Commenting on the unique & memorable accomplishment, Dr. Gayatri Narasimhan, Founder Director, PVI, said, “This is the most satisfying day for not only me but all the professionals (Neurodivergent Students are fondly called professionals at PVI) and their parents. The vocational training by imparting skills has empowered these special students to make a career”. Further, she said, several students from PVI have achieved successful placements in various companies, allowing them to lead dignified lives. Employment avenues include data entry, hotel industry roles, front office positions, and design-related professions.

Skill-based training programs at PVI predominantly feature academic-based modules. These programs are systematic, with curricula meticulously crafted to provide practical training to individuals with special needs. The courses, thoughtfully designed by our faculties, aim to facilitate knowledge acquisition for students across various neurodiverse profiles, revealed Dr. Gayatri Narasimhan.

PVI offers a range of long-term and short-term courses aimed at equipping neurodivergent individuals with valuable skills. Long-term courses also called Career pro, such as Data Analysis & R Programming, Designing & Animation, Early Childhood Education, and Hospitality & Event Management, extend over two years, providing in-depth training to transform participants into experts in their chosen fields. Additionally, PVI offers various job-oriented short-term courses, including MS Office, workplace communication, basic design, and other soft skills.
