Mentoring at KCT is envisaged to enable professional socialization and personal support to facilitate success. It foresees holistic development of the student and helps him set a goal of clarity and enable him to achieve.
With the advent of technology, students today are exposed to new information and ideas constantly. Sometimes this could be an overdose of information and they battle with ideas, not knowing what to do next or how to do it. Having to make good decisions is very critical to success. And it is a skill that comes with having high clarity. Mentors at KCT are well versed in this and help students fine tune their path.
A mentor at KCT will wear several hats over the course of his or her students’ professional development – he is a skill consultant who sharpens his mentee’s intellectual and professional skills, a career consultant who helps the mentee see a diverse view of his career. The guidance go beyond this and the mentor stays as a pillar of strength for the students and they have proved their mentorship to nurture the students for a class apart.
Counseling for personal well-being is yet another active forum in KCT where the student guidance process takes place in a one-to-one, and confidential environment. The counselor, who is highly empathetic assists the students in the areas of their need. Students find the discussions with the counsellor very useful as the sessions take care of the intentions of the students and motivates them accordingly. They are guided on different perspectives and with a non-judgemental attitude, thus leading them to find a solution on their own.
