Our Philosophy

At SVRCC, we believe in holistic education, espousing the values of our guide and muse, Swami Vivekananda. We strive to blend academic rigour with the teaching of the philosophy of positive, healthy, joyful and purposeful living to our students.

Apart from the rigorous technical training provided, we endeavor to awaken the humanity within each student by involving them in our extensive community service activities, to inculcate the "spirit of giving back".

Apart from this, we also provide sports training and extra-curricular activities to keep students engaged and motivated in attending the institution. At SVRCC, we go the extra mile by engaging parents in productive dialogue with the institution to help them understand their children’s progress enabling both parents and children to maintain peaceful relations at home.

A Different Approach

Our Methodology

The one-year training is split into 9 months of conceptual training and 3-months of internship at one of our local industry partners. While this is the pedagogy followed, the curriculum for holistic education includes many softer components, like –

Love and Care

At SVRCC, we choose to accept students for who they are and seek to bring about a change in their perspective and embracing of a positive outlook on life.

Focus on the inner journey

We mandate yoga and meditation for all students at SVRCC as this helps students stay alert during the classes.

Soft Skills

We target the holistic growth and advancement of our students by teaching them essential and mandatory life and soft skills, to improve their personality.

Technical and practical training

The technical training comprises 3 months of internship with affiliated local industry partners, besides workplace and plant visits as required during conceptual training.

Community service and inclusivity

Service activities include visiting orphanages, old age homes and other such public service outfits, creating awareness for social issues, and pro-environment activities.

Final assessment and evaluation

Regular periodic internal assessment is done to assess learning levels and take corrective action. There is an annual examination. Courses registered with PMKVY also have NSDC-sponsored annual assessments.

Diversity and Inclusion

SVRCC promotes and appreciates diversity and inclusion in everything that it does. There is no discrimination on the basis of ethnicity, gender, age, disability, personality type, thinking style, sexual orientation, education or religion.

Girl Child and Women Empowerment

At SVRCC, we continuously strive to push the boundaries of what “women’s education” is all about.

While we offer courses traditionally preferred by women such as fashion design, garment making, nursing assistant, hospitality etc. we also encourage our girl students to pursue training in fields not often chosen by women.

  • When I first saw this college, I only saw a thatched roof and without utilities and wondered if I should choose it. It is the best thing I could have given to my daughter. It is then I realized that it is not so much the facilities and amenities as much as the people who sit inside it, the quality of heart. Mrs. Parvathi | Puducherry

The Students

  • I studied here under sponsorship because even the meagre fee was not affordable. After I completed the course I joined PIMS as a nurse and now I draw Rs 7,500 as salary each month.. I can say unequivocally that I owe it all to SVRCC! Samundeshwari | Puducherry

  • After failing in my 10th board examinations, I took to roaming the town with my friends. Despite the brave-face attitude, I really feared for my future. Joining this College was a watershed moment in my life. The lessons imparted in the college helped me turn over. Now I work as mechanic earning Rs 4,000 monthly Karthik | Puducherry

  • I heard about this college from my brother. I passed my 12th standard examinations. But I couldn’t afford engineering and joined this college. I am a bad-tempered person. My College’s yoga and life skill lessons have helped me put my life in order. K Rajesh | Puducherry

  • The College taught me how to face life’s challenges and keep myself fit in the face of adversity. They taught me basic English communication, computer skills necessary for procuring a decent employment these days. Vimala | Puducherry
