Bihar Knowledge Centre

IL&FS Education and Technology Services Limited (IETS), a subsidiary of Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Limited (IL&FS), along with the Bihar State Government has set up a Knowledge Centre dedicated to train and equip students with the latest skills and customized short-term training programmes at affordable costs. Apart from honing technical and professional skills, the Centre also imparts training in soft skills, including communication skills

The Knowledge Centre christened Bihar Knowledge Centre (BKC), has been established by the Bihar e-Governance Services and Technologies Limited (BEST) a joint venture between the State Government and IL&FS. The Government has provided a one-time grant-in-aid for the Centre

The Centre was launched in January 2009. Apart from well qualified teachers the Centre has well equipped classrooms with one computer per student,. The teaching methodology followed is the concept of mentoring where each Mentor has been given the responsibility to groom between 4-5 students. Weaker students are provided with special attention. Separate practical sessions for hands on training are also conducted. The idea is to train the students in a manner, which makes them readily employable in major industrial companies

The Government in the long-term, intends to replicate this BKC concept in maximum number of colleges in Bihar
