Vocational Centre :   

Started in1928, for those destitute women, deserted wives, helpless widows who had no education and were too old to start schooling, vocational guidance was imparted in the Vocational Center. In the early stages, vocational guidance was imparted in handicrafts like lace work, enamel work, weaving, rattan work, music ( vocal and instrumental), soft toy making, embroidery and dressmaking.   With the passage of time, there have been changes at the Vocational Centre. For many years the centre concentrated only on soft toy making and embroidery which was marketed at the Victoria Technical Institute, then came years of plaited leather shoe upper and panels for bags for export. Courses on Home Nursing and Geriatric care have been held. Presently free courses are imparted in computer literacy under the name Pravarthanalaya.
