Mentoring is one of the uniqueness of Grace International Academy in shaping students’ lives for a better tomorrow. The basic premise of this activity is that students who come to the college undergoes a transformation in terms of their attitude towards their peer group, teachers, career and society in general through constant interaction between teacher and student.
World is changing at a rapid pace. There are fast changes occurring in industry, job market as well as in the society in general, because of rapid expansion of technology. Along with the changes in society, students are also going through physical and psychological changes in their personality. If they are made aware of the changes in an objective manner, the coping will be much easier. Due to the rapid upgradation of technology, a demand for new products, globalization and a highly competitive market, students need to keep themselves abreast with the latest trends in the industry.
