IQAC (Internal Quality Assurance Cell)
The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) proposes that every accredited institution establishes an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a post-accreditation quality sustenance measure. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC will be a part of the institutionâ€™s system and will work towards realizing the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance.
The IQAC in Sacred Heart College and the Class Quality Circle (CQC) at the Department of Social Work ensure such quality enhancement.
Opportunity could be enlarged to help the students for vertical mobility in PG programmes
M.Phil and Ph.D programmes introduced in Social Work after 2000.
The College should also strengthen inter-disciplinary programmes.
Faculty members of the department of Social Work conduct certificate programme in SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences) for the Department of Economics and Life Skills Programme for the departments of Computer Science, Commerce, Bio Chemistry and Mathematics.
Remedial courses for students need to be further strengthened.
The Department organizes â€˜Communicative Englishâ€™ programme on every working day between 2.30 and 3.30 pm for those students who need such intervention.
Academic and issue based interactions are organized through the Association of Social Workers twice a month and also by the forums of Community Development, Human Resource Management and Youth Development Specializations
Projects / field works need to be further strengthened. Networking with other institution should be explored.
Project work is a compulsory part of the curriculum. There is a greater level of networking with NGOs, Companies and institutions.
Students are placed in these settings for field work training for around 25 working days in each semester. In addition to this students do one month Block Field Work both in the first year and second year during summer holidays which is mandatory.
They do undertake a Rural Camp for 7 days in the first year and a National Study Tour for 7 days in the second year.
Feedback from students may be established as a formal mechanism.
College uses on line system to get formal feed back from the students of Social Work
