  VOCATIONAL TRAINING PROGRAMMES 

                 Employment generation through vocational training is a major mandate of the KVK. KVK emphasized on conducting tailor made programmes for rural youth ranging from 1 to 5 days so that the trainees can also build up confidence of management of the enterprise besides technical skill. A total of 31 training programmes for rural youths either practicing farmers or school dropouts were organised which were attended by 516 participants. These trainings succeeded in not only empowering participants by way of gain in knowledge but also motivated some of the trainees to translate the knowledge into action as reflected in establishment of vermicompost units, practicing Aquarium shops, supplementary livestock feeding with green fodder and mineral mixture including better management practices and adopting fruit and vegetable preservation practices by women as a group activity. It has led to creation of additional income generation avenues in the region.

v  IN-SERVICE TRAINING PROGRAMME

            Replication of technologies among the farming communities through extension functionaries of line departments is also an important mandate of KVK.   The KVK gives emphasis on faster dissemination of recently developed technologies through the training of the extension functionaries of the various line departments of J&K government.

            Prior to implementation of training programmes for extension functionaries, KVK identified their needs of skills and knowledge related to communication of technologies and techniques.   Necessary information and feedback was collected from the line departments while developing the action plan.  Both the technical information and management tools were included in the training programmes.  Apart from the recommendations of NARS, the results obtained from different Front Line Demonstrations (FLDs) and On Farm Trials (OFTs) were also included in the course curriculum so that the location specific technologies can be transferred to farmers through these extension functionaries.  Different extension methodologies, practical experience sharing and new topics of training have helped to seek a good response from the extension functionaries. The KVK Jammu organised thirty in-service trainings programmes of varying duration benefiting 365 extension functionaries of various line departments.

            Doing these training programmes, KVK had been able to spread the technology enmass for the rural population. There was a greater degree of integration and coordination among the line departments and the KVK due to organisation of the training for extension functionaries.
