abode of knowledge.
"My confidence and decision making abilities have increased substantially".

Rajeev Bairwa, Bihar
Life was not easy for Rajeev Bairwa, an uneducated and unemployed youth from Gaya in Bihar.

How then could a youth hope for a better life when each passing day was a struggle to find suitable employment and a decent living?
Fortunately for Rajeev, Centum Learning was not far away. He was one among the lucky few who got selected for training at Centum Skill Development Center changing his life forever. Today, Rajeev works at Navabharath Fertilizers in Jagdishpur. He is an agro consultant counseling farmers on use of fertilizers. Rajeev has learnt to operate computers and is the only person in his village with this skill set
"My confidence has been restored. Centum Learning has changed my life. After I received training from Centum Learning, I was placed in Navabharath Fertilizers where I was productive from the very first day. There are challenges but my life has certainly improved and my dreams are finally beginning to materialize," says a proud Rajeev. His mother is even more proud and exclaims, "Since he started earning, our living standards have improved and we don’t struggle for basic necessities as we did before. We have high hopes from him." Truly, Rajeev is a hero for youth in his village and Centum Learning the savior for hundreds of youth like him around the country.
