To fulfil the objective and provide varied options to youths having varied career interests, the Foundation is developing ‘Gautam Group of Institutes’ in its sprawling campus at Bhagan Bigha, close to Biharsharif town, the district headquarter of Nalanda.

 

To start with, the Foundation has started three technical/professional educational institutions –

Gautam Industrial Training Center (ITC/ITI)

 

The Centre is recognized by National Council for Vocational Training (NCVT), Ministry of Labour and Employment, Govt. of India (Affiliation Reg. No. - DGET – 6/04/23/2011-TC).

 

Academic session of the ITC started in 2011 with two trades – Electrician and Fitter. 84 students (42 in each trade/course) registered with the Centre in the first year.

 

Other than giving education/training in chosen courses, GITC is also providing personality development, Spoken English and Basic Computer Education classes to its students for their wholesome capacity building.
