Youth Training Programme
Youth Computer Training Centre
The Youth Computer Training Centres run by the Department of Youth Services & Sports (Youth Services wing) in collaboration with different private organizations play an important role in providing low cost computer training to the student-youth across the state enabling them to prepare themselves fit for employment. About 1,000 (One Thousand) Youth Computer Training centres are now running across the state. Every year thousands of student-youth are getting themselves eligible to survive in the competitive job market successfully being trained from these training centres in various courses..
 
As advised by the Department of Information Technology of Govt. of West Bengal, efforts are being given to make the syllabus of these Youth Computer Training Centres as far as possible up to date and compatible with the present job market. Initiatives have also been taken for introducing Online Examination System in all Youth Computer Training Centres of our state. Consequently, all Youth Computer Training Centres have already come under the purview of Online Examination System since the month of July of the last financial year. One world famous multinational organization has been entrusted upon to conduct the entire system of online examination and evaluation thereof. Introduction of this system has enabled us to maintain parity in case of evaluation of the syllabus of all Youth Computer Training Centres with minimum manual effort. The chances of error have also been reduced to a large extent. The students are getting their certificates downloaded online.  This new initiative of the Department has brought revolutionary changes in the entire education system of these Youth Computer Training Centres.
 
In order to spread the computer education to every nook and corner of the state, the department has taken up measures in the present financial year also to set up more and more new Youth Computer Training Centres as well as to introduce more new courses useful in the present time..
