Mentoring/Academic Counselling - Amrita College of Education

Amrita College of Education has adopted and implemented a Mentoring system as a student support measure. Mentoring system is an initiative of IQAC team. Our students are grouped under 10 groups and each group is guided by one faculty. Every second Saturday of the month Mentor Mentee meet and discuss their personal and academic issues. These activities and Mentee educational achievement details were entered in Mentor Handbook by the Mentor in a comprehensive manner. Every course instructor collect and make use of the input  from the mentors and arrange for Remedial actions, if necessary.
