Kakul Misra, COO, Arc Skills, said, “The Psychological load of competition obliges a student to complete vast syllabus and devote excessive emphasis on various examinations. In this race of marks and examination, the preparation for future ready skills remain untouched and suddenly when they go for higher education and enter the corporate world, most find it difficult, especially to manage their personal finances. I strongly believe that a student should be proficient to manage their personal funds and learn basics of business-oriented communications before they enter the professional world. Through these fundamental Programs under Soar Skills, which includes Financial Literacy, Health Management, Business Writing Skills, we intend to enable our children with essential skills to cope up in this dynamic world, and develop a change quotient.”
The philosophy of teaching at Arc Skills is to make students skillful and reliant. Programs such as Business Writing are aimed to make the students to learn and practice different forms of communication within the corporate world and help them better communicate in a professional manner when they are ready. Financial literacy is developed to make the child understand the critical financial market trends and manage finances.
