KNOW YOUR SUPPLIER

Market Visit of MasterG Fashion Designing Course Trainees

For any business to grow and thrive, supply chain assessment is very important. It is also essential for risk mitigation as well. To make the trainees of the Fashion Designing Course running at SDC Khurja aware of raw material sourcing, they were taken for a market visit to Sanjay Colony, Okhla, and Govindpuri, New Delhi where they explored and learnt about different materials used in their trade.

They also got a first-hand exposure to marketing techniques, merchandising and display, and learned what's trending in fashion as well.

With such market visits, we try to give the best practical knowledge to our trainees to make sure that they become successful when they pass out and start their business.

SESSIONS FOR ENHANCING COMMUNICATION SKILL AT SDC

200 Trainees Learn to be Effective Communicators

People tend to take the communication process for granted. We generally figure that the communication between two or more people is no big deal. It just works. However, the reality is very different-the process of communication is actually impressively complex.

Considering its importance, SDC Khurja conducted a 2-day Life Skill Session for Communication at SDC for the trainees of the Centre. Held on 16th and 19th November, 2021, the sessions were attended by 200 participants in 5 batches.

Ms. Priya G, Master Trainer, conducted the sessions.

The participants were taken through the many aspects & principles of communication and were enthralled by the power of good communication.

At the end of the sessions, the participants felt they have transformed to be better communicators.

SDC would be organizing many more Life Skill sessions to enhance skills and empower the trainees of SDC to be successful in life.
