Vocational Training

The Vocational Training Program has a symbiotic relationship with RLCC’s other departments and programs. The program aims to provide skills to local women that will enhance their opportunity and capability to seek jobs in the market and therefore better avail the education and health services available for their families. The selections of skills that are taught to women are based on several criteria including local market demand, availability of teachers, and need identified by the community.

Teacher Training Program
RLCC follows a systematic approach to teacher education for the whole of Shah Faisal Colony. RLCC believes in benefitting not only the teachers of the RLCC school but all schools in Shah Faisal Town. Therefore, RLCC maintains close links with schools in Shah Faisal Colony and teacher training opportunities are offered to all teachers of Shah Faisal Town to improve standards of teaching throughout the colony.

Adult Literacy Program
Basic literacy and numeracy are critical skills not only to enable women to seek employment, but in every  aspect  of  their  life.  RLCC  utilizes  the  Jugnoo  curriculum  and  methods  for  its  adult  literacy programme. Having said that, it is important to state that, RLCC has greatly adapted the method of examination and assessment of the Jugnoo Programme. The course can be taken in English or Urdu. The basic course aims at fast track learning for adults within a period of 3 months. Advanced courses then can fast track students to qualify for Matriculation exams as well. RLCC graduated 3 batches of students in adult literacy this year.

Skill Classes
RLCC offers skills based classes that have been popular amongst local women. The most popular of these classes are for cutting and sewing which enable women to not only become self-sufficient and sew for themselves and their families, but also earn money by stitching clothes for neighbours and relatives. In 2014-15, 128 women and 2015-2016, 148 women took admissions in cutting & sewing classes.
